“人会长大三次。第一次是在发现自己不是世界中心的时候。第二次是在发现即使再怎么努力,终究还是有些事令人无能为力的时候。第三次是在,明知道有些事可能会无能为力,但还是会尽力争取的时候。”‐‐‐Anonymous

“You would experience three times of growth in your life: The first growth occurs when you realize that you are not in the center of the world.  The second growth is when you find there could be situations in which you feel helpless after trying all your best. The third growth occurs when you realize that you must make all the possible efforts even you find yourself in that kind of severe situation.”
