Did Confucius, China’s most famous teacher, philosopher, and political theorist (551-479 BC) really say this?
Was this position on reading one of his analects (teachings)?
I don’t know, but the sentiments certainly ring true. Read, read and read some more. Today there really is no excuse for ignorance with so much information at our fingertips.
Confucius apparently did say ‘True wisdom is knowing what you don’t know’. Or something like that.
The easiest way to remedy ignorance is to read. And the easiest way to read is to buy or borrow reading material. In doing so, you’re supporting storytelling and those that ply its trade.
In a roundabout way, Confucius said so!
