I believe in the greatness of our democracy.
I believe in the greatness of our people.
We must teach our people the greatness of China's historical culture.

A part of me looks at life from a dismal perspective, not unlike Woody Allen and Larry David. But I don't want to look at life like that. It's bad enough that I have to think it.
