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.”⁣⁣⁣
