This was my most useful source. It gave a clear and through explanation to Confucius’s eminence, and it gave a overview of his life.
He, tiewen. “Hejie.” Kelu, Li. 庄子. Beijing: Beijing North Star publication, 1971. 260. Book.
This was one of my most useful sources, and it was one of the first reliable historical texts about Confucius. It also included some of Confucius’s believes and thoughts.
Lin, zexu. “Daotuo.” Kelu, Li. 庄子. Beijing: Beijing North Star publication, 1971. 322. Book.
This was also a important part of the book, 庄子, and it recorded a conversation between Confucius and Daotuo, which demonstrated the conflict between Ruism and Faism. I didn’t include any of the information in my speech, but it helped me understand the system of thoughts and believes for the general population prior to Confucius.

This website had a translation of the Analects, and it thoroughly explains and translates the text.

I relied mainly on this source for my information about Ruism. It was clear, concise, and easy to easy to understand.
