"1. Right Attitude. This includes a heart that seeks to be in harmony with other people. All people have the seed of this within them (1) but it must be helped to develop fully. This attitude is also one of inner self control.
2. Right Procedure. Such a person has studied the rules of conduct and seeks to implement them in his life. But to do this Confucianists also understand, "A man without charity in his heart, what has he to do with ceremonies?"
3. Right Knowledge. Memorized rules must become right behavior. The Chinese Classics are the basics of education in China. They teach history and literature and such education is thought to teach cultural refinement. Leaders, especially, were encouraged to develop a strong moral example for the people. How else could they learn to govern rightly and with kindness? The Golden Age could not occur again until all people understood and implemented right moral behavior.
4. Right Moral Courage. The Superior Man had to be faithful to ones self, developing an inner sense of moral courage and virtue. If everyone did this, how smoothly society could operate!
5. Right Persistence. Doing ones duty must be sustained. Because the Superior Man is at harmony with himself he can be at harmony with all humanity and with the universe. Right behavior has become en grained within ones character. This must be lived out faithfully."
