Default Asian Art Word Symbols

I have Asian Art from SUp from 2001 and retired in 2004. Does anyone know what the word symbols mean? There are five in a vertical row. Are they Japanese or Chinese? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Sue

It says Listen to Your Heart. But it's basically written as a English to Chinese direct literal translation, so it actually looks and sounds funny in Chinese. And it's written as if a child wrote it.

Don't know this set but would suggest that you make sure, when using them, that they are placed in the correct position. Yes, there is a right side up and SU didn't do their research for the Fall-Winter collection 2007 catalogue, p 59. The Asian character on the card sample in the picture in the upper right corner is upside down. I found this a little disrespectful and lazy on SU's part-might have insulted some customers! I know it has been awhile but if I am not familiar with something, I try to do some research so as not to use an unusual item in an insulting manner. If I can't readily find an answer, I'll wait to use this item until I do.

Sorry for the 'soapbox' comment. Didn't mean to hijack this thread or get it off-track.

Another comment: the sample of the stamp with the English, on the left of the card picture, shows the character right side up.

I have a friend whose family is from China and they would be upset if they received a card with the character in the wrong orientation.

Thank all of you for your help!
If you look in the SUp Gallery under A for Asian Art, the index for this set is 18 rows down, the 53rd image on that page.
Shelly, I will also email you.
Thanks again,
Sue

It says listen towards your heart, the second character is a wrong preposition. Here, the characters are correctly oriented.
