Confucius Analect of the Week, July 9, 2011

The Master wanted Ch’i-tiao K’ai to take office, but he replied, “I do not yet command sufficient confidence for that.”  And the Master was pleased.  (James R. Ware, Chapter V, Verse 6)

Wouldn’t it be nice to see a bit more humility among our political candidates?  Perhaps some experience other than a couple of uneventful years in political office and mouthing political shibboleths?
