Fun with Chinese #2 从
Chinese Tidbits

Fun with Chinese! – 从 (cóng)

从 looks like two 人(rén)s put side by side. So it symbolises two people standing beside each other.

从 is an interesting word that has a different meaning depending on what it is paired with.
In this little poem 从 as in 追从 means to follow. 追 (zhuī) means to go after. So 追从 is to pursue.

Translation of the poem:
Two people, shoulder to shoulder.
Pursuing their dreams together.

What happens if we make it 3 人(rén)s?
