精卫填海

jīng wèi tián hǎi

An indomitable spirit

精卫 is the brave little bird who used to be the daughter of 神农. 填 means fill up. 海 is the sea. We use the idiom to describe people who are firm and indomitable and will not stop until they reach their goal, despite overwhelming odds.

Literal meaning: Jingwei, the brave bird fill up the sea

Explanation: to describe people who are firm and indomitable and will not stop until they reach their goal, despite overwhelming odds

E.g

我们要学习精卫填海的精神。

wǒ men yào xué xí jīng wèi tián hǎi de jīng shén 。

We need to learn the indomitable spirit like the brave bird Jingwei.
