1978年11月邓小平访问东南亚到了新加坡,李光耀总理的一段回忆记录了当时二人当时的一段对话。李光耀的话看似鼓舞,但作为中国领导人的邓听来恐怕只能心酸,以沉默回应。“……我答道他们绝对可以(从文革中)恢复过来并比新加坡做得更好,毕竟我们是福建广东没有产业不识字农民的子孙,他们是守在故乡的学者、官吏、文人的后裔呀”

He invited me to visit China again. I said I would when China had recovered from the Cultural Revolution. That, he said, would take a long time. I countered that they should have no problem getting ahead and doing much better than Singapore because we were the descendants of illiterate, landless peasants from Fujian and Guangdong while they had the progeny of the scholars, mandarins and literati who had stayed at home. He was silent.
