    Share a fable:
    Once upon a time, there was a landlord. He had a young child who don't like to study and was obliged to have a private teacher, who taught patiently that " one" (In Chinese is written as 一) is very easy , just one horizontal line , while "two" (二) is two horizontal line . So the child asked whether "three" (三) is three horizontal , the poor teacher was droven out immediately after he said "sure" because the child "don't want to waste the rice for a teacher".
    A few days later, landlord will have a banquet for friends, one invited friend's surname is ten thousand "万'. In order to test the child's konwledge, the landlord asked the child to write an invitation card.
    One day past , the landlord was anxious to wait for the invitation card , but the room was tight closed . So the landlord enter the house, to his suprise, the floor was full of paper written by many lines, the child was be covered with sweat ,and complained :"Mr. 万 is too hard to write down, I have just finished 3 thousands"......
