Checkpoint: Eastern Religious Philosopher Quotations Buddhism: Siddhartha Gautama Taoism: Lao Tzu Confucianism: Confucius Mencius Quotation: Watching humanity, seeking answers, and asking, how can we fix humans and all of their bad deeds? Is it possible that self affliction is the answer? Will we ever know? I feel that my quotation fits all of the philosophers because each were watchers of people, all were intelligent to know that humanity suffered whether intentional or non-intentional, and we may never know because philosophy only goes so far when we are speaking about human nature. *Human Suffering and Enlightment* Gautama Siddhartha was a fifth century b. c. philosopher with great concern for people and suffering. Siddhartha’s philosophy eventually became part of the Buddhism religion throughout Asia.

Buddha’s Four Noble Truths speak of suffering, specific and identifiable causes, ending suffering, and following the Eight Fold Path for enlightened living
