■ Message
There is an old Chinese proverb saying that "以不变应万变", which literally means “meet all changes by remaining unchanged”. We live in a world where things are changing so rapidly that virtually nobody could possibly follow all of them. The wise way is to acquire an “all-purpose ability” that enables you to cope with all kinds of situation or need. That is the ability to think and act on your own. I hope you will master this "all-purpose ability" at APU.
