詩和遠方 [shī hé yuǎn fāng]

詩和遠方 [shī hé yuǎn fāng] <Expression> Poetry and the far-off land. This expression comes from the quote from Zhang Kequn, musician Gao Xiaosong’s mother, “Life is more than resigning to the mundane affairs in life; it is also about poetry and the far-off land.” This quote became popular among Chinese young people under the pressure of high housing prices in big cities. It is often cited to inspire people to stop fretting over not amassing enough material wealth and instead find a place of inner peace through art and travel.
