Book Description Wings Books, 1995. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. "Confucius takes such a positive, simple, and humanistic approach on life which really affects you deeply. It's amazing that Confucius lived more than 2500 years ago; many of teachings still ring true to present day events and views."¿The man that may be regarded as perfect now is the one who, seeing some advantage to himself, is mindful of righteousness; who, seeing danger, risks his life; and who, if bound by some covenant of long standing, never forgets its conditions as life goes on.¿.
