—  Ba Jin Chinese novelist 1904 - 2005

On the character Chueh-hsin (Juexin), in Family (1931)
Kontext: He had never disagreed with anyone in his life, no matter how unfairly they may have treated him. He preferred to swallow his tears, suppress his anger and bitterness; he would bear anything rather than oppose a person directly. Nor did it ever occur to him to wonder whether this forbearance might not be harmful to others.
