If your desire is for good, the people will be good.
There is an old proverb in our kingdom: “He who seeks revenge should dig two graves.” (Confucius)
Confucius believed that through self-cultivation, one can mold one's character because it is plastic and malleable. Virtue does not come from one's natural ability or innate capacity, but from one's single-minded effort and disciplined practice. Work is therefore not an expression of an individual's own passions and values, but of one's persistent dedication to loving one's family and community.
Confucius was a humanist and an agnostic.
