frases de confucio

«Conozco los sentimientos de mi corazón y conozco a los hombres. No estoy hecho como ninguno de los que he visto; me aventuro a creer que no estoy hecho como ninguno de los que existen. Si no soy mejor, al menos soy diferente. Si la naturaleza ha actuado bien o mal al destruir el molde en el que me fundió, sólo puede decidirse después de haberme leído.»

«El primer hombre que, habiendo acotado un terreno, pensó en decir Esto es mío, y encontró gente lo suficientemente sencilla como para creerle, fue el verdadero fundador de la sociedad civil. De cuántos crímenes, guerras y asesinatos, de cuántos horrores y desgracias no habría salvado nadie a la humanidad, arrancando las estacas, o llenando la zanja, y gritando a sus semejantes: «Cuidado con escuchar a este impostor; estáis perdidos si olvidáis una vez que los frutos de la tierra nos pertenecen a todos, y la tierra misma a nadie.»

Several works appeared posthumously: in 1781 his Essay on the Origin of Languages [4] and a continuation of the Emile, Émile et Sophie, ou les Solitaires, as well as the Confessions (1782-1789). The Moral Letters would only be published in 1888.[5].

Given his estrangement from the encyclopedists of the time and his confrontation with the Catholic Church, because of his polemical doctrines, his literary style changed. His autobiographical works made a fundamental change in European literature; to such an extent that he is considered a pre-romantic author or precursor of Romanticism. The works of his that most influenced his time were Julia, or the New Eloise (1761) and Emilie, or Of Education (1762), since they transformed ideas about the family.[6]
