Share How to understand 磕
2019-10-5 17:05
磕 means ‘knock’. Why? 石 is ‘stone’; 去 means ‘going to'; 皿 is container like ‘cup' or ’plate‘ and so on. So the whole character shows:One stone is flying to the plate!-----------Two hard things are going to hit each other. That is the real meaning of 磕.

Share From nail to human
2019-10-3 18:33
In ancient times the chinese character 丁 meant ‘nail' which shape really looks like the iron thing with a sharp end: you can easily hit the nail into wood. In the modern era, 丁may refer to ‘a man':The top horizon line represents ’the sky'; the vertical stroke symbols the main part of the body while the last ‘hook' seems as the ’foot‘ or ’feet'. In china, we often say:"A real man should firmly stand on the ground to hold up the sky! ----------(顶天立地)". President Xi ...

Share The vertical heart
2019-9-28 16:37
What is ‘vertical heart’ in Chinese? 心 means the beating ‘heart’. Why? Its shape seems like the real appearance of an animal's heart with several blood vessels on the top. Or you may take the three points as blood drops pumped out from the main part of 心. As a fact, only few Chinese characters use 心 as one component. 芯(the center of something),蕊(fresh flower),意(mind). But there are too many Chinese words appear with a changed form of 心 that is called ‘vertical ...

Share To smooth the internal gas
2019-9-28 10:15
A few days ago, standing beside my Mom to take care of her, I felt a sudden ache in the chest near the left shoulder that ‘strike’ forced me to bend the body and squad down without self-controling! Seconds later, it seemed that the pain had gone away. I was puzzled by the strange phenomenon and didn't know the truth behind the story. On the second day, I had a similar pain in right part of the stomach at the waist level which was lighter than last time. I didn't take it seriously unti ...

Share What is real art
2019-9-26 10:48
Traditions are good living habits those have passed on from generation to generation for a long time. We should never expect that all of your traditions must be accepted by others. In the international culture market, everyone is free to choose their own loved goods for enjoymet. The problem is that it is a pity if we sell gold products as copper ones to foreigners! In other words, we must have a clear analysis on our past and draw a reasonable conclusion. For example: Mr. Zhao Ben ...

Recently I have noticed that 豆 is quite interesting for its unique appearance. In Chinese 豆 means ‘bean’. Why? Its inside oblong represents a round seed? Then what for the two strokes below? Yes, you may take them as semi-bowl holding the seed! The three-stroke under 口is half of the pod. When you divide a one-seed peanut into two parts, you can see what had wrapped the grain. The crust exactly looks like the remaining components of 豆 (without the middle one 口). ...

Share 寸 symbols ‘short’ or ‘small’
2019-9-18 09:45
时 means ‘time’. Its 日 is ‘the Sun’ but here that shouldd represent ‘one day’. 寸 shows ‘one short period' of the 24 hours per day. Another example is 辱(To say bad things about someone.). Its top is 辰 that was a giant dinosaur in the primary stage of the Earth. 寸 is so tiny that looks like ‘a worm’.How can you devalue a powerful animal as a weak worm?Obviously you are calling someone names!

Share To learn from others on thinking efficiency
2019-8-27 10:06
Quarreling is nothing but waste of time for reader friends! We had better focus more energy on ‘standard’ textbooks! I wish Chinese top-level scholars should tell literature or science stories in brief text that is an issue on the working style. We ought to think, speak and write in simple way that is easy for children to accept your concept! If there were enough videos on what had been going on in class in the ancient times, modern educators would laugh at our ancestors whose w ...

Share Schooling should train students to freely use words in easy way
2019-8-26 18:18
Thanks for your remarking on the level of my English! I can't help laughing for it! You may think in this way: We Chinese are taught to be modest before others. So it is unfit for me if I claim how well I do on the foreign language! My success(if so) on bloging tells me I have benefit a lot from the dictionary that language expert has offered me too much power on how to freely use words to express myself! I wish my writing go like the special english program from the Voice of America with ...

Confucius was one great educator whose teaching has deeply influenced Chinese society for so long! His success shows that a teacher should have his own theory on teaching who can encourage students to do independent thinking by themselves! Sometimes Searu feels sorry for Chinese kids who are asked to recite Confucian poems without one-word-changing! They swallow down the whole text as recorder does without personal analysis. Here I have to say that most of our schooling goes in a stupid wa ...
