Lines ~ 线

If people-to-people contacts are represented by lines, which kind of line would you like to use to represent your contact with people?

Parallel lines? or crossed lines?

I think I would prefer parallel lines.

Someone asked, “Doesn’t that mean that the parallel lines would never meet up?”

I replied, “Isn’t that good? Why must the lines meet? Crossed lines do meet up at a point, but almost immediately, the lines would move forward in their separate ways. Although parallel lines never meet, but they move forward in the same direction. When a line is moving forward, isn’t it good to have another line moving in the same direction by your side? Between the two lines, there might be an occasional line to join the pair of parallel lines once in a while to touch base, isn’t that ideal?”

如果人与人的接触要用线条来做代表,您希望您与身边人的接触是属于什么线呢?

是平行线?是交叉线?

我想:我希望与大家都是平行线。

有人说:“这不就永远都碰不了面吗?”

我说:“这样不好吗?为什么一定要碰面呢?交叉线虽然在人生中的某一个点上碰了面,但是随即又因为意见不同而分开了,各自往不同的方向前进。平行线虽然永远都不交叉,但是至少大家都是往同一个方向前进。在前进的过程中见到旁边有另一条线陪着,不好吗?两条平行线之间偶尔也会有一两条垂线或抛物线来联系联系,不好吗?”
