Wisdom of the Ancient Sages ~ Confucius

Chinese teacher, philosopher and political theorist, lived in the 6th century BC and dedicated his life to relieve people's sufferings.

The way of achieving this was to spread moral living to the people. this was an enormous goal to achieve and in fact he was unable to achieve this goal himself. However, he left behind a philosophical system that still holds up today.

He believed the ultimate virtue was the love of man and the ultimate wisdom the understanding of man.

If we can all attempt to love one another and understand each other then we will see a world of peace.
