The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


The Founding Master said, “Few people who are filial to their parents and affectionate to their siblings at home will treat others badly; few who are not filial to their parents and not affectionate to their siblings will treat others well. Thus Confucians say, ‘Filiality is the foundation of all conduct,’ and ‘Look for loyal officials at the gate of filiality.’ These words all agree with reality.”
