篇一:Never give up 永不言弃

Never give up

When we were young, our teachers had told us that never give up when we were in trouble. Some people understand the words, and do it. Over the years, Yet those men who doesn't give up seems to come out of his or her struggles okay. They are happier than others. Maybe that is the value of the words. We should never give up, whenever we are in trouble.

To illustrate the value of the saying, I'd like to share a story about my mother. When she was a student, she always strict with himself on her study. As a result, after graduation, she successfully went into a middle school as a English teacher. Ever since, she have never given up on a student before. XiaoMing was a naughty boy. One time, he inflicted a major head injury on a classmate in a dispute. After that, the school decided to expel him. As his head teacher, my mother tried to persuade school leaders not to give up the boy. And she assisted him with English. The boy was grateful for the hard-won study opportunity. Now he has become a English teacher, too. I asked my mother why not give up the student at that time. My mother told me that a teacher could change the course of children’s life. And after realized that, she would never give up a student. And in the process of guiding each child, she gained a sense of happiness.

Now I dream to be an ideal teacher. And in my opinion, the significance of never give up is getting the satisfaction and fulfilment of having helped someone.

篇二:【语泉英语】英语美文:坚持理想 永不放弃_lanswell

The adolescent girl from Tennessee is standing on the stage of a drama summer camp in upstate New York. It's a beautiful day. But the girl doesn't feel beautiful. She's not the leggy, glamorous Hollywood type. In fact, she describes herself as dorky。


Since she was six years old, Reese Witherspoon has wanted to be a country singer. And Dolly Parton is her idol. But this flat-chested wisp of a girl is no Dolly Parton.Nevertheless, all of this summer she's been acting, dancing and singing—giving it her best。


Play to your strengths. If you're going to make it in this business, it's not going to be on sexy—that's not who you are. Better focus on what you're good at. Celebrate yourself。


Despite three years of lessons, at the end of camp her coaches tell her to forget about singing. They suggest she think about another career. If Reese did have talent, it was hiding under her skinny, mousy frame and her Coke-bottle glasses。


Still, she takes their words to heart. After all, why shouldn't she believe the professionals?虽然心有不甘,可她还是听从了建议,毕竟,她有什么理由怀疑专业人士呢?

But back at home in Nashville, her mother — a funny, happy, upbeat person — wouldn't let her mope. Her father, a physician, encouraged her to achieve in school. So she worked hard at everything and was accepted at Stanford University。

但回到位于纳什维尔的家里,她的妈妈—— 一名风趣、快乐、乐观的儿科护士——可不会让里斯感到丝毫的沮丧。她的爸爸是一名医生,他鼓励女儿在学业上有所成就。于是,她凡事努力,终于被斯坦福大学录取。

And at age 19, she got a part in a low-budget movie called Freeway. That led to a substantial role in the movie Pleasantville. But her big break came with Legally Blonde。


Well, she decided, "if you can't sing and you aren't glamorous, play to your strengths. If you're going to make it in this business, it's not going to be on sexy — that's not who you are. Better focus on what you've good at. Celebrate yourself." And then came the offer that took her back to her Nashville roots — playing the wife of tormented country star Johnny Cash. A singing role。

她暗下决心:“既然自己没有歌唱天分,又不是光彩照人,那就尽力演出。要想在这行做下去,就不要在性感上做文章了——自己不是那种类型的。最好在自己擅长 的方面下功夫。要展示自己。”这时,她接到片约,邀她出演约翰尼?卡什——一个饱受折磨的乡村歌手——的妻子,这是个需要演员有唱功的角色,该片约又把她 带回到纳什维尔的家乡。

All of a sudden the old fears were back. She was so nervous on the set, a reporter wrote, she "kept a sick bucket" nearby and admitted she "would go backstage after a singing scene and shake." But she didn't give up on the movie or herself。


The humor and drive she learned at home overcame the self-doubt learned on that summer stage. She spent 6 months taking singing lessons again. She learned to play the Autoharp. And the hard work built up her confidence。


Last March, Reese Witherspoon walked up on another stage, the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, and accepted the Oscar as Best Actress for her heartbreaking, heartwarming singing role as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line。


Finally, as you read thse accounts of Reese Witherspoon, consider the obstacles she met. The lesson of the strory, I suppose, is that instead of making dozen excuses why you can not realize your dreams, think about this story, just hold to your dream and never give up。

Do We Need “Never give up”?

It is widely accepted that “Never give up”, a strong and positive life attitude, is the key for individual success on the grounds that permanent persistence may boost our confidence, strengthen our will, and provide us a second chance for success when we are in hardship. However, others argue that sensible abandonment is more precious than blind persistence because the wise one should choose the most suitable area for himself/herself.

In my opinion, we need to learn to give up timely. The most immediate reason is that we should adjust our aim carefully in order to go ahead continuously. Sometimes, to give up those uealistic targets is

essential for success. Besides, the attitude “Never give up” exhausts us both mentally and physically. Only through learning to give up can we lead a pleasant and relaxing life. Finally, the temporary comprise means a new start, a beginning bringing new hopes, expectations and opportunities for us.

Passive as giving up sounds alike, it represents a more mature and realistic mentality. If those opposing this attitude can take into consideration of its benefits, then this may seem acceptable in our lives. 二、

How to Solve the Housing Problem in Big Cities?

With the development of modern industry, more and more people are flowing into big cities. Accordingly, the housing problem in big cities is becoming much more serious. People in the big city are complaining housing shortage and roaring price of the housing.

As we know, the temptation and opportunities provided by big cities attract people who want

to make a fortune in big cities, which is the major cause of housing problem in big cities. Besides, house vacancy and speculating in the housing market are becoming the tough problem. We can’t deny the housing problem has brought about great pressure to the low-income families. Meanwhile, solving this problem will affect the public’s confidence on the government.

To solve this problem, I think building satellite cities in the suburbs is more practical. The fresh air and beautiful scenery in the suburbs will pull many people from the overcrowded city and alleviate the pressure of housing.

How to Eliminate Fake Diplomas?

There has been a serious epidemic of fake diplomas in some big cities recently. Usually a certificate of Bachelor’s Degree costs about 200 yuan, which is really cheap compared with the 4 years of hard work and the pretty big sum of fees involved in normal ways of getting the diploma. The victims of fake diplomas are first of all employers, who pay high salaries but do not get real talents. People who have genuine diplomas are also hurt greatly. They have honestly spent 4 or even more years and great energy working hard in schools, but cannot get any advantage in job hunting.

To combat the epidemic, practical ability and individual personality should be recognized as important factors of excellent job performance. Besides, effective measures supported by advanced IT technology should be introduced and taken to help employers distinguish genuine diplomas from fake ones.


谈谈你对选秀节目的看法 On TV Show





On TV Show

TV has been one medium of communication that has connected millions. And it is this link that makes talent hunt shows on the tube amazingly influential. Young faces conveying disappointment or even overwhelming joy have become a common sight on as many channels as your remote allows you to surf.

Some people have their opinions on the TV shows. The advantages of the shows are clear to some people. For one thing, in terms of business, the increasing popularity of talent shows has helped the channels in generating huge income by way of advertising and promotions. For another thing, the TV shows can make the common people have opportunity to show themselves.

Personally, I side with the former opinion. It is a wonderful feeling and a great way to relax for me to watch talent shows and see ordinary people like myself become famous and win cash

prizes. As long as talent shows are entertaining and inspiring us, there is great sense in keeping and encouraging them.

A Letter of Advice

Dear Freshmen,

I, the undersigned, am a senior in the Computer Science Department of Peking University. I would like to say a few words to you, which I hope would be helpful to you.

To begin with, the change of ideas is of most importance for freshmen to adapt themselves to campus life. During the middle school days, we usually depend upon our teachers at school and parents at home. However, the life and study on university campus features independence, which is essential to our psychological development. In my view, we had better always bear in mind the idea of independence.

What’s more, English learning is a must. On one hand, without CET 4 certificate, we can not get our degree when we graduate from university. On the other hand, when we hunt for job, English level is a deciding factor. Therefore, I do hope that all of you will have a good understanding of the necessity of learning English well.

Good Luck to you!

Sincerely Yours

Li Ming
