Sun Yat-sen
China is now suffering from poverty, not from unequal distribution of wealth. Where there are inequalities of wealth, the methods of Marx can, of course, be used; a class war can be advocated to destroy the inequalities. But in China, where industry is not yet developed, Marx's class war and dictatorship of the proletariat are impracticable.
Yat-sen quotes
It is only after mature deliberation and thorough preparation that I have decided upon the Program of Revolution and defined the procedure of the revolution in three stages. The first is the period of military government; the second, the period of political tutelage; and the third, the period of constitutional government.
In the construction of a country, it is not the practical workers but the idealists and planners that are difficult to find.

Yat-sen Sun quotes
Only powerful people have liberty.
Yat-sen Sun
To understand is difficult; to act is easy.
Sun Yat-sen quotes
The Chinese people have only family and clan solidarity; they do not have national spirit...they are just a heap of loose sand...Other men are the carving knife and serving dish; we are the fish and the meat.
