“You know the old saying, better a friend nearby than a brother far away… but on the other hand, friends are good to have near or far, and brothers are pretty important, too…that old saying bites.”

Not exactly a touching sentiment, it’s more of a “no touching” sentiment.

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!!! 😀
