Today’s Quote

heart on fire

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

~ Confucius ~

  1. I have no clue who this Conficus man is, but he is certainly right. We have to take care of ourselves first, better ourselves and then we can start building up, making little changes here and there in the people around us, in the people you don´t know, in the government, e.t.c. I´ll have too google this guy now.

  2. Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
    The other day I blogged a poem from Lao Tzu which carried the same message. Confucius and Lao Tzu did not appear to live at the same time, but Lao Tzu contributed to Confucius’ thinking. We begin the process of order internationally and it slowly ripples outwards as it takes hold first with us.

  3. The heart is the source of everything. Without heart there is nothing. Confucius was a very wise man. It is a pity that such wisdom is seldom found these days.
    Bright Blessings
