Results from Michael Moncur's (Cynical) Quotations:

I'm astounded by people who want to 'know' the universe when it's hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.
Woody Allen (1935 - )

Results from Classic Quotes:

Deus ex machina [A god from the machine]
Menander (342 BC - 292 BC), The Woman Possessed with a Divinity
Glass, china, and reputation are easily cracked, and never well mended.
Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
We want God to come and save us. But he won’t. God doesn’t stop levees from failing, he doesn’t stay the force of tsunamis, and he doesn’t stop planes from smashing into buildings. Deus Ex Machina is overrated.
Waiter Rant, Waiter Rant weblog, 09-09-05
Perhaps one has to be very old before one learns how to be amused rather than shocked.
Pearl S. Buck, China, Past and Present, 1972
China now, put on $250 billion, and they’re paying 25 percent on that. They’re paying billions and billions -- this has never happened to China, and I like China and I like President Xi a lot. I think he’s a friend of mine, he may not be a friend of mine anymore, but I think he probably respects -- from what I hear, if you look at Mr. Pillsbury, the leading authority on China. He was on a good show, I won’t mention the name of the show, recently, and he was saying that China has total respect for Donald Trump and for Donald Trump’s very, very large brain.
Donald Trump (1946 - ), Press Conference, September 26, 2018

Results from Rand Lindsly's Quotations:

There are a billion people in China. It's not easy to be an individual in a crowd of more than a billion people. Think of it. More than a BILLION people. That means even if you're a one-in-a-million type of guy, there are still a thousand guys exactly like you."
A. Whitney Brown, "The Big Picture"
[On recognizing China] But if you recognize anyone it does not mean you like them. For instance, we all recognize the right honourable gentleman the member for Ebbw Vale.
Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

Results from Poor Man's College:

For centuries now we've tried everything else; the power of wealth, of mighty armies and navies, machinations of diplomats. All have failed. Before it's too late, and time is running out, let us turn from trust in the chain reactions of exploding atoms to faith of the chain reaction of God's love. Love - love of God and fellow men. That is God's formula for peace. Peace on earth to men of good will.
Richard Cardinal Cushing
