“我记得我要放弃的时候,我的恩师郭宝崑他跟我说了一番话,他说:“你觉得我从来都没有想过放弃吗?我每天晚上都想要放弃,但是我每天早上都从新做一个决定,我要继续走下去。“我的老师还在天上看着我。我只想跟老师你说我会继续走下去,谢谢你。⁣⁣⁣

I remember when I felt like giving up, my teacher Kuo Pao Kun said this to me, he said "Do you think I never thought of giving up? I feel like giving up every night, but I make a new resolution every morning—I want to go on. My teacher is watching me from the skies. I just want to tell him that I will go on. Thank you.”⁣⁣⁣
