Hello, I am wondering which software you used to make the microfilm. Since I am planning to make a video myself, could you reply to me in the near future? Thanks in advance!      ---- Celandine

A country becomes the country that it is through the culmination of all the events in its history. Similarly, a man rises above the animal and becomes a man only when he accepts his country’s civilisation, created through its evolution and without which he could not progress in life. Are people today so proud and ignorant that they have no respect for the wisdom of the past? Crazy enough, certainly! We all should be aware of in both the future that we’re heading for and the past which was before our experience though must never be forgotten, one thing remains constant: the value of life in every human being’s heart. The questions were explored and the answers given by ancient sages and philosophers will, undoubtedly, enlighten the people of today and in the future. Much of the wisdom gleaned in the past is, largely, written in classic literature.
In my view, every classic novel gives us another window on life. Oh, how wonderfully thoughtful and brilliant the architects of those masterpieces are! Thinking of this, I become almost breathless each time I confront them. They have, surely, explored both society and the breadth and depth of the human heart so that they could create a world which was just as splendid as the reality of the time.
Who could forget the poignant tragedies of ancient Greece as they illustrated some of life’s magnificent scenes? Do you remember Oedipus, the king who tried every means possible to fight against his fate yet failed and, inevitably, killed his father in order to wed his mother? Whilst reading the classic stories, our hearts can’t help but tremble with those heroes but, conversely and in Aristotle’s words, they also purify our mind, enhancing our courage in the face of life’s adversities. Look! There comes Jane Eyre, poor but of strong character and high principles. What a lovely woman she is! She loves Mr Rochester not because of his fortune but the intertwining of their hearts. “Our spirits are equal, just as we walk through the graves and stand at the feet of God,” said Jane. Such a marvellous declaration will echo forever through the valleys of history, enlightening us as to what we, really, should pursue. Not the material possessions which would vanish someday but the inner spirit which truly defines a man.
Wide is the sea of lessons learnt from the wisdom of the past and the classic novels are like grains of sand on a beach, shining brightly in the sun. You may learn what to do when you pick up a few of these grains for they will guide and lead you through the darkness like the North Star. They will be an endless source of inspiration for the future, refreshing you like the water in a spring fountain.
So, let us adore the classics stories and read them again and again. It is only when we value them highly that we can make the best use of their wisdom and insights as we stride forward to the future with confidence.

  • Is it "Chinglish"? ---I don't tink so! 2014-5-29 15:06

    seanboyce88: I agree, it may be way too over the top for such a situation...but GRAMMATICALLY speaking it's not wrong. In mick's own words "it isn't good gram ...
    No, it's only correct in that it was used as an adjective to describe something. It was, however, incorrect in the context in which it was used.

    No one who has witnessed the execution of a serial killer would describe it as being a 'happy execution' yet the relatives of the victims may well have felt this emotion at seeing, in their eyes, justice being done.

    Ballet could never be described as 'breathtaking' though a particular performance might well deserve such an accolade. Similarly, it would be the performance of a play that would merit such praise, not the play itself.

    It is my understanding that you were born in the UK and that English is your first language. This entitles you to have a private opinion on the use of English but by no means qualifies you to lecture others on what is or isn't correct grammar especially those with many years of studying this wonderful language and who may rejoice in the title of a Master of English.

    You have opined that 'English is a descriptive language' and, whilst this is indeed true, it is also an accurate and concise language in that there is a word for almost everything. e.g. would you say that you are scared of heights or would you use the correct term and say that you are afraid of heights? The difference is there for a reason and that is to express exactly that which is intended to be understood.

    Shame on you, lad, for such ignorance of your own language.
