My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. "In essentials, unity; in other things, liberty; in all things, charity." (slightly revised from Richard Baxter)
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. In speaking, Paul: "uh," "you know"; Shou-Ching: "dumb," "ridiculous," "great," "awesome."
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Paul: reading. Shou-Ching: interior and landscape/garden design.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. If this could be a fantasy superpower, maybe something that could be called "teleteros" -- the power to observe molecules and cells at work in the mind's eye -- this would speed up science and medical diagnosis! Of normal human talents, Shou-Ching would like to play the piano; Paul would like to be able to sing along.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness is our ultimate end: a communion of saints who love
one another intimately and cooperatively; who are all secure in the
knowledge that, in their mutual giving and receiving, they give and
receive only good things.
For us today, our greatest happiness comes from a truth uncovered, an insight shared that brightens a life with hope and better health. More than through any other activity, we find happiness interacting with our readers on our blog.
