Confucius' Life Through His Own Words

I originally wrote this entry on August 28, 2004, and published it on

The Master said, "At fifteen I set my heart on learning; at thirty I took my stand; at forty I came to be free from doubts; at fifty I understood the Decree of Heaven; at sixty my ear was atuned; at seventy I followed my heart's desire without overstepping the line."
-The Analects, II.4, trans. by D. C. Lau.

What a glorious life !
