Learn Chinese - Chinese Idiom

alt

In the Southern and Northern Dynasties Period (nán běi cháo 南北朝,420-589AD), there was a painter called Zhang Sengyou (zhāng sēng yóu 张僧繇). Once he visited a temple and painted on the wall four dragons, but gave none of them eyes. The onlookers felt that this was odd, and asked why he had not painted the eyes. He answered, ‘Eyes are crucial for dragons. With the eyes painted on , the dragons would fly away.’ Nobody believed this, so Zhang Zengyou took up his brush and added eyes to two of the dragons. No sooner had he finished than the two dragons flew into the sky amid a thunderstorm. The two without eyes stayed painted on the wall. This idiom is used to describe how, when writing or speaking, one or two key sentences will enhance the contents.

World Friends Networks --- Thanks to World Friends! We got married!
Yuki, Japan and Kev, California

World FriendsKev sent me a smile in February 2005 and we started to exchange emails since then. In June he visited me in Japan for 2 weeks. He was very genuine and I became attracted to him, but I was unsure about his sudden marriage proposal to me. In November, I went to California and found how much he was loved by his parents and friends, so I decided to accept his proposal. Since then I've been busy running around to obtain the fiancee visa. The visa was granted at the end of August and I moved in October and got married on December 2, 2006 at Carmel Beach church. If I didn't join World Friends, I could have never met him! I sincerely appreciate World Friends for bringing us so much love and happiness!
