Confucius was a village boy how loved to learn. He was born in the state of Lü in 551 B.C He didnt get to much education but did very hard to learn everything he could. Confucius himself had a simple moral and political teaching to love others to honor ones parents. He loved to teach children and soon began at an early age.There was even a religion after him called Confucianism.Confucianism is a religion but is not an institution. There are temples honoring Confucius it is true but these are merely public buildings designed for annual ceremonies not places where a community gathers for ritualized worship. Confucius preached a Golden Rule as did Jesus Christ Confucius version is Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself. He loved to teach and made his own school.
3 Why Was Confucius Important To History Confucius himself had a simple moral and political teaching to love others to honor ones parents to do what is right instead of what is of advantage to practice reciprocity i.e. dont do to others what you would not want yourself to rule by moral example (dé) instead of by force and violence and so forth. Confucius thought that a ruler who had to resort to force had already failed as a ruler -- Your job is to govern not to kill (Analects XII19). This was not a principle that Chinese rulers always obeyed but it was the ideal of fair and just rule. It should be noted however that even such good principles are paternalistic and statist without a hint of the ideals of individual liberty that are the basis of modern liberal society 4 PICTURES OF CONFUCIUS!

6 Why We Should Remember Confucius!
I think we should remember Confucius because he didnt just think about himself he thought about other people in his country. I wanted to learn about this person because he wanted to help people who could not afford to spend their money on school. Also not many people would give their precious life for poor villages.
