I recently received, in a roundabout way, an e-mail containing a speech to graduating students in Singapore, given by Adrian Tan, a lawyer and author. (He wrote the novel, The Teenage Textbook, which was not only a stunning bestseller in Asia, but was also made into a hit movie and a successful play. So he may be the sole reason why Singaporean teenagers are so well behaved and studious today.)
In any case, I now intend to blatantly steal from Mr. Tan's speech.
