What Confucius Teaches Us About Modern American Justice - The Atlantic

He who chases two rabbits catches neither.”   —   Confucius

(You’d think by now I’d be a little keener to “He who” quotes, but I struggled mightily on this cipher!  I tried AN, AS, AT, IF, IN, IT, and ON.  I guess I was close with WE, but I couldn’t make a W fit in certain other words.  And, RABBITS never jumped out at me.  LOL!  I was thinking BIGGEST or FULLEST.  Ugh!  So, I Googled “common two letter words”.  I gave TO a quick try, thinking TO ITS, but quickly abandoned that.  Finally, I saw HE and then I could see the H in WHO!  Which helped me to see TWO.  I should do the Cryptoquote before the Celebrity Cipher, because that is generally pretty easy, and I get a little cocky!  Also, I can’t be certain, but this quote seems a little familiar to me.  Anybody else remember it?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”   —   Confucius

(I guess there’s value in even the poorest diamond.  Even a pretty polished pebble is common, when you compare it to the rarity of a diamond.  But, they’re both just various minerals, held together by chemical bonds.  Just like all people have more in common, than their differences.  Together we make a beautiful mosaic.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
