“No, I think it would be arrogant to say that the Chinese people are copying. I think it’s about learning and learning means that you are taking the existing and you’re playing with it, and that’s exactly what the Chinese are doing. But the arrogance and the point of view of the old world, the Europeans, the Australians, the Americans is Chinese are copying. They don’t understand that they are preparing themselves for the next stage which is being innovative. The attitude here is a completely different one because they are still hungry, they are still foolish, they are still childish and we are not. Look at Europe, we are messed up. You know why we are messed up? Because we are not hungry anymore. You have everything, you are not fighting anymore. The Chinese will rule the world because they have the exact attitude that we do not have anymore, that’s the huge problem. You won’t understand it if you are looking at the world from the point of view of the old world which is Europe, US and all the other guys, and that’s a fact. If you understand that, you can learn a lot of things and can see where China is developing itself and you are going with it, you could be part of it and I swear to god China will dominate the world in terms of having the most innovative companies. It’s a matter of time, they can enjoy the pain. You’re not interested in enjoying the pain anymore. Why? Europe, we have everything, let’s make party every night. While we are making party, they are working hard. It’s the history of the human beings since the beginning, it was always like that. What is also very very arrogant from the point of view of the old world is they think that China was not existing 50 years ago and if you look at the history of China, its 5000 years old. They were dominating the world 5 times already, so they will do it again. Respect it and understand it then you can be part of it. If you don’t get it then you’re part of the old world and you will disappear and it’s happening now. Looks at what is going on in Europe at the moment and in the US, it’s not a financial crisis, it’s a system crisis. It’s true, look at Europe, it’s done. If you look at Spain for example over 50% of youth unemployment in Spain and I’m talking about people who are highly educated and they are leaving the country because they don’t have any kind of future anymore. So it’s really dangerous, but maybe that’s the story of human beings, I don’t know.”—The People Of China’s Ad Industry: Amir Kassaei

“From his glory days with Milan, where he was twice Italy’s top scorer, to his steep fall with Chelsea, where he was the original Fernando Torres and cost a then British record £30 million for three years of belittling jokes, Sheva has always carried himself with a gentle dignity. For the last three years, his career has quietly kept on where it first started, Dynamo Kiev.”—Andriy Shevchenko: The name to remember from day four of Euro 2012
