"Finally, she mused that human existence is as brief as the life of autumn grass, so what was there to fear from taking chances with your life?" - Mo Yan

"Mo Yan is a Chinese novelist who was forced to leave school and work as a farmer when he was only 11 years old, thanks to the onset of the Cultural Revolution. Despite this setback, he began writing his own stories ten years later while serving as a solider in the People's Liberation Army."
