A turn of the screw
There was an industrialist whose production line inexplicably breaks down, costing him millions per day. He finally tracks down an expert who takes out a screwdriver, turns one screw, and then - as the factory cranks back to life - presents a bill for £10,000.
Affronted, the factory owner demands an itemised version. The expert is happy to oblige: "For turning a screw: £1. For knowing which screw to turn: £9,999."
The moral of the story is we make a profit from our knowledge that most people do not know.

I wanted to change the world
When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.
I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.
When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.

一个国家会跟着时代的变化、科技的创新，而发展； 一个社团会因为大家的团结、累积的力量，而扩大； 一个人也会因为面对的困难、前进的动力，而成长。 面对、前进、成长 一直在我们的人生里循环着。 。。。 我们一定行！
“design and build” 创造然后再创造，然后是不停地创造。 这就是工程师可怕的地方。
