About Serving Spirits And About Death

Jilu asked about the worship of gods and spirits.
Confucius said, " We don't know yet how to serve men, how can we know about serving the spirits?"
"What about death?" was the next question,
And Confucius said, "We don't know yet about life, how can we know about death?"
