Under what circumstances did Napoleon make the China statement? Where is the source to this quote?
- India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.

- Seek for science. Even to China.
- China is like a sleeping giant. And when she awakes, she shall astonish the world.
- Napoleon Bonaparte, 1803
- The Chinese have gained achievements in only 20 years which would take many other countries two centuries to accomplish.
