Ancient Chinese Philosophy Quotes
"A good leader is one who is virtuous and kind towards his subjects in exchange for their loyalty."
I think that the key concepts in this quote are good leaders are kind to their followers in exchange for their devotion. This quote was said by Confucius, it means "the teachings of Confucius emphasizing love for humanity; high value given to learning and to devotion to family (including ancestors); peace; justice; influenced the traditional culture of China" that was the definition from Audio English . Confucius believed in Confucianism, is a way to live by things you should do and how you should behave. People think is more of a philosophy than a religion. Confucius or real name Kong Qiu he was said to be very wise even as a child. Once he got out of school he had gotten wiser.

“There is crime to the degree the government interferes and meddles in individuals’ lives.”
I think this quote means that when bad things happen, the government needs to step in which messes with other people's lives. Laozi said that quote, he was born in Quren a village in the distract of Hu. Laozi believes in Taoism, Taoism believes that "a Chinese sect claiming to follow the teaching of Lao-tzu but incorporating pantheism and sorcery in addition to Taoism" That definition was from Audio English. A cool thing that Laozi did was hold a meeting with young Confiucus and old Doaist . Even though Laozi blamed Confucius for his pride and ambition, while Confucius compared Laozi to a dragon.
Reflection Questions
“No country is permanently strong. Nor is any country permanently weak. If conformers to law are strong, the country is strong; if conformers to law are weak, the country is weak.”
I think that this quote means if the people in the country are weak, then the country is weak and the same with strength. No country is permanently strong or weak. Dao said this quote. Dao believed in Daoism which teaches how to act towards oneself and nature.

I believe the three things that would create an ideal society would be a central government that keeps out of people's lives. I think that in every state, individuals should be able to pump their own gas. Lastly, I believe that there needs to be a greater desire to work and reward for doing a good job.
