The Three Teachings

Confucianism: The ancient Chinese used proverbs to teach their children good manners and to help them learn the proper way of doing things. Excerpt from The Analects of Confucius, c.400 BCE:

Do not do unto others, what you would not want others to do to you

If you make a mistake and do not correct it, this is called a mistake


Taoism: Proverbs were used to encourage people to think about things in the right way, which was very Taoist.

There is more to knowing than just being correct.

A clever mind is not a heart.


Buddhism: Proverbs were also used to help each person become the best person they could be. Ancient Buddhist text:

As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind, even so the wise are not ruffled by praise or blame.
