The following paragraph is abstracted from "The Spirit of the  Chinese people" by Thomson.


In fact,in order to understand the real Chinaman and the Chinese civilisation,a man must be deep,broad and simple,for the three characteristics of the Chinese character and Chinese civilisation are:depth,broadness and simplicity.
The American people, I may be permitted to say here,find it difficult to understand the real Chinaman and the Chinese civilisation,because the American people ,as a rule,are broad,simple,but not deep.
The English can not understand the real Chinaman and Chinese civilisation because the English ,as a rule,are deep,simple,but not broad.



After 100 years,the same question we face today. What is your opinions and points?

How in the world can the Americans come to understand the so called Chinaman. They themselves have differences with the British though they are distant "cousins" and speak the "same language" except with some slangs & lingos. The Americans -broad, simple & not deep. The British -deep, simple but not broad.
