Two Philosophers, One Same Mind on Friendship!



Available at Beautiful Illustrated Quotations Amazon store for $14.95

From Amazon review: Mencius is known to history as the "other" great philosopher from China. In actuality, Mencius was highly influential as one of the greatest exponents of Conficuan thought, and is credited with bringing Confucianism back from the brink of near extinction in China and cementing its traditions as the major social and ethical current of philosophy in Chinese civilization. This book features some of the greatest teachings of Mencius, with each quote paired with an historical anecdote on the opposite page. Ideal for all collections on Chinese philosophy

From Denny: While I'm rushing out the door to do sales calls out of town I thought I'd start your Monday morning off with two awesome friendship quotes. What struck me as most awesome about them is how they were spoken by two philosophers, worlds apart in different cultures and time periods, yet they saw the same inner illumination. Have a great Monday! Thanks for visiting!
