Gains in thought of Deng Yaping's speech

I had been watching a video for the past 20 minutes. It is a video filming Deng Yaping making her graduation speech in University of Cambridge. I was so astonished at her English speaking. She is not only talented at playing Ping-pong. She has gift in English, too. But that isn't the point I want to share here. I mean she is champion for many World Table Tennis Games. Now she has dimisssed from the national sports' team and went to college. She had been to Qinghua University and then went to University of Cambridge. She made it no matter what she tried to do. I have to say she is a person of characters, such as diligence, cleverness and philanthropy. She worked through all the difficulties to attain what she aspired for.

Another point I got from listening to her speech is that people can become stronger when they have sufficient resources or broader sources. I am sure that after she got a bunch of world titles, after she became famous home and abroad, she got lots of lots of resources and ways open to her. So she could decide to sign up for a university for education and the path to a university was paved thoroughly for her. But I have to say not all the successful sports stars have a thought to go to college after their staying in the national sports' team. She is ambitious and wants to get more.

So now I am talking about resources and ambition. In fact, as ordinary people, we don't have enough resources whenever we want to achieve some goals. However, that doesn't mean we should stop or blame the world for it. In many cases, we are not ambitious enough to make good use of resources we can find. Which is the major reason, misleading us away from the direction to our goals.

Just think about what we have. Do we have enough time to go for a goal? Do we have enough enthusiasm to persist in accomplishing a goal? Do we try every way, every resource we can find to help us make it?

Deng Yaping can easily have resources, even more than we have in the case that she and we go for the same goal. Yet, she is more ambitious than we are when on the way to achieve her goals and ours. We may not become famous at the end of our life but we still can smile at what we've done then.

Just keep our ambition  for every unfinished goal for as long as we can.

    Actually I may make you misunderstood. Before China's reform and opening-up, an very important policy to China and to the world as well, Chinese women preferred to cover up, only leaving their faces, necks and hands in the air. So there was a long time when Chinese women filled themselves up with clothes. And now, the old Chinese people or even my mom still think they are so exposed with just a little cloth when girls on TV show more parts of their bodies outside, of course, they are wearing clothes still. But Chinese young girls do copy the trend of wearing shorts to show off their fair-skinned legs, which started in South Korea, I think. In South Korea there are many girl groups. They are singers and dancers as well. They wear short dress or short shorts to attract our eyeballs. As far as I am concerned, in terms of the Chinese girls who wear shorts or short skirts, maybe there are some sluts but I believe that most of them just want to follow the trend, feeling confident themselves and maybe they just like the way they are dressed. Another thing to add to that is that Chinese modern girls still want to cover their upper bodies so they choose clothes that help avoid any exposion of their upper bodies except for their arms,necks and faces. So in fact, you can't easily find any sluts in China, yet. Back to the topic of my blog, my point is that the art I saw a few days ago is made with a thing which shapes as a woman's body and the painter drawed a traditional Chinese picture on it. I think it is fine for art to do so. We should not think about sex while talking about art. Art is nothing to do with sex just as sex is nothing to do with art. The last point I want to talk with you is that I am not a person who welcomes sluts, not to mention to be OK with it. But I love arts. Art embodies beauty and inspiration. Anyway, you do give me a new way to think about girls who wear so sexually even when they don't mean it.

    Not all females like to dress like a slut. Many females still do dress like ladies and to me this is far more attractive. I agree with China that sluts should be made to feel ashamed of themselves. Why do females feel the need to display their bodies in public anyway? It is because they are sluts. The worst ones are the ugly sluts because they are disgusting. Some guy like you will encourage sluts because you are only thinking of the hot ones but what happens when you have to walk by some big fat 60 year old slut that has decided to go topless in public? This should be enough to make any person vomit but in ridiculous places like New York USA where they encourage sluts there is nothing that can be done about all of these disgustingly ugly sluts that get about. Is that really what you want? To give license to any horrid old slut to walk about in public without a shirt or bra on? You need to think much harder. And even a hot chick that walks about without a shirt on should be despised because what are they trying to gain by dressing this way? Advantage? What massive sluts these sluts are. And you know what else is slutty? High heels. Why do females where high heels? To be festive? It is because they are sluts. And all of these sluts that wear skirts to work all through winter - what massive sluts they are. They know why they have the job dont they? Guys like you wouldnt be as nice to them if they wore flat shoes and other sensible non-slutty clothing would they? What sluts!
