Celebrate Confucius Day by learning more about this ancient philosopher, and read some of his teachings and sayings.
Note: Over the years, many comical and humorous sayings have been created and referenced as sayings of Confucius, usually titled "Confucius Says". As a rule of thumb, if the saying is humorous, chances are it is not a true saying by this great scholar.
