Go back to Correct Language

Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC)
Correct Language

If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant;
if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done
remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will
deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about
in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness
in what is said. This matters above everything.
