Xun Zi Quote
The Road Ahead (1995)
“A doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn't pay his bill, so he gave him another six months.”
Bio: Xunzi was a Chinese Confucian philosopher who lived during the Warring States Period and contributed to one of the Hundred Schools of Thought. Xunzi believed man's inborn tendencies need to be curbed through education and ritual, counter to Mencius's view that man is innately good. He believed that ethical norms had been invented to rectify mankind.
