    • 1943, Kwok Ying Fung, “Out of Yesterday”, in China[1], New York: Henry Holt and Company, →OCLC, page 15:

      This resistance brought suffering that affected each individual. It gave even the young children national consciousness. It put the marching song of the soldiers upon their lips. The children cry the fulfillment of a prediction when they sing "Chi-lai, chi-lai . . ."—"Arise, arise . . . ten thousand with one heart."
