Joke to lionstar for returning gift!

Popularity 1Viewed 253 times 2017-10-7 10:12 |Personal category:education|System category:News

Mr.Lionstar played a joke on me in his comment to my that thread《what is the biggest enemy for Chinese education?》: His note is as following:
'Are you close to heart attack?"
I replied in this way:
Yes, I am going to have got 'heart-attack' if our authority don't take measures to cut off the cancer-like ‘reciting-disease“ from the education system!
(I know you are kidding on me. Anyway thanks for your concern about my health. To tell the truth, recently I have taken medical operation for varicose vein in the right leg. But now I am still as healthy and strong as star-lion! ;P)

According to our tradition taught by confucius, you are not polite if you don't  give Tom returning-present when you have received his gift!

    大浪淘沙------------Someone translated it as 'placed in rough sea'.
    大浪----------huge waves;   
    淘-------to wash sth in a  pan or basket or basin;
    Why 'huge waves wash sand'?   To get gold or other things from sand?
    Or the big  waves have washed away earth and mud from the sand just as what you deal with rice before cooking? ----------The God knows!
    浪淘尽千古风流人物-----------The waves have floated away too many ancient heroes into the sea!  (Most of ancient Chinese scholars were sensitive about the flying of time which seems like the running river!)  ----------The dead heroes have passed along with the old waves and what you could see is only yellow sand left!
    In general, we Chinese use the idiom-like phrase 大浪淘沙 as 'A bitter struggle or competition that is great challenge for your ability!’

    The background of the poem: I had spent two years in the campus of the Qv-Fu University where is confucius‘ home-town. Our inner feelings were very complicated when we were going to leave that familiar place!  ----------All students  would write down some warm-heated note on each other‘s diary for good-bye!’’  The poem above was I wrote to Miss. Li Ai-qing  who had been engaged with her classmate Tom whose home-town  was 梁山(liangshan or  liang-mountain).

    梁山绿林好汉威,----------- That here-like man with powerful appearance is so attractive since he comes from the deep woods of the Liang-shan county ( where the wonderful stories had taken place according to the famous novel  《Heroes of the Marshes》).
    平川德州彩云飞---------------Miss.Li  is going to take off like color clouds from her hometown where is  plain-area of the De-Zhou city!
    风飘旌旗巾帼将----------  Miss.Li looks like a female general with military-flags  waving in the air!
    大浪淘沙人更美---------------The future work life would seem like huge waves washing sand that  would let you become more beautiful!:$

    (Any poem contains too much information that makes the translation so hard even it was my own  work!;P)
