"You must eat the cold porridge", he told me once.
It's a Chinese expression. Cantonese, i guess, because although he carried an old-fashioned blue British passport and was happy to call himself an Englishman, he was born in Hong Kong and sometimes you could tell that all the important things he belived were formed long ago and far away. Like the importance of eating the cold porridge.
