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 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.
A poet said “To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity 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.
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.
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.
The bat, the birds,and the beasts
There was a big fight between the birds and the beasts. The bat did not join in the fight.
Some birds said to the bat, "Come with us." But he replied, "I am a beast."
Later on, some beasts said to him, "Come with us." But he replied, "I am a bird."
At last the fighting ended peacefully. The bat first went to the birds, and wanted to join in the celebration, but they all turned against him. He then went to the beasts, but was also driven away.
Hercules and Pallas
When Hercules was walking in the forest, he saw a ball lying on the ground. He kicked it because it blocked his way.
To his surprise, the ball did not roll away, but grew much bigger than before. So he kicked it again much harder.
The harder he kicked, the bigger the ball grew. At last it completely filled up the road.
Pallas then appeared. "Stop, Hercules," she said. "Stop kicking. The ball’s name is Strife.
Let it alone and it will soon become small again."
The lion in love
A lion once fell in love with a beautiful girl, so he went to her parents and asked them to marry her to him.
The old parents did not know what to say.
They did not like the idea of giving their daughter to the lion, but they did not want to enrage the king of beasts.
At last the father said, "We are glad to marry our daughter to you, but we fear that you might possibly hurt her. So if you remove your claws and teeth, we will give her to you."
The lion loved the girl very much, so he trimmed his claws and took out his big teeth. When he came to the parents again, they simply laughed in his face, and beat him out of their house.
he ass in the lion's skin
An ass once found a lion's skin. He put it on, and walked towards the village.
All fled when he came near,both men and animals.
The ass felt quite proud. He lifted his voice and brayed, but then everyone knew him.
His owner came up and gave him a sound whipping.
Shortly afterwards,a fox came up to him and said, "Ah, I knew it was you by your voice."
