It is said that innovation sustains the progress of a nation. The same is true for individuals. The hurdle race the picture depicts is symbolic of an innovation race. In the course of clearing the hurdles, every athlete is consciously looking over his or her shoulders at opponents for fear of lagging behind others. Strangely, practically no one focuses on hurdles at his or her feet.

As a matter of fact, innovation should involve two sides: We should not only surpass others but surpass ourselves endlessly. The athletes the picture describes, however, just set their minds on the former and shut eyes to the latter. If the results of our innovation are only small steps ahead of others but bring no fundamental shifts to ourselves, then this innovation is only improvement of a kind but not a breakthrough in a real sense. This kind of innovation lacks vitality whose gradual weakening, disintegration and perishing are only a matter of time.

Judging from this aspect, I would argue setting up a two-way, reasonable and effective innovation mechanism is sorely needed. This system should not only correctly evaluate external competitions innovations are faced with but also put self-improvement on its agenda. In terms of the evolution of the whole nation, innovation is not so much a means as one of the ultimate objectives. Only by putting innovation at a level of surpassing others, especially ourselves, can we hope to stay ahead of the increasingly fierce competition.



其实,创新应包括两个方面:不仅对外要不断超越他人,对内更要无止境地超越自身。然而这幅图片所描述的运动员们恰恰只侧重前者,对后者则置若惘然。如果我们创新的结果只是领先别人一点点,而相对于自身没有本质的变化,那这一创新仅仅是某种形式的改良,而不是真正意义上的突破! 这样的创新是没有生命力的,其接下来逐渐地弱化,瓦解,灭亡仅仅是一个时间上的问题。



确评估创新的外在竞争,更要将其对自身的提升纳入日程。 创新就整个国家的发展而言,与其说是一种手段,不如说是最终目的之一。只有将创新置于超越他人,尤其是超越自己的高度,我们才有望在日益激烈的竞争中立于不败之地。



Perseverance is crucially important. In this picture, a man in his middle adulthood is watching a stream of drops drip across an opening on the edge of a cliff, flushing and rather confused, seeming to be pondering: how can these insignificant drops wear the stone?

What the picture tries to convey is obviously a spirit of perseverance. This truth is self-evident to everyone, but not everyone would put it into practice. Perseverance is a long-term slow process, often without outstanding advancements during the course although you have made painstaking efforts. This drains a wealth of people's patience, dishearten them and makes them give up in the end.

But for people hoping to make some achievements in study and career, perseverance, I would argue, is the most basic standard of behavior. Any attainment is accumulated by little matters in ordinary life. No one will get on in life overnight. Although the process of perseverance is boring

and back-busting, it is a wealth to remember in life, not to mention the fruits for which you have

been craved. Always bear in mind: Rome was not built in a day.



显然这幅图画要传达的是一种持之以恒的精神。任何人都知道这个道理,但是并非每一个人都会付诸实践。 持之以恒是一个长期缓慢的过程,期间往往没有突出的进展,尽管你付出了一定的艰辛努力,这使得许多人逐渐失去耐心,继而灰心,最终放弃。




Virtually all young adults aspire to be independent, no matter in entertainment or study or survival. Ironically, some of them, vividly depicted by the picture, are unable to live on themselves. It is obvious that the muscular man shown in the picture is calling his mother just for an easy problem: washing the socks.

Indeed, we are treated to a wealth of ridiculous spectacles, which are now more than ever in ample supply: students planning on sharing a nanny are rising in numbers; some prominent professors only stress theoretical knowledge and a large portion of their students lack basic living skills; countless families across the whole society are, without disguise, accepting and boasting such a prejudice: youngsters capable of doing housework are not promising. Even there are media

which keep trumpeting some child prodigies by outdated standards which place a high value on

external scores over internal quality. Therefore, it is no surprising when we take a look at the picture again.

Confronting such a worsening phenomenon, we should engage ourselves in self-reflection. So does the whole educational circle. It is my strong conviction that it is essential for the administration to reform or establish a novel educational system, which will contribute to heightening young folks’ capacity of adapting to practical living. Plus, average educators should shift conventional notions in an effort to give out a signal that scores are no longer God. After all, quality is superior to scores. Healthy, ambitious and independent youngsters are the intrinsic driving force behind the sustained growth of the future. Lastly, young people should learn how to cope with the most basic daily routines on their own and see evading such duties as a disgrace.






In this cartoon, a student in his dormitory is phoning his mother and asking her how to wash socks. His heavy dependence on his mother reflects a widespread phenomenon in China Mainland now. How to make their children independent concerns a majority of parents.

A only child is always like a flower in a glasshouse which can't weather any storm. There is a widespread impression that these children are not strong enough to overcome various difficulties. These little emperors are indulged and protected by their parents. And excessive care and love always would produce an adverse effect. They are always puzzled about how to lead an independent life when they reach adulthood.

Parents should teach their children how to deal with various situations, especially awkward ones. Children should take every opportunity to improve their problem-solving abilities and gain real independence. We all fervently hope that these children have less reliance on their parents and become independent economically and mentally.

Section IV: Writing


The definition of love is broad and shouldn't be confined to the relationship between lovers. Love is a common language around the planet. This picture's hidden meaning is easy to grasp: the harder times one experiences, the more valuable others' help is.

Project Hope is a classic example demonstrating the crucial importance of love to us. Many children in underdeveloped regions in China drop out of school so as not to burden their families of low economic status. For most of them, their dreams are shattered after they quit school. A considerable majority of them start their careers as a migrant worker. This project, designed to help them further their studies, attracts great attention from society. A growing number of people are getting involved in this worthy cause. The sufficient financial support and widespread public concern resulting from this project allow many children in poverty-stricken areas to return to school.

The best way to express love, in my eyes, is to offer a hand to whoever is in desperate need of help. The power generated by love is immeasurable. We hope that love shines a light in every corner of our hearts.
