Confucius Analect of the Week, May 6, 2011

Confucius was in Lexington, Kentucky, getting ready for the Kentucky Derby.  As was his wont, he offered an analect for the occasion.

“When his stable was burned the Master returned home from the palace and inquired, ‘Was anyone injured?’  He did not ask about the horses.”  (James R. Ware, Chapter X, Verse 11)

Upon hearing his analect, Derby officials promptly escorted Confucius out of town.  Evidently Confucius did not understand the market value of Derby racehorses.

Confucius wants to wish all you moms out there “Happy Mother’s Day.”
