Quotable Friday: from Watering Heaven

“I fell in love with Beijing’s eccentricities the moment I landed, the lavish landscape of skyscrapers intermingling casually with the ancient hutongs and decrepit apartments. It all seemed like part of the canvas of a brilliant beatnik engineer suffering delusions of petulance, never satisfied, always proud. Flaws weren’t pariah here; foibles were badges of character, not something to be brushed away in Photoshop.”
