Wisdom of the Week

"Every day I examine myself once and again." - Confucius Says (Wise Men Talking Series)


The new year is the perfect time to begin working on improving oneself. Confucius believed that daily review was one of the best ways to ensure that our words and actions reflect who we want to be. Quietly examining our day before we retire helps us to approach the dawn with new insight into ourselves. We wish you great personal joy in the Year of the Pig!
