Words of wisdom beginning with “Confucius says” are heard on almost a daily basis. Few people know where this originated. Therefore, The Amazing People Club is proud to invite you to ‘Meet Confucius’.
He was a forward thinker and one of the most influential philosophers in the world. A seeker of peace, he believed that if people co-operated with each other and society, this would end fighting and bring harmony and stability. Be inspired by this passionate philosophical leader, whose teachings are as alive today as they were centuries ago.
