comment 了解 vs 明白 vs 知道 - what is the difference, and when should I use each one?
Actually now I'm contemplating over this, I think 明白 can be used as verb too, as in 明白事理。

comment 了解 vs 明白 vs 知道 - what is the difference, and when should I use each one?
I read "明明白白我的心“ as 我的心 is 明明白白, but you are right, 了解 can be used as a noun. good call.

comment What is a good form of address for a male friend who is too old to be 小, too young to be 老, and too humble to be called 大?
what about "your friend" :) introducing himself by "您好,我姓柯。您怎么称呼?" if the other person says "call me 小X/大X/阿X", then he can chose what he wants others to call him accordingly?

comment Why is tofu used in 心急吃不了热豆腐?
This makes sense...i think i've always mistaken its meaning as "if you are in a hurry to eat tofu, you won't give it enough time to heat up." I was thinking the opposite, but your explanation makes good sense. and the english is perfect! thanks.

comment What's the meaning of 缘分 in English?
maybe 缘 can be better described as social entanglement: to have 缘 with someone is to be socially entangled with someone. It hints at a cause-effect. 缘 is to socially entangle to fulfill a certain destiny...now I'm here, I feel destiny might be a better word than fate at this effort :)

comment What are the connotations of the word 拳拳?
Thinking about it, 拳拳之心 does have an earnest meaning. What do you think about the name 诚拳 (honest fist)? It shares the same pronunciation as 成全。

comment When is it proper to use 托您的福?
additional info to my above comment: 1) if you are using 托您的洪福 to mean 'thanks to your help', then my above modern day equivalent is correct; but 2) if you are using it to mean 'thanks to the good fortune that you've brought me', then there really is no modern day equivalent that i can think of off the top of my head.
