Quote: Simon Leys, The Hall of Uselessness, NYRB, 2011

"Traditionally, Chinese Scholars, Men of letters, artists, would give an inspiring name to their residences, hermitages, libraries and studios. Sometimes, they did not actually possesses residences, hermitages, libraries or studios-not even a roof over their heads-but the existence or the non-existence of a material support for a Name never appeared to them a very relevant issue".
