Chairman mao has written, "so many deeds cry out to be done, and always urgently; the world rolls on, time presses. ten thousand years are too long, seize the day, seize the hour!"
This is the hour, this is the day for our two peoples to rise to the heights of greatness which can build a new and a better world.
In that spirit, i ask all of you present to join me in raising your glasses to chairman mao, to prime minister zhou, and to the friendship of the chinese and american people which can lead to friendship and peace for all people in the world.
-- america─and i make bold to say that though. he may have had many opponents he had hardly one personal enemy.
His name will endure through the ages, and so also will his work!
In the national rejoicing and pride, the french people send brotherly greetings to their gallant allies, who, like themselves and for the same cause, have sustained so many hardships over such a long period, to their heroic armies and to those commanding them, and to all those men and women who, throughout the world, fought, suffered and worked so that the cause of liberty and justice might ultimately prevail.
