Alive

Alive To Taoists, the essence of life can be appreciated by observing the flow of water. The word "alive" (huo) in the Chinese language is composed of the root sign representing "water" (shui) and the modifying sign representing "tongue" (she), suggesting that flowing speech is the essence of living. http://www.atimes.com/atimes/China/EH01Ad01.html
