When I was young and free my imagination had no limits, I dreamed I could change the world.

As I grew older and wiser, I realised the world would not change. And I decided to shorten my sights somewhat and change only my country. But it seemed immovable.

As I entered my twighlight years, in one last desperate attempt, I sought to change only my family, those closest to me; but alas they would have none of it.

And now here I lie in my death bed and realise, perhaps for the first time, that if only I had changed myself first then, by example, I may have influenced my family and with their encouragement and support I may have bettered my country, and who knows, I may have changed the world.

當我躺在牀上,行將就木時,我突然意識到: 如果一開始我僅僅去改變我自己,然後作爲一個榜樣,我可能改變我的家庭;在家人的幫助和鼓勵下,我可能爲國家做一些事情。然後誰知道呢?我甚至可能改變這個世界。
