I believe in our future
Honorable Judges fellow students:
Good afternoon Recently ther is a heated debate in our society. The college students are thebeneficiaries of a rare privilege who receive exceptional education atextraordinary places. But will we be able to face the challenge and support ourselvesagainst all odds Will we be able to better the lives of others Will we be ableto accept the responsibility of building the future of our country The cynics say the college students are the pampered lost generation whichwould cringe at the slightest discomfort. But the cynics are wrong. The collegestudents I see are eagerly learning about how to live independently. We help eachother clean the dormitory go shopping and bargain together and take part timejobs to supplement our pocket money. The cynics say we care for nothing other than grades and we neglect the needfor character cultivation. But again the cynics are wrong. We care deeply for eachother we cherish freedom we treasure justice and we seek truth. Last weekthousands of my fellow students had their blood type tested in order to make acontribution for the children who suffer from blood cancer. As college students we are adolescents at the critical turning point in ourlives. We all face a fundamental choice: cynicism or faith each will profoundlyimpact our future or even the future of our country. I believe in all my fellowclassmates. Though we are still inexperienced and even a little bit childish. Ibelieve that we have the courage and faith to meet any challenge and take on ourresponsibilities. We are preparing to assume new responsibilities and tasks andto use the education we have received to make our world a better place. I believein our future.
下午好! 最近，社会上有一场很激烈的争论。大学生是一种稀有特权的享有者，在很棒的地方接受高等教育。但是，我们能面对挑战而无所畏惧吗?我们能够改善他人的生活吗?我们能够承担建设祖国未来的重任吗? 怀疑论者说大学生是被宠坏的一代，一丁点挫折都受不了。但是他们错了，我所看到的大学生正在努力的学习独立生活。我们互相帮助打扫卫生，一起上街砍价购物，一起参加兼职工作来赚零花钱。 怀疑论者说我们除了成绩什么都不关心，从而忽略了性格的培养。但是，他们又错了。我们彼此关心，我们向往自由，我们珍惜公正，我们追求真理。上个星期，很多我的同学去验血，为了给患血癌的孩子贡献自己的力量。 作为大学生，我们是处在人生分水岭的青年。我们都面临一个重要的选择：怀疑人生还是相信自己，每一种都会给我们的人生带来重大的影响，甚至影响我们祖国的未来。我相信我们的同学们，虽然我们依然缺乏经验，甚至有些志气，但是我相信我们有勇气和自信来面对生活的挑战并承担我们的责任。我们正努力准备接受新的任务，用我们所学习的知识将世界变得更美好。我对我们的未来充满信心。
Pubs are an important part of British life. Even very small villages nearly always have a pub. People especially men， will often go to the pub for a drink in the evening and at weekends. A man will usually go to the same pub， one which is closed by and which is called the local： I'm just nipping down to the local for a print. Women now go to pubs more than they used to， but usually don not like to go to a pub on their own. Children under 16 are not usually allowed into pubs， although some pubs have a children's room or a garden where children can sit.
Until 1988， pubs were only allowed to be open from 12：00 am to 2：00 pm alcoholic drink can be sold in a public place are called the licensing laws. Even though the law was changed so that alcohol can now be sold all day， many pubs still only pen at lunchtime and in the evening. When it is nearly time for the pub to close， the landlord or landlady shouts "last orders" and then "time".
Pubs often sell food or snacks as well as drinks. Food that is considered typical pub food is scampi (kind of shellfish) and chips (fried potatoes)， pie and chips， chicken and chips， and ploughman's lunch (bread with cheese)。
Pubs have names， For example: The Angel， The Black Swan， The Crown， The King's Arms， The Red Lion， The White Horse， etc. and people usually refer to the pub by its name： Turn left at the Rose and Crown. There is often a sing outside the pub showing the name with a picture.
Many pubs have two or more different bars. The public bar is usually plainly furnished and often has a pool table and dartboard. It is the bar usually used by the local people. The saloon bar is comfortable and well-furnished and is the bar that is usually used by men and woman drinking together.
My definition of success
Today I am very glad to be here to share with you my ideas of success. What is success? It is what everyone is longing for.Sometimes success would be rather simple. Winning a game is success; getting a high grade in the exam is success; making a new friend is success; even now I am standing here giving my speech is somehow also success.
However, as a person’s whole life is concerned, success becomes very complicated. Is fortune success? Is fame success? Is high social status success? No, I don’t think so. I believe success is the realization of people’s hopes and ideals.Nowadays, in the modern society there are many people
who are regarded as the successful. And the most obvious characteristics of hem are money, high position and luxurious life. So most people believe that s success and all that they do is for this purpose. But the problem is wether it is real success. We all know there are always more money, higher position and better condition in front of us. If we keep chasing them, where is the end? What will satisfy us at last? Therefore, we can see, to get the real Success we must need something inside, which is the realization of people’ hopes and ideals.
Different people have different ideas about success; cause people’s hopes and ideas vary from one another. But I am sure every success is dear to everybody, cause it is not easy to come by, cause in the process of our striving for success, we got both our body and soul tempted, meanwhile we are enlightened by the most valuable qualities of human beings: love, patient, courage and sense of responsibility. These are the best treasures. So now I am very proud that I have this opportunity to stand here speaking to all of you. It is my success, cause I raise up to challenge my hope.
What is success? Everyone has his own interpretation as I do. But I am sure every success leads to an ever-brighter future. So ladies and gentlemen, believe in our hopes, believe in ourselves, we, every one of us, can make a successful life!
Wish you all good success!
