Irrepressible enthusiasm

LFG35

子曰:「默而識之,學而不厭,誨人不倦,何有於我哉?」
Confucius said: “Quietly absorbing knowledge, learning and yet never growing weary, teaching and yet never becoming tired – how can any of these be difficult for me?”

The opening section of Book 7 of the Analects features some revealing quotes from Confucius about his character and approach to life.

One of his most admirable qualities was his irrepressible enthusiasm for learning and sharing his knowledge with the people around him. Even in his age old age, his devotion to studying and teaching never flagged.
