Read the text and answer the questions which follow. As far as possible, use your own words.

Confucius begins with the following advice: take pleasure in learning. Stay in touch with distant friends. Do not look for compliments.
He then directs these words of wisdom to young people: obey your parents and elders. Do not make too many promises, and be sure to keep all the promises you do make. Think good thoughts about everyone. Study good manners.
Confucius points out that good people do not become unhappy if their good deeds go unnoticed. Rather, unhappiness comes from not noticing the good deeds of others. He urges leaders to show good moral values in order to gain the respect of their subjects.
Govern the people by regulations, keep order among them by chastisements, and they will flee from you, and lose all self-respect. Govern them by moral force, keep order among them by ritual, and they will keep their self-respect and come to you of their own accord.
Confucius goes on to say that young people should behave with virtue so that their parents do not need to worry about them. He points out that good people consider all respects of a question, not just the aspect that directly affects them. Finally, he defines knowledge as recognizing what you don't know as well as what you do know.
Confucius states that the most painful things to see are narrow-minded rulers, insecurity, and fake fears. He urges everyone to behave like the good people that they know and to ignore the bad behaviors of others. He advises us to avoid saying things that we do not mean and to be true to our word; Confucius says; “Study in order to learn something, not to impress other people".
