A beleza da palavra escrita

Transcrevo outro excerto de O Livro de Cabeceira:

[151] Things That Look Commonplace but That BecomeImpressive When Written in Chinese Characters:
A dew-plant.
A prickly water-lily.
A walnut.
A Doctor of Literature.
A Provisional Senior Steward in the Office of the Empress's Household.
Red myrtle.
Knotweed is a particularly striking example, since it is written with the characters for 'tiger's stick'. From the look of a tiger's face one would imagine that he could do without a stick.
