The Master Said ...

So, were the Confucian Analects off the mark when we read the following?

(VII.23)  The Master said, "Heaven is author of the virtue that is in me. What can Huan T'ui do to me?"

(VII.25)  The Master instructs under four heads: culture, moral conduct, doing one's best and being trustworthy in what one says.

(VII.26)  The Master said, "I have no hope of meeting a sage. I would be content if I met somone who is a gentleman"

(VII.17) The Master said, "Grant me a few more years so that I may study at the age of fifty and I shall be free from major errors."

(VII.20) The Master said, "I was not born with knowledge but, being fond of antiquity, I am quick to seek it."
