Sayings of Confucius

Title: The Sayings of Confucius

Editor: Ware, James R.

Publisher: New American Library

Date: 1955

Although this translation of the Analects of Confucius is quite old, it is still very good. Even compared to some more recent translations, it stands up as being readable and poetic and somehow seems to capture more the spirit of the original. There is plenty of material in the Analects to inspire ethical discussion and increase one’s knowledge of classical Chinese philosophy.
