we are the world ,we are the future someone said “we are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book, whose pages are infinite”. i don’t know who wrote these words, but i’ve always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want it to be. we are all in the position of the farmers. if we plant a good seed ,we reap a good harvest. if we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all. we are young. “how to spend the youth?” it is a meaningful question. to answer it, first i have to ask “what do you understand by the word youth?” youth is not a time of life, it’s a state of mind. it’s not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips or supple knees. it’s the matter of the will. it’s the freshness of the deep spring of life. a poet said “to see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infi癫痫能治好吗nity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour. several days ago, i had a chance to listen to a lecture. i learnt a lot there. i’d like to share it with all of you. let’s show our right palms. we can see three lines that show how our love.career and life is. i have a short line of life. what about yours? i wondered whether we could see our future in this way. well, let’s make a fist. where is our future? where is our love, career, and life? tell me.yeah, it is in our hands. it is held in ourselves. we all want the future to be better than the past. but the future can go better itself. don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened. from the past, we’ve learnt that the life is tough, but we are tougher. we’ve learnt that we can’t choose how we feel, but we can choose what about it. failure doesn’t mean you don’t哪里治癫痫治得好 have it, it does mean you should do it in a different way. failure doesn’t mean you should give up, it does mean you must try harder. as what i said at the beginning, “we are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book, whose pages are infinite”. the past has gone. nothing we do will change it. but the future is in front of us. believe that what we give to the world, the world will give to us. and from today on, let’s be the owners of ourselves, and speak out “we are the world, we are the future.”
needless to say, money is not very important, but very very important.
if there is no money, i can’t use this microphone to speak to you and we can’t have such a room to hold such a competition. without money, we can’t study in such a schoolyard. without money, we can’癫痫病能除根吗t live in such a hometown. without money, we can’t have such a motherland. on the other hand, if there is no money, you don’t need to bear my speech about money now.
most of us have dreams about the future, dreams of having a good job and making much money. surely someone has thought at times “if only i had a lot of money, i could be the happiest person in the world.” in fact it’s the main mistake that people make about money.
however, is money the road to happiness? not really! many people work every day, work overtime, work weekends to make a lot of money. are they happy? no. they are too busy making money. meanwhile, their personal lives, if they have any, fall apart. they have no time to form or to maintain friendship. they even lose the abilities to relax and to enjoy themselves. enjoying means taking things, taking 癫痫病危害有哪些time to see, to hear, to taste, to smell, to feel. they do not take time to do this. they say: “i’ll do it when i have enough money to retire” then they find that it is too late.
why we usually make such a mistake and even more mistakes? activists say it is because of money itself. they think money has changed many things. for example, they think money has changed our way to measure someone’s value in the society. they even regard money as the source of evil. also, they hate money, but they are wrong, completely wrong.
in my opinion, it is unfair to money. money is a tool. well, there’s no denying that we do something harmful with money. but we can’t say money is the source of evil. just like a hammer, we can use a hammer to kill someone, but can we say a hammer is a devil? it is the same with money.
