Confucio / 孔子 | Aforismi



  • L'uomo superiore è calmo senza essere arrogante; l'uomo dappoco è arrogante senza essere calmo.
  • Ciò che non vuoi che sia fatto a te, non farlo agli altri.
  • Mettete la lealtà e la fiducia sopra ogni cosa; non accettate l'amicizia di chi vi è moralmente inferiore; non abbiate paura di correggere i vostri errori.
  • Chi non cambia è solo il saggio più elevato o lo sciocco più ignorante.
  • Colui che desidera assicurare il bene di altri si è già assicurato il proprio.
  • Colui che governa per mezzo della sua virtù è... come la stella polare: rimane al suo posto, mentre tutte le stelle minori le rendono omaggio.
  • Fate il bene in ogni tempo, in ogni luogo, in tutte le circostanze in cui potrete farlo; e sarete, a non dubitarne, virtuosi e saggi.
  • Fate il bene per se medesimo, senz'alcun motivo d'interesse personale; vi sarà resa la giustizia che meritate, godrete senza contrasto della riputazione di virtù e di sapienza, che si forma da se medesima in favore di quelli che così si governano senza parere di ambirla.

    Ancient Buddhism and Buddhist Art


    Buddha, Probably Amitabha Amituofo | Early 7th century | China | Metropolitan Museum of Art

    The history of Buddhism spans from the 6th century BCE to the present. Buddhism arose in the eastern part of Ancient India, in and around the ancient Kingdom of Magadha (now in Bihar, India), and is based on the teachings of Siddhārtha Gautama.
    The religion evolved as it spread from the northeastern region of the Indian subcontinent through Central, East, and Southeast Asia. At one time or another, it influenced most of the Asian continent.
    The history of Buddhism is also characterized by the development of numerous movements, schisms, and schools, among them the Theravāda, Mahāyāna and Vajrayāna traditions, with contrasting periods of expansion and retreat.
