  1. Reflection and imitation go hand-in-hand, as I believe Confucius sought followers, so going about both would reflect and imitate his thoughts. As for the other, experience is bitterness but it is also what we make of it, hence reflect and imitate. The circle of life. Does he miss anything necessary to live? I would say go into the world and make change. Of course the quote makes you think and that is what philosophy is for so I like the quote very much. Thanks for sharing.
