Confucius is regarded as the greatest teacher to ever exist in China, and his teaching have since helped many people all over the globe to become better people. He wrote many books, such as the “Book of Changes”, “What You do not Want Done to Yourself, do not do to Others”, “Life is Really Simple, but We Insist on Making it Complicated”, and “Our Greatest Glory is not in Never Failing but in Rising Every Time we Fall”, which have become passages of great insight. These books were the base for Chinese school education for many years to come.
