analects (AN-uh-lekts) also analecta (an-uh-LEK-tuh) plural noun
Selections from or parts of a literary work or group of works. Often used as a title.
[Greek analekta, selected things, from neuter plural of analektos, gathered together, from analegein, to gather : ana- + legein, to gather.]
"The Confucian Analects are endlessly reinterpreted: the sage must have turned over in his grave several times over because of the liberties taken in his name."
