Words of a Man’s Mouth

March 18, 2007

I just stumbled across the site, [Words of a Man’s Mouth](http://www.wordsofamansmouth.com/).

> The site founder was visiting a shop in Hong Kong and came across an old leather-bound journal with photos of young men and writings in Chinese. It looked like a school yearbook from the 1940s. He bought it, scanned the pages and posted them onto the site, inviting people to comment on the images.

The title of the Web site is from a quote at the beginning of the book: “The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.”

As I clicked through the site, I found myself compelled to continue. Reading the comments from readers was fascinating.

If you can read traditional Chinese, please have a look at the site. Perhaps you can help with some of the translation and, in turn, help discover more about the author and people in the book.
