Confucius

Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men.
Confucius

With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.
Confucius

Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?
Confucius

You cannot open a book without learning something.
Confucius
