Interesting Times (Quote)

“It is not so long ago that a member of the Diplomatic Body in London, who had spent some years of his service in China, told me that there was a Chinese curse which took the form of saying "May you live in interesting times. ’There is no doubt that the curse has fallen on us.”


  • Sir Austen Chamberlain, 1936
