Confucius

I suppose we all have an ear and an eye open to what is happening on the East Coast with Hurricane Irene.

I am going through my email box and deleting and putting in files. Oh, my, how the emails collect.   I've been doing this for days.

I am with the wisdom of Confucius:

When things are investigated, then true knowledge is achieved; when true knowledge is achieved, then the will becomes sincere; when the will is sincere, then the heart is set right; when the heart is set right, then the personal life is cultivated; when the personal life is cultivated, then the family life is regulated; when the family life is regulated, then the national life is orderly; and when the national life is orderly, then there is peace in this world.
