"The Greatest Sage and Teacher of China" -- Confucius (B.C. 551-479) Dr. Bosart to me Once a teacher, for life a father-figure ( 一日為師，終身為父 ) 14 Influenced My Life the Most
15 Overall Through Dr. Bosart’s loving teaching in all aspects, I have gained precious wisdom,which tremendously influenced my life, either in academic achievement or in personal characters. Never will I forget the kindnesses, patience, and love that he cultivated in my heart, so I may harvest the abundant fruit in my life today. Hardly, could I put down my gratitude in word, and all I could say is “Thank you so much Dr. Bosart”
16 He is so happy with students’ decoration on his office door for his 70 th birthday on 24 August 2012.
