The Beijing Olympics and the Shanghai World Expo show just how much effort China is willing to spend to enter the global stage. But while China desires to understand the world, it fails to accept its universal values. ~ Ai Weiwei
Sadek China quotes by Ai Weiwei
While I was not consulted prior to the President's decision to intervene in support of the Republic of Korea, that decision from a military standpoint, proved a sound one, as we hurled back the invader and decimated his forces. Our victory was complete, and our objectives within reach, when Red China intervened with numerically superior ground forces. ~ Douglas MacArthur
Sadek China quotes by Douglas MacArthur
I've heard it said that if you know English, Spanish, Italian, and I think it's French, you can go just about anywhere in this world ... except for China where they have all those derelicts. ~ Mike Shannon
Sadek China quotes by Mike Shannon
The threat of China is not military. The threat of China is they can't be intimidated. Europe you can intimidate. When the US tries to get people to stop investing in Iran, European companies pull out, China disregards it. You look at history and understand why - they've been around for 4,000 years, they have contempt for the barbarians, they just don't give a damn. ~ Noam Chomsky
Sadek China quotes by Noam Chomsky
Nothing like that. it had more to do with his face. which, although presentable, gave me the feeling that his every expression had been thrown together on the spur of the moment. like mismatched dishes set out in make-do fashion on a party table. ~ Haruki Murakami
Sadek China quotes by Haruki Murakami
Although investors have been concerned with China's slowing growth rate, China remains one of the largest and fastest-growing economies in the world. ~ Mark Mobius
Sadek China quotes by Mark Mobius
If the techs are on it we're fine, but Briamiv and his buddy could fuck up a full stop at the end of a sentence. ~ China Mieville
Sadek China quotes by China Mieville
Soon they'll be saying you're a girl ate what was given her. ~ China Mieville
Sadek China quotes by China Mieville
China no longer has an ideology that makes any sense to them, but what they do have is great pride in the Chinese nation. ~ Evan Osnos
Sadek China quotes by Evan Osnos
What frustrated me was the thought that with three thousand years of history someone in China, some monk in a monastery halfway up a mountain, must have developed a magic kata, a physical expression of formae. Or at least have got close enough to explain all those legendary swordsmen and their inexplicable desire to roost on the tops of bamboo trees. ~ Ben Aaronovitch
Sadek China quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
Lange was hosting a reception at Vogel House for the Chinese politician Hu Yao Bang when the lights went out. Lange immediately asked all the guests to raise their hands because "many hands make light work." The audience complied, and to their amazement the lights immediately came back on. Lange was invited to visit China. ~ David Lange
Sadek China quotes by David Lange
A cursory look at history reveals that propaganda and disinformation are nothing new, and even the habit of denying entire nations and creating fake countries has a long pedigree. In 1931 the Japanese army staged mock attacks on itself to justify its invasion of China, and then created the fake country of Manchukuo to legitimise its conquests. China itself has long denied that Tibet ever existed as an independent country. British settlement in Australia was justified by the legal doctrine of terra nullius ('nobody's land'), which effectively erased 50,000 years of Aboriginal history.
In the early twentieth century a favourite Zionist slogan spoke of the return of 'a people without a land [the Jews] to a land without a people [Palestine]'. The existence of the local Arab population was conveniently ignored. In 1969 Israeli prime minister Golda Meir famously said that there is no Palestinian people and never was. Such views are very common in Israel even today, despite decades of armed conflicts against something that doesn't exist. For example, in February 2016 MP Anat Berko gave a speech in the Israeli Parliament in which she doubted the reality and history of the Palestinian people. Her proof? The letter 'p' does not even exist in Arabic, so how can there be a Palestinian people? (In Arabic, 'f' stands for 'p', and the Arabic name for Palestine is Falastin.) ~ Yuval Noah Harari
Sadek China quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
If God did not exist it would be necessary to invent Him. But all nature cries aloud that He does exist.
(Voltaire) ~ Elizabeth Kales
Sadek China quotes by Elizabeth Kales
What you up to, Isaac? They're so egalitarian ... well ... Their society's all based on maximizing choice for the individual, which is why they're communistic. Grants the most uninhibited choice to everyone. And as far as I remember the only crime they have is depriving another garuda of choice. And then it's exacerbated or mollified depending on whether they do it with or without respect, which they absolutely love ... ~ China Mieville
Sadek China quotes by China Mieville
He washed gold his entire life and remained poor his entire life. ~ Shouhua Qi
Sadek China quotes by Shouhua Qi
He told countless tales, all good, of crocodiles and ichneumons in Egypt, gazelles and ghouls in Persia, elephants and tigers in Burmah, deer and monkeys in Siam, badgers and foxes in China and sorcerers and enchanters everywhere. He spoke of the last two in as matter-of-fact a tone as of any of the others. ~ Edward Lucas White
Sadek China quotes by Edward Lucas White
There is only one China. Taiwan is not independent. It does not enjoy sovereignty as a nation, and that remains our policy, our firm policy. ~ Colin Powell
Sadek China quotes by Colin Powell
It is a very good thing, and a significant one too, to exterminate the bourgeoisie and capitalism in China. ~ Mao Zedong
Sadek China quotes by Mao Zedong
I'm not an outdoor girl. I can barely swim. I don't ride a horse. ~ China Machado
Sadek China quotes by China Machado
To balance China, the democracies will need new friends - and India with its fast-growing economy, youthful population, and democratic politics seems the obvious candidate. ~ David Frum
Sadek China quotes by David Frum
I have no doubt that there will continue to be bumps, some serious crises indeed in our relationship with China ... Neither membership in the WTO nor normalized trade relations with the United States will magically impose the rule of law on China or institute deep-seeded respect for human rights. But it certainly has potential to advance those purposes. ~ Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Sadek China quotes by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
No matter where you go in the world in any country in Africa or Latin America and other place, you will find that China is very deeply involved in the affairs of that country. ~ Jimmy Carter
Sadek China quotes by Jimmy Carter
Everything was burning. Today it was the bodies; tomorrow it would be the spirit. ~ Zhu Xiao-Mei
Sadek China quotes by Zhu Xiao-Mei
America won the Cold War by protecting our strategic resources from the threat of foreign control. We must bring the same attitude to our trade relationship with China. ~ Jo Ann Emerson
Sadek China quotes by Jo Ann Emerson
We know that education is everything to our children's future. We know that they will no longer just compete for good jobs with children from Indiana, but children from India and China and all over the world. ~ Barack Obama
Sadek China quotes by Barack Obama
Simple obviously being in her mind a key word in dealing with overwhelmed and cranky grooms. "Really really simple and neutral." It seemed to be registry protocol that the groom should be allowed to select the casual china (I guess for all those Super Bowl parties I would be hosting with the guys, ha ha) while the "formal ware" should be left to the experts: the ladies. "It's fine," I said, more curtly than I'd meant to, when I realized they were waiting for me to say something. Plain, white, modern earthenware wasn't something I could work up a lot of enthusiasm for, particularly when it went for four hundred dollars a plate. It made me think of the nice old Marimekko-clad ladies I sometimes went to see in the Ritz Tower: gravel-voiced, turban-wearing, panther-braceleted widows looking to move to Miami, ~ Donna Tartt
Sadek China quotes by Donna Tartt
Whether the United States is a hegemon, an indispensable power, or an empire at sunset, and whether China or some other rival stands to take its place, may be a debate that consumes international relations. But its terms are not adapted to a world where power is decaying - where unprecedented forms of fracturing are under way within each of these countries and across systems of trade, investment, migration, and culture. Identifying who is up and who is down is less important than understanding what is going on inside those nations, political movements, corporations, and religions that are on the elevator. Who is up and who is down will matter ever less in a world in which those who get to the top don't stay there for long and are able to do less and less with the power they have while there. ~ Moises Naim
Sadek China quotes by Moises Naim
Isolation means a lack of growth. I grew up in China at a time when the country was completely isolated. That era is over. ~ Zhang Xin
Sadek China quotes by Zhang Xin
If you say that the China Cat might have lost its ear-tips in battle you are the kind of person who always makes difficulties, and you may be quite sure that the kind of splendid magics that happened to Tavy will never happen to you. ~ E. Nesbit
Sadek China quotes by E. Nesbit
Ch'in Shih-huang is the first emperor of China. He united seven separate kingdoms into a single nation. He built the Great Wall and was buried with the terra-cotta soldiers. The Chinese have mixed feelings about him. They're proud of the nation he created, but he was a maniacal tyrant. ~ Gene Luen Yang
Sadek China quotes by Gene Luen Yang
Can you afford to ignore China? It's like saying you can afford to ignore the internet. I don't think so. ~ Richard Branson
Sadek China quotes by Richard Branson
But just then, as if to avoid a certain awkwardness, Seaman began to talk not about Newell but about Newell's mother, Anne Jordan Newell. He described her appearance (pleasing), her work (she had a job at a factory that made irrigation systems), her faith (she went to church every Sunday), her industriousness (she kept the house as neat as a pin), her kindness (she always had a smile for everyone), her common sense (she gave good advice, wise advice, without forcing it on anyone). A mother is a precious thing, concluded Seaman. Marius and I founded the Panthers. We worked whatever jobs we could get and we bought shotguns and handguns for the people's self-defense. But a mother is worth more than the Black Revolution. That I can promise you. In my long and eventful life, I've seen many things. I was in Algeria and I was in China and in several prisons in the United States. A mother is a precious thing. This I say here and I'll say anywhere, anytime, he said in a hoarse voice. ~ Roberto Bolano
