From a Chinese

Today's Maurin

A Chinese says: I thought I had become westernized but now I am becoming repatriated.

The material progress of America has dazzled me.

I wished while there to transplant what I saw to China.

But now that I am home again I see that our two civilizations have irreconcilable differences.

Yours is a machine civilization; ours is a handicraft civilization.

Your people work in factories; our people work in shops.

Your people produce quality things that are alike.

Our people produce quality things that are different.
