Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves. – Confucius
Naming and Neccessity
We are human, and yes we feel the need to possess our desires in one breath. Essentially meaning as quickly as possible. Therefore, it is only paramount that we understand what is essential and what is necessary. Naming and labeling create things for the organization for us and as we learn from our things that WE label as a potential area for improvement.
I think this quote is dire AND necessary to the modern human being because getting things in order means so we can accomplish our goals. Moreover, revenge should not be on our list as it detracts us from the things that we need to focus on and the things that should be positive and improve us in some way, shape, or form. When you are positive do you not feel the need or at least you don’t mean doing positive things for those and other beings around you?
Confucius, as some would call him “The Master,” was born in 551 B.C. It’s not wrong or right to feel the need to go back to the basics in life.
The superior man thinks of virtue and isn’t concerned with the things that he can not control.
Negativity can be turned into a positive. Just like in integers stemming from Algebra. Balance and virtuosity is the key to a well-lived life. For example, some may see their creative blooming the most when they are experiencing gloom or reminded of it. However, that doesn’t make one a person of negativity or even cynicism; YES, there is a difference.
As a man should say I am not concerned that I have no place, I am concerned only with how I can fit myself into one. For I am not concerned that I am not known, I seek to be worthy to be known. – Confucius
