what does "smile indefinitely" mean? #1 (permalink) Fri Apr 08, 2011 9:16 am   what does "smile indefinitely" mean?
 

Hi,

I'd like to know what "smile idenfinitely" means, and what does the whole sentence mean:

I was smiling indefinitely to pursue looking back.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I did some researches and found out that the sentence was written by a Chinese. I'm not sure if it make any sense to you then.

No, it does not make sense to me at all, sorry. In fact, I understand very little of that poem or whatever it is.
