Need to have heart to love



Despite my usual curmudgeon-y-ness, I love this. From Yen-Ling Von Meister who writes: "上海機場所見。One of the billboards at Shanghai airport - the character might be simplified, but one must use heart to love (the simplified character depicting "love" dropped the "heart" component from the traditional writing form)"

Here's my favorite story about the Chinese character, "ai": http://www.annarbor.com/passions-pursuits/the-genesis-of-chinese-writing-and-the-art-of-chinese-calligraphy-at-umma-saturday/
