    Default An Open Letter

    Dear Amos,

    我勸你遠走高飛,
    洗心革面做好人,
    否則下場會很可悲。

    are you serious?

    this generation only believe in "YOLO" (you only live once)

    and this kiddo is just a classic example, he is so happy to get all the attentions he had long seeking,
    so you want ask him to turn over a new leaf, he will just tell you back, over my dead body!

    They also believe in 今生积德,来世就有福报 and reincarnation.

    I like the Ancient Egyptian version myself...Confucius all right too

    I didn't use Google...Firefox instead...took me a while to figure it out...

    "Those who are born with the possession of knowledge are the highest class of men. Those who learn, and so, readily, get possession of knowledge, are the next. Those who are dull and stupid, and yet compass the learning, are another class next to these. As to those who are dull and stupid and yet do not learn - they are the lowest of the people." Confucius

    Thanks Sion!
