What is article in Chinese?

Popularity 1Viewed 738 times 2018-5-11 17:39 |Personal category:education|System category:News

文 looks like a man who has wide shoulders to carry  heavy load for family or society;

Is his stomach big? -----------In China we often use the idiom 满腹经纶 to describe someone whose ‘stomach’ is full of Bible and poems those are enough for him to deal with any problem in reality!---------- Ancient Chinese believed that the function of the heart was ‘thinking’ which in fact is the head‘s business!’

The bottom of 文 should be the two legs:Reading thousands of books is not enough to make you a real scholar, for more you must travel the world putting  theory into practice! That is the real meaning of the  idiom  ‘’走千里路,读万卷书”!

The top part of 章(zhang)is 立 which means ‘standing’ or ‘set up’;
Its middle component is 日 that is 'the Sun‘ which original form was one circle plus a short horizon-stroke inside that looks like the real shape of the star!
The bottom of 章 is 早 which contains the horizon-line of the ground and the vertical stroke symbols the route through which the Sun rises in the east in early morning.

So the whole image of 章 tells us ‘We must set up new idea through writing and let readers feel that as if they see the bright sunlight from the darkness!’’----------Try to make your article more meaningful is the first important thing! 

文 plus 章  is equal to ‘article’.  But it is not easy to do the sum for Searu! (laughing!)

  • Icecream was not enjoyable! 2018-8-2 21:20

    I don't like icecream either. Well I kind of like some icecream sometimes - like banana paddlepops. I eat a lot of banana paddlepops in the summer. I buy a box of them a week. You get about ten in a box and I eat them all on the weekends. And I also like peppermint chocchip icecream in a cone but I don't buy icecream in a cone very often. The last time was many years ago when I went to an icecream shop with a girl I was dating. She used to work in the shop when she was younger. But even if I eat icecream I do not like the milky aftertaste that is left in your mouth after you have eaten it. You get the same kind of disgusting milky aftertaste after you eat chocolate which is why I rarely eat chocolate. I do drink a lot of milk but I have to drink some juice or soda or something after I drink the milk to get rid of that disgusting milky aftertaste.

  • One piece of rubbish glass! 2018-7-24 18:56

    In real life, you often see waste glass or nails littered on the road which might drill a hole to the tyre of any vehicle passing by!
