To my graduating class

After graduation, it might be likely that you lead a terribly mundane life in order to put bread on the table. No matter what happens, do not forget your passion, and always keep your curiosity and enthusiasm going for the people, things and knowledge around you. Knowing that the world’s expectations and values might be different from yours, never despair. Keep looking for your own values and meanings in life, other than what is commonly defined as success. Do not blindly follow the conventions and so-called norms of the society. Stay humble, and refrain from passing casual judgements on things and people. Embrace everything around you with an open heart and an open mind.

寄語畢業班同學
當您們畢業後面對著可能是營營役役的生活、為口奔馳的同時,不要忘記您們心中那團火,時刻保持對身邊各種人、事和知識的好奇與熱誠。懂得在世俗的期望和價值觀下,堅持不懈,不斷去尋找在大眾對所謂「成功」的定義以外的自身價值和意義。不要盲目接受社會約定俗成的規律,保持謙遜的心,以寬廣的心待人處事,不要對人或事莽下判斷。
