Left radical is 'hill'. The right radical is derived from a character found only in Chinese meaning 'compassion/care'. Its middle and upper elements are different radical forms of 'hand', its lowest element is 'heart/feelings' (心). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hill can't hide feelings -- need hands over heart.'
