Confucius
 
  The wise man’s defects are like the eclipses of the sun; they come to every one’s knowledge.  1
  Justice is like the north star, which is fixed, and all the rest revolve about it.  2
  Startle like a wound in the flesh.  3
  Virtue is like the polar star, which keeps its place, and all stars turn towards it.  4
