胡適…Hu Shih

About NgTom

Three fundamental constituents support my life; they are literature, philosophy and photography. And I am rather glad that I don't really need them to sustain my living. But, it only implies my incompetent.

  1. This is a very beautiful composition. Wish I could read the characters…I’ll find my Chinese dictionary and study a bit today.

    Thank you for your ART and your wonderful eye for beauty.

      May I offer my helpful hand if you have any difficulties after reading the Chinese dictionary?
      I thank for your time to read my simple photo…
      And I am happy you enjoy that…thanks again…

      • When My younger son was working in Beijing (re-designing pollution control systems), he bought several very fine Chinese dictionaries, which I study only occasionally. While there, he purchased a Sumi-e kit, which I have never used.

        His business card was in Chinese on the reverse side, so I understand the characters, and am applying them (enlarged) to a small painting. Someday, when it is finished, I shall photograph it and post.

    Words of encouragement, challenge, the watchful eyes of our ancestors…a reminder to be diligent…to strive…a token of affection…gratititude for sacrifices made to bring us to where we are today….?? Very nice, Tom.

  3. NgTom, I was so intrigued by your photo but I didn’t know who Hu Shih was. I did some research and was so impressed by what I found. His philosophy and ideas are intriguing; has he been an influence on you? Thank you for posting this and teaching me something new.

      It is delighted to know you have spent your time in all this.
      Although I have read some of his books, but I dare not to say I was influenced by him.

    I ran across Hu Shih’s name when I read one of John Fairbank’s books on China a number of years ago. Your post caused me to look into some more details of Hu’s life. Very, very interesting.

    • NgTom says:

      I always wonder, while they passed away in the big current of history,
      what we can learn from them.
      And it seems few are interested to read John King Fairbank’s book nowadays,
      not to say Hu’s.
      Thanks for your time, Kerry…
