Under what circumstances did Napoleon make the China statement? Where is the source to this quote?


  • India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.
    • Hu Shih (Chinese ambassador to the US)
  • Seek for science. Even to China.
  • China is like a sleeping giant. And when she awakes, she shall astonish the world.
  • The Chinese have gained achievements in only 20 years which would take many other countries two centuries to accomplish.
  • China and India have huge populations. There's no reason why they can't emerge as an economic and military superpower in 100 years.
