The Analects of Confucius contain a lot of very inspirational and eyeopening quotes that can change the way you view certain aspects of life.
Here is a list of some of the Confucius quotes that I thought were the strongest. I hope you enjoy reading them.
  • It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
  • The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence. 
  • Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
  • Go before the people with your example, and be laborious in their affairs.
  • Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.
  • The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.
  • Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous.
  • Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?
  • We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression.
  • The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.
  • The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.
  • It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.
