Today I would like to say a few words to mark the completion of your campus life here at SNU, and also to celebrate a new beginning of our friendship.

First of all, I would like to say millions of thanks to all of you for your understanding, support and encouragement you have rendered me during the past few years. I am far from an excellent teacher, but you have shown your support by attending my class regularly, answering questions actively and offering suggestions unsparingly. Whenever I am in low spirits, your encouraging eyes and smiling faces cheer me up. Whenever I am in need of assistance, you are always willingly lending me a helping hand. Thank you, thank you ask for what you have done for me.

Here I would like to share with you a comment made by a famous professor concerning the problems the younger generation has in common. The original version is
To put it roughly into English: we are neither appreciative of others nor content with the state of affairs; neither do we treasure what we have, nor do we practice self-discipline. Probably, we need to bear this statement in mind. Do not forget to express your appreciation to your parents and friends. Tray to complain less, and be brave enough to acknowledge that the world is imperfect. Be sure that we can make a difference. Self-discipline is of vital importance. Remember once you sin, you will feel guilty all you life.

Be ambitious. be aggressive. Do not be afraid to voice your objectives. Do not be hesitant to display your talents in the presence of others. Be brave. be confident enough to admit your own weakness. If there is a hero in the world, that hero is no one but you.

Finally, I wish you all success and love.
