Here is more text from the works of Confucious, Jr., a man who demanded to be known publicly as the direct ascendant of his namesake, the perennially quoted Chinese philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period in China, in 477 B.C.
The self-named Confucius, Jr. began to publish hundreds of works that were lost in a wave of public disinterest. The works were found only recently in an archeological dig that discovered the burial site of Kong Li, the first child of Confucius.
