If you’ve ever studied Chinese history, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the great philosopher Confucius.

Not only have his words of wisdom had an enormous impact on Chinese society till this day, but he helped countless people live moral and meaningful lives.

He came up with the well-known principle “Do not do to others what you do not want to be done to yourself” and his teachings mainly focused on morality, family loyalty, kindness and how to live an impactful and meaningful life.

I’ve gone through hundreds of his quotes to select his most powerful words of wisdom. Enjoy!
