Quotes[edit]

  • 碧玉妝成一樹高,
    萬條垂下綠絲縧。
    不知細葉誰裁出,
    二月春風似剪刀。
    • Ten thousand branches of tall trees begin to sprout,
      They droop like fringes of a robe made of green jade.
      But do you know by whom these young leaves are cut out?
      The early spring wind is as sharp as scissor blade.
    • "Willow Trees" (《咏柳》), in 150 Tang Poems, trans. Xu Yuan-zhong
