The Meaning of the Asian Characters

Do you know The Meaning of the Asian Characters in the Artistically Asian set?

Here are the meanings next to the verses in the Artistically Asian stamp set. You may want to copy these out and store them with your set for future reference since the stamp case representation is not displayed like this: Meaning of asian characters

I love the flavor of this set but I hesitated to use the Asian characters if I didn't know the meaning. So I contacted Stampin'Up! and they provided the meanings for me and I wanted to share them with you.

The set is awesome for making tags like this one
