Quotations:

Those's who speak do not know and those who know do not speak. Confusious
He who rules his state on a moral basis would be supported by the people, just as the Polar star is encircled by all the other stars. p 12.

Regulated by the edits and punishments, the people will know only how to stay out of trouble but will not have a sense of shame. Guided by virtues and the rites, they will not only have a sense of shame but also know how to correct their mistakes of their own accord. p 13.

People will obey you if you promote righteous men and suppress evil men. And they will disobey you if you do the contrary.

If one learns the truth in the morning, one would never regret dying the same evening. p 51.

Courtesy without following the rites leads to tiredness, caution without following the rites leads to cowardice, courage without following the rites leads to rudeness; frankness without following the rites leads to harshness. Subordinates imitate their superiors; when a superior man devotes himself to his own kin, the people will cherish the cultivation of benevolence. When he does not forget his friends, people will not be indifferent to one another. p. 129.

When learning something new, one should worry about being unable to reach it. When one has learnt something, one should worry about forgetting it. p. 138.

Fan Chi asked about benevolence. Confucius said, "Be respectful to parents, be conscientious in official affairs. Be loyal and honest to friends. These three moral principles can never be defied anywhere." p. 241.

A gentleman always keeps even-tempered without being arrogant while a petty man is arrogant without being even-tempered. p. 246.

Studying Zen, learning the way, is originally for the sake of birth and death, no other thing.

What do I mean by other things? Arousing the mind and stirring thoughts right now; having contrivance and artificiality; having grasping and rejecting; having practice and realization; having purity and defilement; having sacred and profane; having Buddhas and sentient beings; writing verses and songs, composing poems and odes; discoursing on Zen and the way; discoursing on right and wrong; discoursing on past and present.

These various activities are not relevant to the issue of birth and death; they are all "other things."
