Maxims are like proverbs -- wise sayings that instruct one on proper conduct. The following are two examples of maxims of the Analects that are applicable to us today:
"Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart." This can be paraphrased as, "Whatever you choose to do, do your best." or "Anything worth doing, is worth doing well." In today's fast-paced world, we tend to multi-task, look for short-cuts, and often leave things half done. We would do well to consider what is important enough to us that it deserves our best effort, while looking to forgo whatever we can't commit to 100%.
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do." We often hear this today as, "Its not how often you fall, but how many times you get up."
This emphasizes the importance of not giving up, but, instead, learning from our mistakes and developing skills and strategies to succeed where we have previously failed.
Hope this helps!

O Night, thou Child of Heaven, acceptThis laud as for a conqueror.

Muddy Road,The Thief Who Become a Disciple, and The Taste of Banzo's Sword are Zen parables in which some of the characters behave in unexpected or unusual ways to teach a lesson. CHOOSE ONE OF THESE PARABLES AND CITE TWO specific examples of unexpected behavior. Then explain how this unexpected behavior helps to teach a lesson to the reader or to the other characters.
One night, Shichiri Kojun was surprised in his home by a thief who demanded his money of his life. Rather than confront the thief, Shichiri unexpectedly told him where the money was and that he might have it (except for a bit that was needed for taxes). Shichiri was demonstrating the principle of exercising composure and compassion, rather than fear and anger. Later, the thief was arrested. Although Shichiri didn't accuse him, he was sent to prison for other thefts. After he was released from prison, the thief unexpectedly returned to Shichiri and became his disciple. This teaches that even the hard heart of the thief could be changed by the mercy and kindness that Shichiri afforded him.
Paradox is one of the most effective teachings devices used in the Bhagavad-Gita. Select three paradoxical statements from the excerpt Philosophy and Spiritual Discipline. Explain what the apparent contraction is in each statements and the lesson that each teaches.
Nothing of non-being comes to be,nor does being cease to exist;
the boundary between these two
is seen by men who see reality.
This teaches that there is no beginning nor end to existence and that the way we commonly think of there being a the boundary between life and death is just an illusion.
Arjuna, when a man knows the self
to be indestructible, enduring, unborn,
unchanging, how does he kill
or cause anyone to kill?
Teaches that while it appears the body is the person and that a person can killed, the true eternal self is beyond destruction.
Be intent on action,
not on the fruits of action;
avoid attraction to the fruits
and attachment to inaction!
It is more important
Teaches that following appropriate action is what is important, and not to be concerned with results (fruits) of the actions.
