(Confucius quote*) - "Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance."

IMO - For a man, like Confucius, who was/is quoted, respected, and revered as much as he is - I, personally, think that A&E could've taken the time and effort to produce a far more impressive biography-documentary than this decidedly inferior, half-baked "rush job".

Predating the likes of Jesus Christ by 500 years - Confucius may not have possessed the heavenly gift of performing "miracles" - But - All the same - His rocky road to total enlightenment was strictly guided by a rigid code of ethics known as the "5 Virtues".

I think that it's interesting to note that Confucius went to his grave believing himself to be a failure when it came to his life's quest of moral/spiritual illumination for both himself and his fellow man.
