"When we see men of worth, we should think of equaling them;
when we see men of a contrary character,
we should turn inwards and examine ourselves."

Thanks for your comments! This statue of Confucius was suggested by me in 2005 and completed in January 2009 inside Rizal Park's Chinese Garden. Its goal is to honor not only Confucius, but all teachers of the world for their noblest profession. The monument is a donation by the Anvil Business Club.
