    Below is a translation of a passage from the book 漢子書法之美 by 蔣勳. I think that it quite nicely shows how lucky we are to study a language like Chinese.

    漢字是人類文明裡唯一傳承超過五千年的文字,
    唯一的非拼音文字,
    唯一還可以在現代科技的電腦中方便使用的古文字.
    它是最古老的文字, 也是最年輕的文字.

    Chinese Characters is human civilisations only non-alphabetical script that has been transmitted for over 5000 years, and yet can still be conveniently used in today's technologically advanced computers. It is not just the oldest living script, it is also the youngest.

    (i.e given that it can be used in so many different time periods without perishing by being able to be revitalized to fit the requirements of each period.)
