Dr Lui's Aphorisms during the New Book Sharing Session

"Many people have asked me how to seize opportunities when they arise. In fact, I always observe the needs of the society. I am eager to learn things that I have no knowledge about them and would consult other people for more ideas. Indeed, we also need other people’s help to bring success. Hence, we should dedicate a lot of efforts in the beginning to cultivate relationships. And integrity is therefore very important."

"I hope the biography can help readers better understand an individual’s life experience in order to deepen their understanding of the society. Striving in the commercial field for more than 70 years, I have encountered many difficult times, but whatever challenges come my way, I always face them by staying calm and optimistic. I think inner peace of mind is invaluable."
