One character a day, easy to master Chinese characters. Let's take a look at the basic knowledge of "从".
|Phrases: 从此(cóng cǐ) from now on ; 从前(cóng qián) before|
From early oracle bones, we can see two people standing close together, facing towards the left （ ）, one person following the other. So “follow” is the original meaning of this character. Then, by extension and evolution the meaning shifts towards “obedient” and “from”, also “accessory.”
1. Tāmen cóngcǐ búzài pínqióng.
After that they were no longer poor.
2.Xīwàng nǐ bǐ cóngqián kuàilè.
I hope you are happier than you were before.
