(385-289 B. C), Chinese sage
Men must be decided on what they will not do, and then they are able to act with vigor in what they ought to do.
The path of duty lies in what is near, and men seek for it in what is remote.—The work of duty lies in what is easy, and men seek for it in what is difficult.
The way of truth is like a great road. It is not difficult to know it. The evil is only that men will not seek it.
