Questions about 草书


Recommended Posts


A neighbor of mine found something written on the bottom of a box. I examined it, and it was indeed Chinese. However, it was written very fast... This is called 草书, correct?

How can this be used by means of communication? Is it more for use for oneself? For leaving a note for oneself, for example? I can see how that would work, but how can someone read this?

This is what I have deciphered:

人生如 __ __,不__的__.做在生活和 __ __ 的 __ 中.

__ __ __ 一 __ __ __ 入色 __

__ __ __ __ 十或客 __ __ __ .


Can anyone decipher more of it? :mrgreen:

Thank you very much!

Sometime, we would say 人生如梦,which is orignal from 苏轼的《念奴娇·赤壁怀古》:

I'm pretty sure it's 人生如戏一场, 不幸的是走在生活和事业的的途中,急转而下,一落千丈,陷入绝望。榜上有名,寒窗苦读。I asked my girlfriend. She speaks fluent Mandarin and has a Chinese degree in Beijing University so it's pretty reliable.
