Life brings death.
Death brings eyes.
Each time we blink
we open our eyes again,
yet, when we blink our last
people will close their eyes and tear.

However, the death will cause people to eventually open their eyes once again.
Become stronger, strive to live as long as they can.
Life brings death.
Death Brings life.

In regards to Chinese... I`ve always been interested in learning it. I had originally planned to study Japanese for a while, then move on to Chinese or Korean. Life intervened and things didn`t go quite as planned, however.

The biggest worry I would have with studying it is that I wouldn`t be able to do the tones correctly. That is a new one for me as it isn`t in English or Japanese.

So a starter question - How does the tone system work in Chinese?

Well, like i said earlier on, Chinese words are categorized into different pitches, according to how they're said.
There're four different classifications altogther. This is their correct order, from first to last.
-normal pitch.
-high pitch, rising alittle to the end.
-low pitch, rising alittle to the end.
-short and sharp pitch.

It's hard to describe how they really sound like, you'll have to hear them for yourself. ^_^
hope that helps.
