Isn't mine interesting?

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.
But no one dies in the right place
Or in the right hour
And everyone dies sooner than his time
And before he reaches home.

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
