Hi! Welcome to “About China”!
In today’s program, we will talk about ” a year's plan starts with spring”.
A year's plan starts with spring; a day's plan starts with early morning" is a popular Chinese proverb summed up" by the farmers during their cultivation of crops. It shows how Chinese people think of the changing of the seasons during a year and how they relate to one's daily life.
It emphasizes the importance of spring out of the four seasons and that a good harvest depends on the spring sowing. It also reminds us to work harder to lay a good foundation for the whole year.
In Chinese language, teenagers are compared with the spring, since they are full of hopes and dreams for their lives ahead of them. That's why the Chinese word youthful" which contains the character spring" is used to describe the young people who are at the spring season of their life.
