Quotes
The following are related quotes:

Chinese geniuses are extremely scarce; that is a fact. In the past 2500 years, there were only two instances of spontaneous progress: one happened in ancient Greece; the other in Renaissance Italy. If western powers had not come to contact with China in mid 19th century, China today would not have been much different from the China of 210 BC. Ming dynasty (1368-1644 AD) fortified and extended the Great Wall built by Qin dynasty (221 to 206 BC), from which one can infer how much progress had taken place both in technology and in mental life over the intervening centuries.”
