Daily Chinese Proverb: Superhuman

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Monday, 9 November 2009 4 comments

This Chinese proverb when broken down literally means 'three heads and six arms'. It is metaphorical of being above the ability of a normal man. I think this can be used in situations where someone does something so far beyond what was expected of them that it was a 'superhuman' effort.

Incidentally I think that Greg has made a superhuman effort with his Heisig learning.
