PostSubject: Chinese Question   Sun Dec 20, 2009 11:56 pm

Hi all,
On the Ng Family shirts on the back below the willow tree, there is some chinese writing. When I had it translated (by a waitress in a chinese resturant) she said: "When the Mountain is empty the Rock is hole". She also said it had a deep meaning. Can anyone tell if the translation is correct and what is the deep meaning?? Thanks.

Only slightly different from the translation I got from Dr. Ng, which said "When the mountain is empty the stone is still the same."

The deep meaning I'll leave to those better qualified. I have an understanding, but I am young and foolish and I will leave the philosophy to wiser folks.

I've thought and thought about what the translation actually means and have came to my own conclusion but I believe it applies differently to different people, depending on their way of thinking and perception of everything.

In my opinion, it depends on your opinion of the translation.

LOL, sorry I couldn't have been of any better help as my view may not be entirely correct but it does reflect what I think and feel now!
