Book Description: (LARGE PRINT EDITION) 1936. Confucius Said It First is the result of the author's conversation with the former president of a men's club near Boston. Dr. Hsieh was talking to the ex-president about great teachers and in the course of the conversation had dwelt at length on Confucius. Yes, said the Boston suburbanite, Confucius was indeed a great master. He was Italian was he not? Following this, Hsieh hurried to his home and dug out his articles on the sayings of Confucius, which were published in Colliers and reprinted in the Reader's Digest. He took them to the best Boston publishers and had them republished as this volume. It is a wonderful little book that you can slip into your pocket and, in subways, taxis, arm chairs and bed, discover that Confucius wasn't Italian and that he said, first, many of the words of wisdom that are still most honorable guide posts to peaceful and happy living. Contents: Confucius Said It First; Confucius Holds Mirror to Life; Sayings of Confucius; and Chinese Proverbs.
