Li Shifu says:
I do not want to advertise myself, I am only a beggar. Being alive, I am already very grateful to the Gods. I look indifferently at fame, wealth, honors and glory. Out of 7 billion people in the entire world how many people could one have a destiny to meet with? This certainly must be predestined relationship as vast as the heavens. If students learn the imparted content well, apply it well, and are capable of helping other people I am already utterly happy.
