The Sayings of Confucius. Translated by Leonard A. Lyall. Confucius was born in the year 550 b.c., in the land of Lu, in a small village, situated in the western part of the modern province of Shantung. His name was K'ung Ch'iu, and his style (corresponding to our Christian name) was Chung-ni. His countrymen speak of him as K'ung Fu-tzu, the Master, or philosopher K'ung. This expression was altered into Confucius by the Jesuit missionaries who first carried his fame to Europe. Since the golden days of the Emperors Yao and Shun, the legendary founders of the Chinese Empire, nearly two thousand years had passed. Shun chose as his successor Yu, who had been his chief minister, a man whose devotion to duty was such that when engaged in draining the empire of the great flood-a task that took eight years to accomplish-he never entered his home till the work was done, although in the course of his labours he had thrice to pass his door.

PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...

ABOUT THE BOOK Like many people out there, I sometimes visit quotations websites, just to read a few wise words, have my spirits lifted, and maybe get some ideas. And quotations by Confucius are always worth reading for their emphasis on human values and strengths. Confucius was fundamentally a humanist, believing that we each shape our own destiny. His words of wisdom rarely, if ever, suggested that we give up control of our lives to any higher beings or unseen powers. He always insisted that we can achieve our goals through being humble, hard-working and wise. One thing, however, that I think has stopped me from being overly enthusiastic about Confucius is that he does seem to dwell a lot on discipline and correct ways of behaviour, on ritual. And he seems to think a lot about working as part of a team, in a collective or something. But given that he lived at the time of Imperial China, that’s understandable. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989. Among the more well known titles he has written for are The Guardian newspaper, Time Out magazine and the International Business Times website. He has edited a number of local and community newspapers, magazines and websites, and has, over the course of his career, worked for some of the largest publishers in Europe, including Emap, LLP and Mirror Group Newspapers. Abdul has also worked outside of the United Kingdom, moving to Abu Dhabi for a year to work on the first national daily newspaper in United Arab Emirates, The National; and he has consulted for media companies in Bangladesh, where he was born. Abdul briefly worked for a New York-headquartered cable television channel called AsiaNet as a news editor, and realised that although he loves researching, writing and other "technical" parts of a journalist's job, he does not like presenting, preferring to be behind the camera or back in the studio. In his spare time, Abdul likes to spend time with his family, cooking, eating, watching films, listening to music, reading and writing. When he goes out he likes to watch movies at the best cinemas, see live music performances, and eat at good restaurants. He also loves gardening, fishing and going for long walks. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Confucius was a teacher, politician, thinker and philosopher who lived during the days of what’s called Early Imperial China. It’s believed that he was born in the year 551 BC—that’s more than 2,500 years ago. His father was said to be a warrior who had had a number of successes in various battles and owned a fiefdom, although some sources say that he was actually a poor military officer and Confucius himself was brought up in poverty. Nontheless, Confucius belonged to a social class that was positioned somewhere between common people and the old nobility of Early Imperial China. This particular group of people seemed to have been like the modern middle classes in the West, and made progress in life by acquiring knowledge and skills. And although he had been a teacher and a student for a lot of his life, Confucius himself had apparently chosen a life in politics, and by the age of 53 he had worked his way up to the position of Justice Minister in Lu, one of the western provinces in ancient China.

This spectacular collection contains the key writings of Confucius, Mencius and Faxian, superbly translated by three leading scholars of China in the West. This anthology of Chinese literature was first published at the turn of the 20th century, and is intended as an superb introduction to the facets of wisdom and thought which emerged from the country in ancient times. The writings within retain their timeless nature, and together form an excellent representation of the intellectual development which attained prominence in Ancient China - the Confucian philosophy expressed continues to influence Chinese and Asian cultures in the modern day. The Analects of Confucius is a pivotal work of Confucianism which contains many of the philosophic ideas and jewels of wisdom for which its author is renowned. The Sayings of Mencius comprises of several dialogues held between the Confucian philosopher and various students, nobles and contemporaries of the era. The Travels of Fa-Hien (Faxian) is an early travelogue which chronicles the author's journeys far beyond the farthest extent of Chinese civilisation. Faxian was a Buddhist monk intrigued by the origins of his religion - through his travels he encountered Indian, Nepalese and other peoples, and the stunning temple of the Indian king Ashoka. To this day, Faxian's writings remain an important source for scholars of Asian antiquity. The Sorrows of Han is one of the earliest tragic plays produced for the stage in Ancient China. Although but a small part of the Chinese dramatic library, the play is representative of the performances which would be staged often on temporary stages erected in the bustling marketplaces as a form of public entertainment. While the Chinese placed less importance on drama than the Greeks, it was popular and reflective of the national character."

"Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know men." - Confucius. The Ethics of Confucius presents everyone with the opportunity to understand the true nature of the Confucian concept of good conduct to encourage independent, clear thinking about the purposes of life and what may be done with it. This volume of ethical teachings, which are almost purely secular, covers self-development - the conduct of "The Superior Man" - but also the family, the state, the cultivation of the fine arts, and universal relations. These insightful, timeless teachings by Confucius and his disciples are arranged by, and commented upon, by Miles Menander Dawson. MILES MENANDER DAWSON (1863-1942) was deeply interested in poetry and philosophy, particularly ethics, and wrote books about the teachings of Zoroaster, Socrates, as well as Confucius. Born in Wisconsin, Dawson spent his life as a highly respected actuary in New York. He wrote numerous books on life insurance and actuarial science and was a member of the Confucian Society of China.
