I think it is safe to say that nearly everyone is familiar with the sayings of Confucius. When I found the following, I had to scratch my head.
"To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; those five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness.
" It had to be a mistake. So I thought I'd try another one.
"In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of."
There could only be one answer. Some clown had posted these as a joke. They were Pseudo-Confucius sayings. The Confucius we all know and love would never have made such ludicrous statements. He spoke for the common people, like you and I, not for lawyers and politicians.
....So I went surfing again. Finally, after first reading a few, I found the real stuff. The following are what:
Confucius says ....
© Man who fart in church, sit in own pew.
© Foolish man give wife grand piano. Wise man give upright organ.
© Man who walk through airport turnstyle sideways, going to Bangkok.
© Man who read woman like book, prefer Braille.
© Man who put cream in tart, not always baker.
© Man who pulls out too fast, leaves rubber behind.
© Man kicked in testicles, left holding bag.

© Man who masturbates in front of cash register, come into money.
© Man who lose key to woman's apartment, not get new key.
© Man who bounce woman on bedsprings this spring, have offspring next spring.
© Man who date woman with no bust, has right to feel low down.
