Daily Chinese Proverb: Time

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Thursday, 27 August 2009
Although this proverb brings up thoughts of English King 'King Canute' who tried to stop the tide by ordering it to. Although tide in this case refers to a period of time, remember the saying 'good tidings', the same is of course true of the sea, unless as a man your job is to build sea defences... in which case you could be said to be stopping the tide.

suìyuè bù ráorén
Time and tide wait for no man

No one is so powerful that they can stop the march of time.
