Confucius is remembered for his practical applied philosophy. His sayings are a reflection of many centuries of common sense sayings making his philosophy deeply Chinese.

Some of my favorite translated sayings are:

  • The man who knows he can, and the man who knows he cannot, are both correct.

  • Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.

  • The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.

  • You are what you think.

  • All people are the same; only their habits differ.

  • Roads were made for journeys, not destinations.

  • Respect yourself, and others will respect you.
