Some Inspirational Quotes from Mao Zedong in light of Taiwan's Landslide Election

  • 'The nature of the people of the country is inertia; they worship hypocrisy, are content with being slaves and narrow-minded'

  • 'I do not agree with the view that to be moral, the motives of one's actions has to be benefiting of others. Morality does not have to be defined in relation to others. People like me want to satisfy our hearts to the full and in doing so we automatically have the most valuable moral codes. Of course, there are people and objects in the world, but they are all there only for me.'

  • 'People like me only have a duty to ourselves. We have no duty to other people. I'm responsible only for the reality that I know, and absolutely not responsible for anything else. I don't know about the past, I don't know about the future. They have nothing to do with the reality of my own self.'

  • 'Some say one has a responsibility for history. I don't believe it. I am only concerned about developing myself. I have my desire and act on it. I am responsible to no-one.'

  • 'A good name after death cannot bring me any joy because it belongs to the future, and not my own reality. People like me are not building achievements to leave for future generations'

  • 'These two (impulses, conscience) should be one and the same. All our actions are driven by impulse, and a conscience that is wise will go along with this in every instance. Sometimes conscience restrains impulses (such as overeating and over-indulgence in sex), but conscience is only there to restrain, not oppose, and restraint is for better completion of the impulse, as conscience always implies some concern for other people. I do not think these commands (do not kill, do not steal, do not slander) have to do with conscience. I think they're only out of self-interest for self-preservation. All considerations must be purely calculation of oneself and absolutely not for obeying external ethical codes or for so-called 'feelings of responsibility'

  • 'To distribute resources evenly will only ruin the Great Leap Forward. When there is not enough to eat, people starve to death. It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill'
