For Susan and Alex










"Of all inanimate things, the mirror is the greatest sage."

"To take one's prince to task is respect."

"When the people have enough, how can the ruler alone have too little?"

"The gentleman must make his thoughts sincere."

"Is it not a joy to have friends come from afar?"

"The Duke of Chou subjugated the northern and southern barbarians, drove away the wild animals, and brought security to the people."

“Zi Mo holds on to the middle. Holding on to the middle is closer to being right, but to do this without the proper measure is not different from holding to one extreme.”
