Quote of the week (Mar. 23, 2010)

Ài búshì xiù de, xìngfú búshì shài de.
爱  不是 秀 的,幸福   不是   晒   的。

Love is not for showing off and happiness is not for display.
Culture Note: Many famous stars in China like to show that they are satisfied with their personal lives by disclosing them to the public. When the media reports on this type of celebrity news, it usually says: 他们在秀恩爱 (Tāmen zài xiù ēn’ài) They are showing off their affection; 他们在晒幸福 (Tāmen zài shài xìngfú) They are displaying their happiness.
