One important guiding principle as parents: Do not make the child’s life easy

“儿孙能如我,何必留多财,
倘若不如我,多财亦是空,
不为自己求利益,但愿大众共安宁”。
~郭鹤年 (Robert Kuok) 母亲

If the children and grandchildren can be like me, then they require not of material inheritance;
If the children and grandchildren are not like myself, then of what use is my wealth to them?
Do not seek personal interests but peace for all
