Louis Cha, GBM, OBE (born 6 February 1924), better known by his pen name Jin Yong ( 金庸, sometimes read and/or written as "Chin Yung"), is a modern Chinese-language novelist. Having co-founded the Hong Kong daily Ming Pao in 1959, he was the paper's first editor-in-chief.

Cha's fiction, which is of the wuxia ("martial arts and chivalry") genre, has a widespread following in Chinese-speaking areas, including mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and the United States.

“She was beautiful, without comparison, but she exuded and icy and emotionless aura. She was as hard and as cold as ice and it was difficult to tell whether she was pleased or angry.”
Jin Yong, 射雕英雄传(全四册)

“黄药师微微一笑,说道:「兄弟这个女儿,什么德容言工,那是一点儿也说不上的,但兄弟总是盼她嫁个好郎君。欧阳世兄是锋兄的贤阮,郭世兄是七兄的高徒,身世人品都是没得说的。取舍之间,倒教兄弟好生为难,只得出三个题目,考两位世兄一考。哪一位高才捷学,小女就许配于他,兄弟决不偏袒。两个老友瞧着好也不好?」

欧阳锋拍掌叫道:「妙极,妙极!只是舍侄身上有伤,若要比试武功,只有等他伤好之后。」他见郭靖只一招便打伤了侄儿,若是比武,侄儿必输无疑,适才侄儿受伤,倒成了推托的最佳藉口。黄药师道:「正是。何况比武动手,伤了两家和气。」

洪七公心想:「你这黄老邪好坏。大伙儿都是武林中人,要考试居然考文不考武,你干么又不去招个状元郎做女婿?你出些诗词歌赋的题目,我这傻徒弟就再投胎转世,也比他不过。嘴里说不偏袒,明明是偏袒了个十足十。」”
