Editor's note: This is an extract from The Governing Principles of Ancient China, based on 360 passages excerpted from the original compilation titled Qunshu Zhiyao, or The Compilation of Books and Writings on Important Governing Principles. Commissioned by Emperor Tang Taizong of the Tang Dynasty in the seventh century, the book contains advice, methods and historical notes on the successes and failures of the imperial governments of China. Today it continues to be relevant as a source of inspiration for self-improvement, family management and interpersonal relations.
