About time someone started such a thread! :lol:

My signature [*beams with pride*] is taken from the second half of the second stanza of a poem by Xin Qiji (AD1140-1207), the most celebrated nationalistic poet of the Southern Song dynasty. Here is the full poem in Chinese:

辛弃疾--南乡子 wrote:何处望神州?满眼风光北固楼。千古兴亡多少事,悠悠,不尽长江滚滚流。

年少万兜鍪,坐断东南战未休。天下英雄谁敌手?曹刘。生子当如孙仲谋。


A rough, literal translation of the second half goes:
A youngster, he commanded ten thousand men,
Guarding the Southeast, forever fighting the foe.
Of the heroes of the world, who is of his match?
Cao, Liu.
Should one have a son, let him be like Sun Zhongmou.


The last line, of course, is a quote from Cao Cao, who, upon seeing how the Wu troops kicked ass, exclaimed, "Should one have a son, let him be like Sun Zhongmou! As for Liu Jingxing's (Liu Biao's) sons, they are but pigs and pups." :lol:

My sig is pretty obvious. It was another one of Churchills moral boosting speeches, I think this one was refering to the pilots who fought at the Battle of Britain.

My sig is just a couple of quotations by the Taoist masters. There are so many great little snippits from which to choose (!) but I decided to go with the theme of not seeking after fame. The main reason I like these quotes so much is because arrogance and people who brag about their own talents annoy me to no end.

My sig. I would like it relates to me :lol:

I might change it quoting mighty speeches by Sun Wukong from Journey to the West.

My signatures are usually about a little proverb I create by myself on logic but also mean real life, like my current one can be based on; no matter what the problem is... running doesn't mean you escape them" so mine are just simple and plain but at the same time complexed and true I suppose you could say. :roll:

I'm pretty sure that was in a Disworld book once, but maybe you didn't know. Oh well! :)

My signature was stolen(Did I say stolen? I meant borrowed) from SAN comics as most of you probably know, but one of my favorite signatures was this one:

"Clever talk and a pretentious manner are seldom compatible with the benevolent." - Confucius

"BUGGER." - Death
