- Piggy Bank
Beginning paragraph example (story) 编辑
Once in a store, I saw a bamboo piggy bank with Chinese calligraphy that read 有錢真好 (yo chen zhan hao). The phrase can be interpretated as either "it's nice to have money" or "it's nice to be rich". The wittiness made me smile at first. After some thinking, however, I realized it had a deeper meaning. While most people would agree with the phrase, they tend to be more concerned about the "money" part (and how much) rather than the "having" part. In this material world where there is excess in almost everything, we somehow have forgotten to enjoy what we have already. Perhaps we have become so evolved that we forgot what piggies know.
