Confucius quote correct or not?


Recommended Posts

There is a saying said to be by Confucius, 'A man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever', or similar wording. Is this really by Confucius or is it fake?

There are quite a few from all over the world and times in this vein. 


It wouldn't surprise me if he did say something along those lines.




"The only stupid questions are questions not asked."

Yes, I am aware this is all over the Web, but so are a lot of fake quotes, which is why I'm asking. 

Thanks for the chop Suey, 889. As far as I can make sense of your original, that would be a big leap! I got as far as "Confucius said..."
