    This sentence come from confucious dialogues chapter 1: 学而 (xueer).
    It is actually very hard to translate becouse this ain’t modern chinese, it is classical chinese, more precisely Middle archaic chinese.
    You can’t just translate character by character, instead, you must give a more interpretated version, even personal, of what is written. Here is the nearest translation I can possibly give: If a friend comes from a distant place, isn’t this pleasant?

    Anyway, the translation in the picture is just hilarious!!! :D
