“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

February 20th #chinadiary

The final day in the United States before sailing. Gets his tickets and visa from Chinese consulate, taking an unexpected turn through Chinatown on his way back and clearly taking extra effort to observe and note what he experiences there. Encounters John R. Mott ('Mott') for the first time (later recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize). Carl describes Mott's address at the YMCA (the 'Y') as "quiet, but very forceful" and that Mott has a "commanding personality". A final afternoon of sightseeing is followed by a banquet at the YMCA.
