"Life bears a close similarity to the moon's phases. As the moon waxes and wanes, life also has ups and downs. In this regard, everyone is walking on the same life path. Although one cannot choose his destiny, we can look at life from different angles: paying greater attention to what life gives to you rather than what it takes from you, and facing difficulties with a tough and grateful heart," Tai said.
