Sivu 121 - ... that no one since then has staked his reputation on such enterprises ? Tso Tsung-t'ang established a naval school in Fukien and foreign cloth mills in Kansuh. Shen Wen-shu also established schools, and, conjointly with the Viceroys at Tientsin and Nanking, floated the China Merchants' Steam Navi* The T'ung Wen College, or College of Combined Literature, was established in 1869 at Peking by the Chinese Government. Its prime object is to train young men for the public service, especially as agents...
Sivu 72 - Assuredly it is not foreign intercourse that is ruining China, but this dreadful poison. Oh, the grief and desolation it has wrought to our people ! A hundred years ago the curse came upon us more blasting and deadly in its effects than the Great Flood or the scourge of the Fierce Beasts, for the waters assuaged after nine years, and the ravages of the man-eaters were confined to one place. Opium has spread with frightful rapidity and heart-rending results through the provinces. Millions upon millions...
Sivu 95 - When Heaven is about to confer a great office on any man, it first exercises his mind with suffering, and his sinews and bones with toil. It exposes his body to hunger, and subjects him to extreme poverty. It confounds his undertakings. By all these methods it stimulates his mind, hardens his nature, and remedies his incompetencies.
Sivu 143 - We have never heard of International Law controlling the issues of war between unequal States. To-day the countries of the world are in close and mutual intercourse; but the relations of the smaller States to the greater are entirely different from those which exist between the States of equal power. China is not on an equal footing with the West. This is perceived in the fact that the duty on imports is fixed by Western Governments. Not so in China. Merchants engaged in business abroad are subject...
Sivu 138 - To sum up: Chinese learning is moral, Western learning is practical. Chinese learning concerns itself with moral conduct, Western learning, with the affairs of the world. . . If the Chinese heart throbs in unison with the heart of the sages, expressing the truth in irreprovable conduct, in filial piety, brotherly love, honesty, integrity, virtue; if government is loyalty and protection, then let government make use of foreign machinery and the railway from morning to night, and nothing untowards...
Sivu 20 - The present condition of things is not due to outside nations, but to China herself. It has ever been true that the number of our able men has been proportioned to the good qualities of the government, and that morals are gauged by the conduct of the schools. In view of many facts, and with the hope of relieving...
Sivu 128 - China does not introduce them we will remain isolated from the rest of the world. While others are travelling with facility to the sea-coast, we will be sitting, bound and paralyzed, in the house! How can the people of our Flowery Inner Land progress or even exist without Railways ? CHAPTER IX COMPARATIVE STUDY THE Book of Changes employs the word t'ung a great many times. Its meaning may be defined as the true delight in profound study with the mind ever alert to fathom the depths of learning. Its...
Sivu 26 - ... What grand results would follow if each household, each village, and each institution of learning in the Empire, would discountenance the use of opium ! Then would the winter of our distress be made glorious summer by the coming of better times for China. "Now is the time for action. Confucius says, 'Know what shame is and you will not be far from heroism...
Sivu 73 - The ruin of the mind is the most woful of its many deleterious effects. The poison enfeebles the will, saps the strength of the body, renders the consumer incapable of performing his regular duties, and unfit for travel from one place to another. It consumes his substance and reduces the miserable wretch to poverty, barrenness, and senility. Unless something is soon done to arrest this awful scourge in its devastating march, the Chinese people will be transformed into satyrs and devils ! This is...
Sivu 63 - In order to render China powerful, and at the same time preserve our own institutions, it is absolutely necessary that we should utilize western knowledge. But unless Chinese learning is made the basis of education, and a Chinese direction given to thought, the strong will become anarchists, and the weak, slaves.
