Although restricted by his handicap, Homer Lea developed desires for personal success and fame, the same as what countless people experience in social and literary circles. From his past, Homer learned in his early life the obstacles, challenges, and uncertain future which were likely to come from his physical deformity, which he sooner overcame. Despite his infirmity, his clever mind and steadfast determination led him to happiness. Instead of playing sports, Homer focused his attention on toy soldiers which led him to become well-versed in military issues and this was a contributing factor in him becoming an authority in Chinese military issues. Moreover, Homer's interest in China was further sparked through the influence of a local Chinese missionary friend of his parents. To develop his interest in China even further, he attended Occidental courses which taught him different things about China.
