The ethics taught by Confucius, the Chinese gentleman, nearly two thousand five hundred years ago, is well up to the standard of any system of ethics so far recorded, as an investigation of his texts will prove. His ethical teachings are simple and practical, yet lofty in tone; they embody the wisdom of one of the greatest philosophers and legislators, of whom Voltaire in his Dictionary of Philosophy said: “What more beautiful rule of conduct has ever been given man since the world began? Let us admit that there has been no legislator more useful to the human race.”
