Confucius says ...

All Aboard the Meme Express – Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Confucius says . . .

Chinese philosopher K'ung Fu-tzu (Confucius) was born on August 27, 551 B.C. To celebrate this occasion, today’s Meme Express prompt offers these oft-quoted statements:

"By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
and third by experience, which is the bitterest."

"Ability will never catch up with the demand for it."

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall."

"To be wronged is nothing
unless you continue to remember it."

"Never give a sword to a man who can't dance."

"Life is really simple,
but we insist on making it complicated."

In your post, feel free to use the image and quotations or not. Pick the quotation that makes you think. Agree or disagree with one of the statements. See where it leads you.

Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)

Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
