Bon mot for the week

"To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else."

This seems a particularly appropriate thought to carry into this week, something to remember whenever you hear Chinese people (or foreign commentators on China) suggesting that they'd really rather have 'stability' and 'prosperity' in China than respect for humanity, accountable government, and the rule of law.
