Family Survival in the American Jungle, Steve Farrar, 1991, Multnomah Press, p. 40
It's something like what Coach John McKay of USC said to his team after they had been humiliated 51-0 by Notre Dame.
McKay came into the locker room and saw a group of beaten worn-out and thoroughly depressed young football players who were not accustomed to losing. He stood up on a bench and said, "Men, let's keep this in perspective. There are 800 million Chinese who don't even know this game was played." That's what you call perspective.
