“Confucius says….”

I visited numerous temples in Taiwan, including a Confucius temple, which as a teacher I thought was a fitting place to visit, and was inspired more by a few minutes reading the varied “notes to confucius” then by anything I saw on the remainder of my trip. People asking for health and happiness, praying for loved ones struggling with their exams or studies, asking for strength in all that they do in school, in University and in life or simply wishing good luck onto others.

“Life is really simple but we insist on making it complicated”

So in an effort to make this post simpler but still hopefully let readers get a small glimpse into my trip to Taipei, I am just going to post a few simple pictures that stand out in my mind and illustrate what make Taipei a special place. Enjoy. 🙂

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”

“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”

“If your plan is for one year plant rice. If your plan is for ten years plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years educate children. “

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with but a single step!”

“Never contract friendship with a man that is not better than thyself. “


“And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.”
