Quotations: August 2006 Archives

K'ung Fu-tzu

I know, it's the old Wade-Giles transliteration, the one that I'm comfortable with--but I'm just stealing a quotation from The Western Confucian anyway:

To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.

We have much to learn from our brothers and sisters outside of the faith--and too often we forget it. Our lives are made immeasurably richer by the depth and the beauty of those, who not knowing Christ, nevertheless were granted to hear his voice:

"My sheep hear my voice and they know me."
