When you feel fear, father is a stepping stone; In the darkness, father’s love is a lamp; when you feel exhausted, father is a bay water for life; when you are hard working, father is the spiritual pillar; when you are successful, father is to encourage and alarm. - Liang Fengyi, a famous writer in Hongkong
