One is from Najib Mahfuz, I took this sentence from his book Children of the Alley, he won the Nobel Prize for literature in Oct 1988. It's a great book, trust me. As I read the Chinese vision, i have to translate it in English, there would be some mistakes.
"Work for yourself, as you are going to live forever; work for others, as you are going to die tomorrow."
Another is from movie Precious.
"Some folks got a light around them that shine for other people. I think maybe some of them was in tunnels, and in that tunnel, maybe the only light they had was inside of them. and then, even long after they escaped that tunnel, they still be shinning for everybody else."
There are a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people's eyes. What have you read from these sentence? I have read different require of ourselves and other people.I have read help and love. And the all works that we are doing need our faith and persistence. hope you will like these words.
