Shanghai Quotations

The primary school I attended in Shanghai was a very liberal one, established by scholars who had return from an education in France. The children of leading families were enrolled there, including the son of a well-known man believed to be a top gangster of the underworld!
Charles K. Kao

The surrealists, and the modern movement in painting as a whole, seemed to offer a key to the strange postwar world with its threat of nuclear war. The dislocations and ambiguities, in cubism and abstract art as well as the surrealists, reminded me of my childhood in Shanghai.
J. G. Ballard

New York may be the city that never sleeps, but Shanghai doesn't even sit down, and not just because there is no room.
Patricia Marx

The rise or fall of Shanghai means the birth or death of the whole nation.
Chiang Kai-shek

This rise of the new global mega-rich is happening as established institutions are falling.

Robert Kiyosaki
