Confucius was a wise person and wrote many wonderful and simple quotes. Those who repeat them appear to be smart and wise. If you repeat some of the quotes and, add a few of your own, most people would not know the difference. It would be fun to get your points sounding like Confucius. Spirituality is so diverse that if you add your spice many will not notice. I, too, have done a lot of mischief using the names of my spiritual Masters. Similarly, God, too, plays tricks on you. He starts sending you messages that astonish you and, in time, you start spreading the words of wisdom. You cannot tell others that God spoke to you. So, go back to using the names of spiritual Masters as if they said it. The joke is on you, as you, now, are being used as Confucius. — Satish Daryanani
