About this title:

Synopsis: Excerpt from The Conduct of Life: The Ethics of Confucius

Only the future will tell how far his staunch guide-ropes to correct conduct will be extended within China, and even be threaded through the dark and dangerous passages Of existence in the lands of the Occident to lead humanity safely to that elevated plane which the lofty ideals Of the philosopher aimed at establishing. Not yet has the world, sagacious as it is, appreciated the wealth of gentleness, the profound forces for good, the uplifting influences embodied in the teachings Of the ancient sage, whose aim, reduced to its simplest definition, was to Show how to get through life like a courteous gentleman.
