Chinese Wisdom of the Week

"Neglect of what is good in me; want of thoroughness in study; failure to do the right when told me; lack of strength to overcome faults, these are my sorrows. " -- Confucius

Even though Confucius was regarded as a truly enlightened individual, he realized that every person, including himself, had room for improvement. The knowledge of a need for self-improvement displays great wisdom. We hope, as you work toward your own self-improvement, that you find true happiness and success in this continuous internal project.
