There is a Chinese saying, sacrifice the "small" me, for the completion of the "big" me, or sacrifice oneself for the sake of the whole.

Using it to describe what some great people have done is fine. However, when we ourselves try to do it, the word "sacrifice" has a deterrence factor. Rather, if we were to expand our "self" to embrace more entities, thus becoming the "big" me or even the whole, then our natural instinct of survivor will be to live for the sake of the whole.

Insights from reading the book "A Bald Head and A Strawberry."
