Quote of the week (Aug. 31, 2010)

Sep. 1, 2010

Hǎi zhī suǒyǐ néng zhuāng nàme duō shuǐ,
海  之    所以   能      装       那么   多    水,
shì yīnwèi tā  de wèizhi zuì dī  —  zuò rén yào dīdiào.
是   因为   它 的 位置   最 低——做   人   要   低调。

 

The reason the sea can hold so much water is because it keeps the lowest position. —Keep a low profile.

 —From “李开复 (Lǐ Kāifù) Li Kaifu,” former President, Google China.

“河” is the Chinese characters for river, “湖” is the Chinese words for lake.

“河水” which means “river water.”

I learned the Mandarin Chinese word “海” from this article. How about the Chinese characters for “river” and “lake?”
