Mencius (circa 372 – 289 B.C.E.) was a Chinese philosopher. Little is known for certain about his life, but it is believed that his mother placed an early importance on his studies. Later during a chaotic time known as the Warring States period, he is thought to have travelled widely, offering advice to various rulers. These conversations were recorded and form the basis of a book called Mencius, regarded as a Confucian classic.
Quotes by Mencius…
We survive in adversity and perish in ease and comfort.
There is no greater delight than to be conscious of sincerity in self-examination.
