April 2nd, 2007
from the book titled - Chinese Personal Names - by Ning Yegao, Ning Yun

Life is like a blank sheet of paper
Having no special significance.
Only when touched by green,
Did I begin to grow,
Red gives me warmth and feelings,
From yellow I learned loyalty and uprightness,
And from blue, purity and dignity,
Pink brings me hopes
Grey increases my sadness.
To complete this picture of many colours
I need black to promise death.
I've fallen even deeper in love with life
Because I love its colours.

The poem above illustrates the feelings that colours convey to a person. Different colours symbolise different feelings and evoke different emotions on the part of the beholder.
