    In my despondency, I often wished I had never been educated, as education had unmistakably enlarged my mental and moral horizon, and revealed to me responsibilities which sealed eye of ignorance can never see, and sufferings and wrongs of humanity to which an uncultivated and callous nature and can never be made sensitive. The more one knows, the more he suffers and is consequently less happy; the less one knows, the less he suffers, and hence is more happy. But this is a low view of life, a cowardly feeling and unworthy of a being bearing the impress of divinity.
    The content above really accurately described how painful those knowledgeable and ambitious but unable to accomplish their objects people were. We all hope for the world where we can express ourselves and the whole world has adequate patience to listen to every voice.

    I myself began to think I was too mercurial to accomplish anything substantial, or that I was too dreamy to be practical or too proud to succeed in life. But in a strenuous life one needs to be a dreamer in order to accomplish possibilities. We are not called into being simply to drudge for an animal existence.

    The overland transport trade between the two cities, and supported a large population along both sides of the thoroughfare. Steam, wars and treaties of very recent dates have not only broken up this system of labor and changed the complexion of the whole labor question throughout China, but will also alter the economical, industrial and political conditions of the Chinese Empire during the coming years of her history.
    The China underneath the pen of Rong was so worrying and frustrating, but also promising in meeting new challenges, just due to the inefficient organization.

    The port of Hankau had not been opened for foreign trade, though it was well understood that it was to be opened very soon.

    It has been an immemorial custom, adopted by almost every dynasty, that the people should go to the country. When a city is captured or taken, it is easy to subjugate the surrounding country.
    I could not agree more. In fact, the existence and the ultimate victory of a certain regime is a miracle and coincidence.

    Tsang, as a statesman, a patriest, and as a man, towered over his contemoiraries even as Mount Everest rises above the surrounding heights of the Himalaya range, forever resting in undisturbed calmness and crowned with the purity of everlasting snow.
    Quite moving and amazing. But such complement to Tsang is not surprising.

    But to the disinterested spectator and unprejudiced judge, Kwan Su was no imbecile, much less a dement. Impartial history and posterity will pronounce him not only a patriot emperor, but also a patriot reformer-as mentally sound and sane as any emperor who ever sat on the throne of China.
    载湉九泉之下可暝目矣。
