Overview

Comprising The Analects Of Confucius, The Sayings Of Mencius, The Shi-King, The Travels Of F-Hien, And The Sorrows Of Han With Critical And Biographical Sketches.

The strangest figure that meets us in the annals of Oriental thought is that of Confucius. To the popular mind he is the founder of a religion, and yet he has nothing in common with the great religious teachers of the East. We think of Siddartha, the founder of Buddhism, as the very impersonation of romantic asceticism, enthusiastic self-sacrifice, and faith in the things that are invisible. Zoroaster is the friend of God, talking face to face with the Almighty, and drinking wisdom and knowledge from the lips of Omniscience.
