from Professor Yuan Tseh Lee, 1986 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
"I learned that life is very precious, life is limited and so you have to work hard to have a meaningful life. I made up my mind to become a scientist and do something useful for the society. That was my first wish. The second wish was that I should find many friends who have the same lofty idealism to transform a very nonideal society to a fair and equitable one. That was the conclusion I obtained when I recovered from illness after one month. When I started to go to school again, I stopped doing competitive sports anymore and also gave up the brass band. In a word, I decided to become a scholar, to be a scientist and to be a philosopher. But, more importantly I determined to be the master of my own. Control my own destiny and not to be bound by the prevailing conditions of the society at that time. It was the time when I started to learn things very seriously."
