What is article in Chinese?

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!)
