口若悬河【kǒu ruò xuán hé】

Recommended Posts

There was a great scholar, Guo Xiang in the Jin dynasty, who studied both Lao Zi's and Zhuang Zi's theories deeply. Since he was knowledgeable, expressive, and had thoughts on many complicated questions or problems, another scholar Wang Yan praised him and said: “Listening to Guo Xiang is like watching an endless river fall down from the cliff.” 


[Annotation]: Like, as if. 悬河: The state of a river falling.

[Definition] Refer to talkativeness and eloquence.
