Finally, he is a poet.
Dr. Chen says he would rather be known as apoet than an entrepreneur. In the eyes of his artistic friends, he is anoptimistic and romantic poet, which has earned him the name “Ice Wanderer”. Hehas written, “Hold the moon over the lake for a thousand years, and bury thesunset in the mountains forever. The 800 years of Pengzu passed in an instant,so who are we to have a different fate?” Also, “In heaven and earth, all thingsare only temporary lodgings, hundreds of years pass away.” Someday, everyonewill get old, but his or her life’s work will last for centuries. To thesublime beauty of this dream, Dr. Chen has been striving relentlessly.
Just as the bestpencils come from the oldest trees and the most beautiful pictures are of theendless skies, natural leaders are timeless and everlasting. This is the trueessence of Mr. Chen.
