Philosophy literary works are philosophical texts. The analects of Confucius anu Tao Te Ch'ing of Lao Tzu. Poetry was also part of the Chinese history.

Te means power. The power of a thing is its virtue, its identity, its integrity. So the te of a prison is their authentic self, or genuineness. Te is expressed through humility and meekness.

P U means "unpainted wood" simple life.

Confuciusist concepts, man based man is the center of the mundain world.

Lead by example man is moral and good.
