Confucius - the Sage of All Time

Confucius (551-479 BCE) is the most famous person in Chinese history. His ethical philosophy became the basis for Confucianism, one of China's three great religions. Confucius taught filial piety and the golden rule of empathy. He wanted rulers to lead by good example rather than by force. He started his career as a tax collector, but was disillusioned by official bribery and over-taxation. The Analects is a compilation of his sayings, written by his followers after his death.
