“The stars are scattered all over the sky like shimmering tears, there must be great pain in the eye from which they trickled.”
—Georg Büchner (18131837)
“In a country where misery and want were the foundation of the social structure, famine was periodic, death from starvation common, disease pervasive, thievery normal, and graft and corruption taken for granted, the elimination of these conditions in Communist China is so striking that negative aspects of the new rule fade in relative importance.”
—Barbara Tuchman (19121989)
