The sea refuses no river. 海纳百川,有容乃大




Hǎi nà bǎi chuān , yǒu róng nǎi dà

海纳百川,有容乃大;

Bì lì qiān rèn , wú yù zé gāng

壁立千仞,无欲则刚。

——林则徐(Lin Zexu)

 

你听说过上面这句话吗?

Have you heard the famous saying above?

在中国,这句话流传甚广,很多公司学校里、各种书本上都能够看到它的“身影”,也有很多以此为文素的书法作品。

其实它本来是清末政治家林则徐任两广总督时在总督府衙题书的堂联,意思是说,大海因为有宽广的度量才容纳了成百上千的河流;高山因为没有勾心斗角的凡世杂欲才得以挺拔傲立。

It was originally a couplet written by Lin Zexu (a Chinese scholar and official during the Qing dynasty who is most famous for his active fight against opium smuggling in Guangzhou). With the meaning about "the sea refuses no river, therefore it has a large capacity;and the mountain is austere because it has no selfish desires", this saying is used by a wide margin now. You can see it commonly at school, on a notebooks or mostly in a Chinese Calligraphy works.

这不,我们的外国同学们,也不放过深入学习这句话的机会。在周三进行的书法课活动中,同学们就一起学习书写了“海纳百川”这四个汉字。

Our students also took the chance to learn this sentence better ——

They practiced to write "海纳百川" in the Calligraphy Class on Wednesday!

 

他们写得不错吧?

Let's see how they made it!

活动开始,于宇老师为我们讲解了关于中国书法的相关历史知识。

Firstly, Eudora explained history and cultures about Chinese Calligraphy to us.

 

学习了文化知识,我们就一起去书法教室,进行实战练习啦!

After learning about the culture of course we went to practice!

 





 
 
 
 
 
 

怎么样,我们写得很不错吧?

通过这次的活动,同学们都对汉字有了更深刻的认识,也更加热爱美丽神奇的汉字了。

Through this class, all of us have learned more about Chinese characters. No matter if you can write in characters when you study Chinse, you will find that Calligraphy is really attractive!

 
 

怎么样,看起来有趣吗?下次,你也一起来吧~

How do you feel about it ? If you are interested, why not join us next time?
