- Education and Science
If you think about Quotes, then you have to refer Greece. That country has more scholars like Socrates, Aristotle, Plateau and they have teached the entire world with their powerful quotes.
Other countries also had equal contributors in the field. If India gave Thiruvalluvar, China has given Confucius.
Those days, there was a proverb about preachers, like blind people searching cat in the dark room. Beyond those criticism they have created history.
Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.— Confucius
His Early Life
Confucius has born 2500 years back in 551 AD in Shandong to the 70 years old man and his remarried wife. At the age of 4, he lost his father and the family suffered in poverty. He did small and petty works for his living. With those experience, he thought about why people are suffering and what is the reason behind such things and he started to search for those answers at his 16th age.
He has learn history and civil engineering and became a history teacher. He got married in his 20th year and his thinking was about the society and so he was not successful in his married life. He brought up his three children with good qualities. He ran for searching for jobs and the Government identified his knowledge and he was appointed as Officer in food storage go-down. He has incorporated lot of changes in the system and he got appreciation.
Confucius who hated politics, but was offered to lead the government organization. He listed out the policy for better governance and he got popular. He believed that education is the only thing which can uplift the society and with the help of the government, he started one institution. This grown like the institution of Aristotle. There, political management, social uplift ment, life qualities and character development were conducted.
Teaching of Confucius - Review
Confucius was so wise, and I guess the fact that his wisdom has been absorbed so thoroughly by our culture, that it is easy to forget that it was this man who thought of these pearls of wisdom, and they haven't "been around forever."
En-lighting with the knowledge of education is the real knowledge. This was the basic philosophy of Confucius. By seeing the interest shown by Confucius to remove illiteracy, defining the importance of work, their followers praised him like god. But this appraisal was not accepted by him and he was not having any belief over religion.
He believed that people are wasting their time in religious ceremonies and discussions and to remove the illiteracy of people, religion is the only hurdle. This is not realized by the religious people and he declared this publicly to them, why he is against religion.
Every human should follow good character and qualities in their life. They should have fear and faith in their work and should be loyal to it. Even though he was praised by many, some persons who were in power hated him and thus he resigned from his government job.
He travel led around the world and he planted his ideas everywhere. Some rulers gave subsidy to him, as a token of love towards his work but he said sorry to them.
After hectic schedule of his work and living in poverty, he fall sick at the age of 70. He stayed as a tribal in his old age and used to discuss with his followers.
At the age of 71, 479 B C he left the world and lived in everybody's mind. His philosophy was called as "Confuciusm" and the followers were following it like a religion. This followers still there after 2500 years of his preaching. Such a thinking and wonderful personality.
