A gentleman's delights ... Afternoon Delights
Lucio lives by the saying of Chinese philosopher Mencius: "A gentleman delights in three things, and to rule the world is not one of these three things. For one's parents to be both alive, and for one's brothers to have no misfortune, that is the first delight. To look up and see Heaven without shame, that is the second delight. To obtain the world's talented people and educate them, that is the third delight."
Who is Lucio Tan? He was born on July 17, 1934 in Amoy, Fujian Province in what is now the People's Republic of China. Dr. Lu Kun Chen, two years older than he, remembers him from the boat ride that brought the two of them to the Philippines as children. Three high school friends - Tina Enriquez, Larry Uy and Robin Sy - contributed to the book.
