HAVING BEEN TO THE SEA, NO OTHER WATERS ARE

WORTH SEEING;

HAVING BEEN UP MOUNT WU, NO OTHER CLOUDS ARE WORTH WATCHING.

By Yuan Zhen ( 779-831, A FAMOUS
TANG DYNASTY POET )



This quote ,which is loved and used as a motto by millions of people, has been well-known for over 1,000 years .

About the story:


It is said that this poem was written by the poet, Yuan Zhen for his beautiful
wife who passed away at the age of 27. He used the waters of the sea and the clouds over Mount Wu as a metaphor to express his deep and abiding love for his wife. He vowed not to remarry for the rest of his life. He thought that there were no other women who could compare with his late wife.

Even today in China many people, especially young people who

broke up with their lovers , use this quote to refuse women or men who want to love or marry them.

曾经沧海难为水,

除却巫山不是云。

元稹



出处:唐· 元稹《离思五首·其四》。全诗:“曾经沧海难为水,除却巫山不是云。取次花丛懒回顾,半缘修道半缘君。”


译文: 经历过无比深广的沧海的人,别处的水再难以吸引他;除了巫山之云,别处的云都黯然失色。



原诗以沧海之水和巫山之云隐喻爱情之深广笃厚,见过大海、巫山,别处的水和云就难以看上眼了,除了诗人所念、钟爱的女子,再也没有能使他动情的女子了。据说此诗是为悼念亡妻韦丛而作。韦丛出身高门,美丽贤慧,27岁早逝后,诗人曾表示誓不再娶。



后人引用这两句诗,多喻指对爱情的忠诚,说明非伊莫属,爱不另与。

Beautiful artwork. One communication problem that I later discovered was my mistake (I failed to specify the desired orientation on a second contact with them) and they had offered to resolve. I decided to keep it anyway and use in another location. Came rolled tightly in a heavy tube to prevent damage to the delicate rice paper.
