"Have good principles and conduct yourself honourably"
This is an excerpt from the eulogy given by Li Hong Yi, grandson of Lee Kuan Yew.
I particularly like this excerpt.
Sometimes I am a coward at work. Not daring to speak up, not daring to verbalise my opinion when I feel someone is not doing right. I will not be this kind of person anymore. I will keep to my principles and hold my head high. I will not concern myself about not being polite, about being afraid that I will offend others. Life, after all is not worth all these little actions that waste time and are not fruitful. Be true to yourself, that is more fulfilling. If you are a honourable person, there is nothing to worry about.
