#75

In school, I was taught to memorise some apt proverbs for English subject. I see its relevance today when I can use these to understand a little of that written by the media.

At the moment, ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’ stands out.

One interprets that read depending on which side of the fence one is sitting on.

I pick ‘the talking point’ below for convenience and I like the perspective of the Chinese to the recent Olympics Torch fiasco.
