Six quotes by Confucius
Confucius (Chinese: 孔夫子; pinyin: Kǒng Fūzǐ, Master Kǒng; or commonly 孔子; Kǒngzǐ; c. 551 – c. 479 BCE) was a Chinese philosopher and politician of the Spring and Autumn period who is traditionally considered the paragon of Chinese sages. Confucius's teachings and philosophy underpin East Asian culture and society, remaining influential across China and East Asia to this day.
