“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”Confucius
Confucius was a Chinese philosopher whose words of wisdom have inspired many. I remember many a fortune cookie that had his words printed in them. I love this quote from him as a reminder to always keep moving. It is so easy in this day and age to shut down with all the stress in everyday life. Some days just getting out of bed can be an accomplishment… and it is because it is a forward motion. Keep moving!
When it comes to laconic quotes, Confucius has that department covered…
“To know what you know and what you do not know, that is true knowledge.”
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
