Putting admirable rationales of university education into practice is never easy. While it is popular to emphasize market values and competitive rankings, moral values and ideals sound way too lofty nowadays. Under tensions on campus and in society, the head of a university takes the role of striking a balance as skilfully as possible. Professor Joseph Sung is no exception to all these challenges. He has been enjoying university life with teachers and students, going through ups and downs with them. This book, a collection of 57 blog articles by Professor Sung during his tenure as the seventh Vice-Chancellor of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, tells us the stories. He talks about higher education and social responsibility, pathways and choices our youths make, the visions he had and the challenges he faced, and life values which he wishes his students could take seriously. Though generations come and go, he still cares that they live a simple, noble and humble life. He hopes we care too.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I am deeply moved by Dr. Sung's words, thoughts, emotions, aspirations, and the way he lives as a physician and educator. I trust that this book will reach the soul of young people and the people who care for youth.--Philemon Yuen-wan Choi, Breakthrough Ltd.
As I pored over Prof. Sung's words, I often thought of the line, "Remembered in the students, remembered through education." The vignettes in this book serve to a certain extent to confirm my view.--Po-chung Chow, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
