עמוד 274 - ... there's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them how we will.
עמוד 12 - There were four things from which the Master was entirely free. He had no foregone conclusions, no arbitrary predeterminations, no obstinacy, and no egoism.
עמוד 211 - Sir, in carrying on your government, why should you use killing at all? Let your evinced desires be for what is good, and the people will be good. The relation between superiors and inferiors, is like that between the wind and the grass. The grass must bend, when the wind blows across it.
עמוד 146 - A youth, when at home, should be filial, and, abroad, respectful to his elders. He should be earnest and truthful. He should overflow in love to all, and cultivate the friendship of the good. When he has time and opportunity, after the performance of these things, he should employ them in polite studies.
עמוד 51 - 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.
עמוד 120 - He who aims to be a man of complete virtue, in his food does not seek to gratify his appetite, nor in his dwelling-place does he seek the appliances of ease : he is earnest in what he is doing, and careful in his speech ; he frequents the company of men of principle that he may be rectified : — such a person may be said indeed to love to learn.
עמוד 188 - When a ruler rejoices in the joy of his people, they also rejoice in his joy; when he grieves at the sorrow of his people, they also grieve at his sorrow. A sympathy of joy will pervade the empire ; a sympathy of sorrow will do the same : — in such a state of things, it cannot be but that the ruler attain to the Imperial dignity.
עמוד 79 - When we see men of worth, we should think of equalling them ; when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.
עמוד 114 - Is there one word which may serve as a rule of practice for all one's life?" The Master said, "Is not RECIPROCITY such a word? What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
עמוד 36 - The mind of the superior man is conversant with righteousness ; the mind of the mean man is conversant with gain.
