Confucius expressed the importance for a humane government to win the confidence of people in his reply to his disciple Tzu-kung:
We find, for instance the following: "The Master said, 'There is no one who understands me.' Tzu-kung said, 'How is it that there is no one who understands you?' The Master said, `I do not complain against Heaven (t'ien), nor do I blame men.
Different in character, but still very much his own man, was the merchant and diplomat Tzu-kung. Confucius acknowledged that Tzu-kung was shrewd and capable, and made a great profit from his business deals.
