Great deeds are done every single second, somewhere near or somewhere very distant. From the generous donations made to the less fortunate to the teenager sacrificing his pleasure by offering his/her seat in the MTR train to an elderly person, love and the desire to love others can be clearly seen. Without the elements of love and the desire to love, actions will remain meaningless as they will not portray the greatness of one’s personality and character. Only a deed done with authentic love, care, and desire can be elevated to the position of being identified as a ‘great deed’.

每一秒都有偉大的壯舉,它離我們或遠或近。從為不幸的人們慷慨捐贈,到年輕人在地鐵上為老人讓座。在這些善意的舉動中,關愛他人的愛心與願望清晰可見。如果我們失去了愛與心願,所有的舉動就會失去意義,因為它們將不再描繪出品格和人性的偉大。只有滿懷真摯的愛意、關懷和心願,所謂「偉大的壯舉」才會名副其實,昇華至真正的「偉大」。
