    The Way of Virtue
    James Vollbracht offers a selection of the teachings of Confucius in The Way of Virtue: An Ancient Remedy to Heal the Modern Soul. Vollbracht says that Confucius was “one of the most remarkable individuals to walk this earth.” Reducing the philosophy of Confucius to clever fortune-cookie type of sayings is a serious loss of wisdom. Vollbracht, a leadership and personal development trainer, says that the teachings of Confucius, “when examined seriously, are recognized as profound expressions of the human spirit. The universality of his message, when understood in the context of his lessons, can yield infinite satisfaction, both personal and national, to those who endeavor to follow his path.” Confucius lived and taught in China more than 2500 years ago, during a time of repressive political regimes, heavy taxation, and near-rebellion from the masses. He believed that virtue was “the most powerful force in the universe.” If people acquired virtue, then they could reform their families, their communities, their nation, and eventually the world.
