Confucius, China’s greatest philosopher, was born on October 18th, 551 BC. What that has to do with September 29th, no one knows but I guess that would be missing the point. Confucius had 499 sayings the world remembers him for. Why not 500? There are those that say Confucius was only playing with people when he gave his quotes, I doubt we will every know. There are so many mysteries concerning Confucius, in fact, there are those that doubt he even was a real person. We probably won’t ever really know that for sure either.
