Hi everyone. Do you like Chinese characters? I enjoy reading the “stroke art”. It’s just amazing that each character can have such rich meaning!

Which Chinese characters do you like most? For me, I like 愛 the most. Cuz it means love and contains heart in the middle.

It's too difficult to write

The Chinese character for "love" is easy to read, but too much difficult to write. i don't like it. I like the character for "humans", that's “人“. it's easy to write and its shape shows that one single person can not stand well. Only when supported by others, one can stand up firm in the world.

No, no...


is not difficult to write. Not at all.



I prefer (gàng) in 戆嘟 (gàngdū, = idiot in Shanghainese).



It means "stupid", but that's irrelevant for its graphic structure; it has harmony and balance.

I like SHUI - water. It's simple, pleasing to write, and I like the meaning & qualities of water. I definitely vote for shui.

Shui is the second one in this pic, the first one is feng, wind. Ignore that one, I don't like it. It's too enclosed, not free. (although wind is free)
