Confucius has made his mark on many. And perhaps we should all raise a glass - or maybe recite a gnomic philosophical axiom - for today, 28 September, marks the historic birth date of the legendary Chinese philosopher, teacher, ethicist and political thinker (551-479BC).

The phrase "A picture is worth ten thousand words" is  one of his.

But this second one seems more in line with what I would expect of an ancient inscrutable sage.

To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.

Oh dear, too much knowledge for my little brain to handle.
