Famous quotes containing the word chiang:

    Every clique is a refuge for incompetence. It fosters corruption and disloyalty, it begets cowardice, and consequently is a burden upon and a drawback to the progress of the country. Its instincts and actions are those of the pack.
    —Madame Chiang Kai-Shek (b. 1898)
