„To get rich is glorious!“

—  Deng Xiaoping
Deng is commonly quoted with this phrase in western media but there is no proof that he actually said it However, this phrase in Chinese is more accurately translated as ""wealth is glorious,"" where wealth can have a very general meaning, including knowledge, personal relationships, family: anything of value. Understood this way, the quote is not as directly controversial as a ideological/political statement, and so it is not hard to believe that he really did say this.
