„I am doing my best to glorify the scamp or vagabond.“

—  Lin Yutang, книга The Importance of Living
The Importance of Living (1937), Context: I am doing my best to glorify the scamp or vagabond. I hope I shall succeed. For things are not so simple as they sometimes seem. In this present age of threats to democracy and individual liberty, probably only the scamp and the spirit of the scamp alone will save us from being lost in serially numbered units in the masses of disciplined, obedient, regimented and uniformed coolies. The scamp will be the last and most formidable enemy of dictatorships. He will be the champion of human dignity and individual freedom, and will be the last to be conquered. All modern civilization depends entirely upon him. Ch. I : The Awakening, p. 12

„The best that we can hope for in this life is that we shall not have sons and grandsons of whom we need to be ashamed.“

—  Lin Yutang, книга The Importance of Living
The Importance of Living (1937), Context: A reasonable naturalist then settles down to this life with a sort of animal satisfaction. As Chinese illiterate women put it, "Others gave birth to us and we give birth to others. What else are we to do?".... Life becomes a biological procession and the very question of immortality is sidetracked. For that is the exact feeling of a Chinese grandfather holding his grandchild by the hand and going to the shops to buy some candy, with the thought that in five or ten years he will be returning to his grave or to his ancestors. The best that we can hope for in this life is that we shall not have sons and grandsons of whom we need to be ashamed. p. 23

„That is a final fact of my inner consciousness, and for no religion could I deny its truth.“

—  Lin Yutang, книга The Importance of Living
The Importance of Living (1937), Context: I feel, like all modern Americans, no consciousness of sin and simply do not believe in it. All I know is that if God loves me only half as much as my mother does, he will not send me to Hell. That is a final fact of my inner consciousness, and for no religion could I deny its truth. p. 407
