此書採取語錄體,乃輯錄彭定康在任香港總督時的一些言論,其中包括九二年七月的就職演辭及九七年六月的離任講話,紀錄一個時代的終結。

 

“These constitutions invariably guarantee the freedoms that many Asia leaders then try to justify restricting. So there are democratic Potemkin villages - like China with its parliament and its pledges about civil liberties - but there are the real things too.” 

 

“It is not a sign of political apostasy to change one’s clothes when the weather changes; the weather and the clothes may change, yet the body remains the same.” 

 

“Hubris is always followed by nemesis; pride regularly precedes a fall; what goes up just as surely comes down…...Perhaps the greatest truth for all of us - and that includes Asia leaders - to grasp about Asia is that the same laws of political and economic gravity apply to everyone, everywhere. The apples and the lychees descend perpendicularly on every continent.” 

 

——Chirs Patten
