Modernize Quotations

Look, the whole world wants to modernize, and when you look to what they mean by modernizing, they mean Americanize. Would a modern Greek prefer to live in Orange County than Piraeus? Yes. Absolutely.

I love old architecture. I love collecting furniture, mixing really earthy things with the very polished. I don't come from an interiors background, so I'm not an expert. I just enjoy going to antiques shows and finding interesting things. I'm really into beautifully made things, like hand-carved wood, and I want to figure out how to modernize it.
Jason Wu

China is not like the West, and it will not become like the West.
