For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

2.Quotes from Steve
the essence of any movie/novel/music, etc are about three things:
1) man vs man
2) man vs nature
3) man against themselves
3. quotes from Linyutang
A good traveller is one who does not know where he is going to, and a perfect traveller does not know where he came from.
Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.
Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.
If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live.
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.
Our lives are not in the lap of the gods, but in the lap of our cooks.
Society can exist only on the basis that there is some amount of polished lying and that no one says exactly what he thinks.
The wise man reads both books and life itself.
This I conceive to be the chemical function of humor: to change the character of our thought.
Today we are afraid of simple words like goodness and mercy and kindness. We don't believe in the good old words because we don't believe in good old values anymore. And that's why the world is sick.
Where there are too many policemen, there is no liberty. Where there are too many soldiers, there is no peace. Where there are too many lawyers, there is no justice.

5. The Nobel Prize in Literature 1964 was awarded to Jean-Paul Sartre "for his work which, rich in ideas and filled with the spirit of freedom and the quest for truth, has exerted a far-reaching influence on our age".
Jean-Paul Sartre declined the Nobel Prize.

Thanks a million, Laura.
Designing a mascot must be a very difficult job.
yeah, i was just trying to make notes, to consolidate the quiz knowledge... I know this is really really nerdy...
Thank you, that makes me feel better. Yes, I can get you a copy. I've had that nightmare too.
Don't worry about it Laura. Sometimes not having all the answers can be a good thing. ;)
Quiz master, the quiz was fantastic! Can I have a copy of your quiz?
Btw, I had a nightmare yesterday: I was back to high school and the teacher ask me to the blackboard to do the questions, as what happened during the quiz, I failed some of the questions...
Are you trying to tell me something about the quiz?
Laura - one of your quotes
"If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live."
I must be doing something right then! I have done this many times!
