Confucius passed away 2,500 years ago, but his voice is still heard far and wide today. Sayings attributed to the Master can be found in books and online, on coffee mugs, shopping bags, posters, t-shirts, and so on. This China Seminar talk presents a number of sayings, both ancient and modern, and analyzes their historical accuracy. It also reflects on how the Master still speaks to us today, even if he may not have actually said what he is claimed to have said.
