If wrinkles end up being carved into our foreheads, then the only thing we can do is to make sure that they don’t get ingrained onto our hearts.

Motherhood is a journey of tolerance and wisdom. I, especially, admire some mothers, who build a strong sense of intimacy with their children when they are young and know how to, appropriately, back away after they’ve grown up. Parenthood isn’t a permanent occupation but one of life’s deep affinities. We do not want our children to feel that their childhoods are poor and barren, and we do not want them to feel that their adulthood is suffocating, either.
——Zhao Jie, author 做母亲是一场心胸和智慧的远 行。我钦佩一些母亲，她们在孩子年幼时给予强烈的亲密，又在孩子长大后学会得体地退出。亲子关系不是恒久的占有，而是生命中一场深厚的缘分。我们既不能使孩子感到童年贫瘠，又不能让孩子觉得成年窒息。
I, also, once wasted time and was even reckless to the point of not being afraid to die. But the moment I fell in love with you, I began to wish that I can live to be one hundred.
——Zhu Shenghao, translator
Entrepreneurship is finding discomfort, accustoming oneself to discomfort and treating discomfort as comfort.
——Wang Shi, entrepreneur
Eighteen- year- old guys are proud of their good looks and vigor, that’s youth. If a thirtyyear- old guy says he’s good looking and energetic, that’s idiocy. Even out of the most beautiful girls, who would dare say they are still bewitching by the time they’ve made it to thirty? None. After thirty, all of our youth, dreams and passion have already been concentrated on our pursuits in our careers, lives, futures and contributions to society.
—— Yu Minhong, president of New Oriental Education and Technology Group
