All Tragedies are finished with a death, all Comedies are ended by a marriage.


YOU
hi
meaning: sunny, male, positive
陽光 == youkou == sunlight
陽子 == youshi == proton


Left radical is 'hill', right radical is a character now only found in Chinese that originally meant 'sun shining down'. 'Sunny side of the hill' lead to such meanings as 'yang' (male/positive). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Side of hill is positively sunny.'
