A disabled Chinese man uses his nose and chin to type on a computer and smartphone to create hundreds of beautiful poems, touching the hearts of many online.

Zhang Jiubin, 34, from a village in eastern China’s Shandong province, was diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy when he was three months old.

He cannot stand, use his hands, or speak clearly, but he has learned Chinese characters and written nearly 1,000 poems using his nose and chin over the past nine years, Xinhua News reported on September 15.

“Literature lets me know disability is not an obstacle to dreaming freely. Literature is the morning sun and spring breeze,” Zhang typed in the memo on his phone.
