Self comment on the new road: "the grass of the grass, the vicissitudes of life taste bitter, but more close to the real life. Think of the past, often more general, more prominent somewhere facial features, it has a simple picture, emphasizing the pain and helplessness -- life presents music, not by sound sweet, when there are not old, old or old friends." Mr. Wu said, "all art more than music to poetry, poems in". He also said: "I have said this, Qi Baishi can not, a little more than one also does not matter, but Lu Xun is not the same, I am a single from the social function, they are not the same effect. Qi Baishi draws well, I also like, but a nation, a country needs Lu Xun. A little Lu Xun, Chinese would not be stronger."
