  • Kong Qiu, one day, maybe just one day, you'll make China a more peaceful place because of you.
  • And remember, practical direction on life and self is more important than those around you. Got it?
  • *starts panting*
  • During 551-479 BC, in a province on the east coast of China, a famous philosopher was born. He was known as Kong Qiu, otherwise known as Confucious.
  • Humanity, rectitude, tradition, knowledge, and scrupulousness.
  • Years later, he made his own house into a school. Almost everyday, students would come into his home and learn about his teachings. His fame grew and grew, plus he even became chancellor.
  • Do unto others as you would have done to yourself.
  • Back in the day, Chinese states were often at war, and this became a problem for the prince of Lu. He then decided to take a 13-year hike, also known as a sabbatical in Confucianism.
  • In some of Confucius's teachings, he taught other things such as the Five Constants: humanity, rectitude, tradition, knowledge, and scrupulousness.
  • What are the Five Constants?
  • He also invented the Golden Rule; "Do unto others as you would have done to yourself."
  • He also made filial piety, which is a virtue of respect for one's parents, elders, and ancestors. Along with that was the Three Fundamental Bonds, which is the key relations between your relatives.
  • It's not your fault, Mom, I was the one who dropped the glass.
