Great quotes about Hong Kong culture
The wonderful, buzzing culture of Hong Kong has inspired many great and famous quotes down the centuries. Here are some of the best lines uttered about HK.
“Hong Kong has created one of the most successful societies on Earth.” Prince Charles
“Hong Kong girls have a genius sense of style. I came back to the States thinking no one here has any individuality. Or cute enough socks.” Camilla Belle
“English is my second language, but in Hong Kong, they don't know that I'm from China. They think I'm from Hollywood because all the films they see are from here. China and Hong Kong are very different places, but they're starting to merge. Still the culture is very different.” Bai Ling
“You can leave Hong Kong, but it will never leave you” Nury Vittachi
“How about this? Hong Kong had been appropriated by British drug pushers in the 1840s. We wanted Chinese silk, porcelain, and spices. The Chinese didn't want our clothes, tools, or salted herring, and who can blame them? They had no demand. Our solution was to make a demand, by getting large sections of the populace addicted to opium, a drug which the Chinese government had outlawed.” David Mitchell
“If you're too free, you're like the way Hong Kong is now. It's very chaotic.” Jackie Chan
“Every inch of space was used. As the road narrowed, signs receded upwards and changed to the vertical. Businesses simply soared from ground level and hung out vaster, more fascinatingly illuminated shingles than competitors. We were still in a traffic tangle, but now the road curved. Shops crowded the pavements and became homelier. Vegetables, spices, grocery produce in boxes or hanging from shop lintels, meats adangle - as always, my ultimate ghastliness - and here and there among the crowds the alarming spectacle of an armed Sikh, shotgun aslant, casually sitting at a bank entrance. And markets everywhere.” Jonathan Gash
“When I went to Hong Kong, I knew at once I wanted to write a story set there.” Paul Theroux
“The problem with a lot of Chinese is that they put up divisions between Taiwanese, Hong Kong natives, mainlanders. We are never united. I really hope that the Chinese can be more united.” Martin Yan
