The People I Look Up To 我的人生榜樣

The following are people whom I admire and look up to for inspiration and positive examples for living my life.  Not in any particular order.

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple

Why I Admire Steve Jobs:

  • Steve’s strength and perseverance in overcoming the many setbacks and adversities to build Apple into the great company that it is today.  Without Steve, Apple may be gone and the world will not have the iconic iMac, iPod, and the iPhone and iPad.
  • His poise in public speaking and presentations and solid sense of fashion.

“You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”

    Watch Steve speak to graduates at the 2005 Stanford University commencement.

    Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States

    Why I Admire Abraham Lincoln:

    • Born into poverty and with very little formal education, I admire his determination to self-educate and overcoming his humble beginnings.  He led the United States through the Civil War, probably the toughest time in the history of the nation.




    Siddhārtha Gautama, founder of Buddhism

    Why I Admire Siddhārtha Gautama:

    • Siddhārtha’s courage in giving up a life of comfortable luxury, indulgence, and royal power in search of spiritual truth: the answer to mankind’s suffering and a way to liberation and end that suffering.
    • Finding the ultimate answer and sharing it without reservation.





    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Composer

    Why I Admire Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:

    • An Austrian child prodigy, Mozart’s immortal musical compositions never fail to uplift and lighten a blue moment.





    Samuel "Mark Twain" Clemens, Author

    Why I Admire Mark Twain:

    • The “father of American literature”, his characters, such as Huckleberry Finn in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn embody the spirit of America.   I read the unforgettable The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in high school inspiring me not to take life too seriously.

    Finally, A Fictional Character:

    Image of Atticus Finch coming soon.

    Why I Admire Atticus Finch:

    The righteous lawyer appointed to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman in the American South, the character from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is my moral example of the highest regard.
