"Now I understand Lu Xun," a Weibo user comments on Li Wenliang's death, quoting:

"Speak up if you can. Generate a little heat, emit a little light, like a firefly flickering in the dark. There is no need to wait for the torch.

If the torch never comes, I’ll be the light." pic.twitter.com/KvJIDyLuGL
