​Wood(木)

This is a pictograph of a tree with its branches,trunk,and roots.Only the trunk and branches are suggested because 木 also stands for wood.

“木”字是由樹的樣子變來的,一橫是從枝葉變來的,豎是主幹,下面的部分是樹根。“木”還代表木材。

To enter three-tenths of an inch into the timber

Wang Xizhi was aprominent calligrapher of the Eastern Jin Dynasty(317-420).His style was beautiful,bold and vigorous.He was very diligent about practicing;even when resting,he would engage in figuring out the structure of characters by“writing” on his clothes.With the passage of time,his clothes were worn out by rubbing.It is said that once a carpenter found that the ink of the characters Wang Xizhi had written on a plank had soaked almost one centimeter into it.

This idiom originally described the vigour of Wang Xizhi’s handwriting.Later,it came to be used to mean penetrating analysis.

入木三分

王羲之,字逸少,晉朝時會稽(今浙江紹興)人。他是中國歷史上最有名的書法家之一。因為他曾經做過右軍將軍,所以後人又稱他為王右軍。他博採眾長,開創了一種獨具一格的書法風格,被後人喻為"書聖"

王羲之的字寫得既秀麗,又蒼勁有力。固然與他的天資有關係,但最重要的還是由於他的刻苦練習。他為了把字練好,即使是在休息,心裡也想著字體的結構,揣摩著字的架子和氣勢,而且不停地用手指頭在衣襟上畫著。時間久了,連身上的衣服都劃破了。還有一次,當時的皇帝要到北郊去祭祀,讓王羲之把祝辭寫在一塊木板上,再派工人雕刻。雕刻的工人在雕刻時非常驚奇,王羲之寫的字,筆力竟然滲入木頭三分多。他讚嘆地說:“右軍將軍的字,真是入木三分呀!”

“入木三分”就用來形容書法筆力剛勁有力,也比喻文章、見解深刻、透徹。
