Something I Find Comforting

Leave a comment

“The Master said, At fifteen I set my heart upon learning. At thirty, I had planted my feet firm upon the ground. At forty, I no longer suffered from perplexities. At fifty, I knew what were the biddings of Heaven. At sixty, I heard them with a docile ear. At seventy, I  could follow the dictates of my own heart; for what I desired no longer overstepped the boundaries of right.”

The Analects of Confucius, II:4
