It's been 26 years already. Have I done enough?

Dear Heaven...
Give me the courage to move on,
Grant me the wisdom to understand,
Lead me the way towards a better me; for my family, my friends, my patients, my ancestors, my country and the strangers.

Yours truly.

Words of Wisdom

Me: Boss, there are many things easier than this. Why are you keep going the harder way?

Boss: It's not about how successful I want to be, it's a matter of doing it the right way. Even Confucius never had high rank, because there's no compromise. Faced with what is right, to leave it undone shows a lack of courage. So yeah, I will still choose the harder way around.
