My mandarin improves while I'm at uni (I still am) and my accent is of those from mainland China. The same goes to hokkien and hakka. However I speak cantonese like a Hong Kong people.
    You're eerily similar to me, except the cantonese bit!

    Regardless of white and black cats, they can also ruin your furniture, carpets, cause rabies and drain your bank account of liquidity in vet and food.

    And they sit smugly on the floor looking at you, "Yea, what do you want?".

    You may or may not know it, but what your quote here has huge historical significance. The above quote plus another by China's paramount leader Deng Xiaoping in the late 1970s actually started China's beginning of its now red hot economy.
    I was still working then and when our China contact and consultant came back with Deng's quotes of "It doesn't matter if a cat is black or white, so long as it catches mice" and "Poverty is not socialism. To be rich is glorious", we immediately started doing business, really big business, with China. The black or white cat quote is the genesis of China's rise. Ask every Chinese businessman and they will know its significance. It has benefitted the world more than knocking down a chair here or a TV there.

    I may be wrong but I think the quote below from Deng Xiaoping may give a clue to why China have continued to have such a long, unbroken civilization and culture, like not overstretching your reach. Deng's quote:
    "China is not a Superpower, nor will she ever seek to be one. If one day China should change her color and turn into a Superpower, if she should play the tyrant in the world, and everwhere subject others to her bullying, aggression and exploitation, the people of the world should identify her as social-imperialism, expose it, oppose it and work together with the Chinese people to overthrow it".
