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!

....this generation only believe in "YOLO" (you only live once)
They also believe in 今生积德,来世就有福报 and reincarnation.

But 阿魔 won't return.

Studied in Zhonghua, his Chinese standard won't be that bad lar
仁者不忧,知者不惑,勇者不惧。

Don't think he gets his inspiration from 孔子. :)

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! :)

Amos seems to think so...except for 'authority' which can take many shapes...including one's Father and Mother. Geez kid born knowing everything?..just remember they will run the show someday...our job is to help as best we know how... 孔子 sound instruction to guide us IMHO
