Evidence that the phrase was in use as early as 1936 is provided in a memoir written by Hughe Knatchbull-Hugessen, the British Ambassador to China in 19, and published in 1949.He mentions that before he left England for China in 1936, a friend told him of a Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times." Some years ago, in 1936, I had to write to a very dear and honoured friend of mine, who has since died, Sir Austen Chamberlain, brother of the present Prime Minister, and I concluded my letter with a rather banal remark "that we were living in an interesting age".It is sometimes the case that what a westerner believes to be polite is sometimes completely the opposite of being polite in Chinese culture.One example would be in the giving of gifts, in Chinese culture it's actually rude to open a gift in front of the giver!You don't want to make one embarrassing mistake that will make her think twice about dating you again.

These "Chinese" proverbs had me in stitches - they have many an interesting, funny (and occasionally rather rude) nugget of wisdom to share with the world.

...makes a mistake on an elevator is wrong on so many levels...on a jockey’s lap gets a hot tip. - A passionate kiss, similarly to a spider’s web, leads to the undoing of the fly.

- The thing is though, virginity is like a bubble – just one prick and it’s all gone.

"May you live in interesting times" is an English expression purported to be a translation of a traditional Chinese curse.

While seemingly a blessing, the expression is always used ironically, with the clear implication that 'uninteresting times', of peace and tranquillity, are more life-enhancing than interesting ones, which from historical perspective usually include disorder and conflict.
