在甲骨文里,“力”字就像古时的犁( ),而象形字的“力”也可以用作动词“耕”的意思。这个字告诉我们:农耕是需要力气的。
From the oracle bones we can see that the original form of ( ) is like an ancient plough; the upper part, which curves at the bottom, is the wooden handle of a plough, and the lower part is its iron head. 力 is a pictogragh of a plough and was used as the verb “to plough a field”. Since ploughing the field requires strength, 力 then was used to express the meaning “force”, “power” or “strength”.
