Fun & Games- - Chinese Style!


Confucius:

Confucius has probably been quoted more than any other person in history. This is perfectly logical since he lived about as long ago as written history was known.

AND, Confucius is most often mis-quoted in humor and verse. While China Unique provides ample space to Confucius the Philosopher, our Fun page is devoted to the misquotes and the humor.

For a little Confucius fun, see Confucius Says..


Fortune Cookies:
