The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell.
      - [Understanding]

The superior man wishes to be slow in his words and earnest in his conduct.
      - [Moderation]

The way of the superior man is threefold, but I am not equal to it. Virtuous, he is free from anxieties; wise, he is free from perplexities; bold, he is free from fear.
      - [Man]

The wheel of fortune turns incessantly round, and who can say within himself, I shall to-day be uppermost?
      - [Fortune]

There are three friendships which are advantageous, and three which are injurious. Friendship with the upright; friendship with the sincere; and friendship with the man of much observation: these are advantageous. Friendship with the man of specious airs; friendship with the insinuatingly soft; and friendship with the glib-tongued: these are injurious.
      - [Friendship]

There has never been a man mean and at the same time virtuous.
      - [Meanness]

Those who know the truth are not equal to those who love it.
      - [Truth]

To acknowledge our faults when we are blamed, is modesty; to discover them to one's friends in ingenuousness, is confidence; but to preach them to all the world, if one does not take care, is pride.
      - [Faults]

To be able under all circumstances to practise five things constitutes perfect virtue: these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.
      - [Virtue]

To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice.
      - [Cowardice]

To lead an uninstructed people to war is to throw them away.
      - [War]

To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
      - [Order]

To see and listen to the wicked is already the beginning of wickedness.
      - [Wickedness]

True benevolence is to love all men. Recompense injury with justice, and kindness with kindness.
      - [Benevolence]

Virtue is like the polar star, which keeps its place, and all stars turn towards it.
      - [Virtue]

Virtue is more to man than either water or fire. I have seen men die from treading on water and fire, but I have never seen a man die from treading the course of virtue.
      - [Virtue]

We take greater pains to persuade others that we are happy than in endeavoring to think so ourselves.
      - [Happiness]

What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.
      - [Self-examination]

When anger rises, think of the consequences.
      - [Proverbs]

When music and courtesy are better understood and appreciated, there will be no war.
      - [Music]

When we see men of worth, we should think of becoming like them; when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inward and examine ourselves.
      - [Example]

When you know a thing, to recognize that you know it, and when you do not know a thing, to recognize that you do not know it. That is knowledge.
      - [Knowledge]

Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.
      - [Proverbs]

Woman is the masterpiece.
      - [Women]

Words are the voice of the heart.
      - [Words]
