i take with me the memory of friday afternoon acm happy hours, known not for kegs of beer, but rather bowls of rainbow sherbet punch. over the several years that i attended these happy hours they enjoyed varying degrees of popularity, often proportional to the quality and quantity of the accompanying refreshments - but there was always the rainbow sherbert punch.
i take with me memories of purple parking permits, the west campus shuttle, checking my pendaflex, over-due library books, trying to print from cec, lunches on delmar, friends who slept in their offices, miniature golf in lopata hall, the greenway talk, division iii basketball, and trying to convince dean russel that yet another engineering school rule should be changed.
finally, i would like to conclude, not with a memory, but with some advice. what would a graduation speech be without a little advice, right? anyway, this advice comes in the form of a verse delivered to the 1977 graduating class of lake forest college by theodore seuss geisel, better known to the world as dr. seuss - here's how it goes:
my uncle ordered popovers from the restaurant's bill of fare. and when they were served, he regarded them with a penetrating stare . . . then he spoke great words of wisdom as he sat there on that chair: "to eat these things," said my uncle, "you must excercise great care. you may swallow down what's solid . . . but . . . you must spit out the air!"
and . . . as you partake of the world's bill of fare, that's darned good advice to follow. do a lot of spitting out the hot air. and be careful what you swallow.
hello, schoolmates and teachers.
good afternoon, everybody!
i'm pang qiyuan, from class 2, senior 3.
today i'm very happy here to talk about my dream. i hope you can support me and do me a favor, ok?
dream likes a beautiful flower. different people have different dreams.they make the earth colorful and wonderful. a dream is a target in life, in which it can give people power. it can show people the directions and final destinations.
i have three dreams. my first dream is that i wish i could go to college some day, which is also the one of many other students' dreams. going to college for further education can not only enrich our knowledge, but also teach us how to behave better. i always imagine that the college life must be very interesting. this dream gives me energy to study harder and harder. now i'm trying my best to make it come true. sure, i have enough confidence to realize my dream.
my second dream is becoming an excellent doctor. i always dream that i could turn a doctor like bai qiuen, so that i could cure a lot of patients, help them get rid of sick devil, let them lead a healthy and happy life, and finally i will feel happy, too.
my third dream is that all the people together with the surroundings can live in perfect harmony. there are no quarrellings, no cheatings, and no wars in the world. we should be kind to each other, love each other and care each other. all the people in the world could get along as well as a big family with each other. i dream that we could enjoy absolute peace and freedom.
these are my dreams. how i wish that they could come true soon!
as everyone knows,english is very important today.it has been used everywhere in the world.it has become the most common language on internet and for international trade. if we can speak english well,we will have more chance to succeed.because more and more people have taken notice of it,the number of the people who go to learn english has increased at a high speed.
but for myself,i learn english not only because of its importance and its usefulness,but also because of my love for it.when i learn english, i can feel a different way of thinking which gives me more room to touch the world.when i read english novels,i can feel the pleasure from the book which is different from reading the translation.when i speak english, i can feel the confident from my words.when i write english,i can see the beauty which is not the same as our chinese...
i love english,it gives me a colorful dream.i hope i can travel around the world one day. with my good english, i can make friends with many people from different contries.i can see many places of great intrests.i dream that i can go to london,because it is the birth place of english.
i also want to use my good english to introduce our great places to the english spoken people,i hope that they can love our country like us.
i know, rome was not built in a day. i believe that after continuous hard study, one day i can speak english very well.
if you want to be loved, you should learn to love and be lovable. so i believe as i love english everyday , it will love me too.
i am sure that i will realize my dream one day!
we are the world ,we are the future
someone said “we are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book, whose pages are infinite”. i don’t know who wrote these words, but i’ve always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want it to be. we are all in the position of the farmers. if we plant a good seed ,we reap a good harvest. if we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.
we are young. “how to spend the youth?” it is a meaningful question. to answer it, first i have to ask “what do you understand by the word youth?” youth is not a time of life, it’s a state of mind. it’s not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips or supple knees. it’s the matter of the will. it’s the freshness of the deep spring of life.
a poet said “to see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour. several days ago, i had a chance to listen to a lecture. i learnt a lot there. i’d like to share it with all of you. let’s show our right palms. we can see three lines that show how our love.career and life is. i have a short line of life. what about yours? i wondered whether we could see our future in this way. well, let’s make a fist. where is our future? where is our love, career, and life? tell me.yeah, it is in our hands. it is held in ourselves.
we all want the future to be better than the past. but the future can go better itself.
dream is beautiful, it is the bottom of my heart the most beautiful expectations, so the dream also become our long-held beliefs.dream is the sun, it makes people from impetuous to solid, from the hesitation to the firm, and on the road to success.
dream is powerful, it is the life source of forward momentum; lofty dreams can inspire a life all potential.because of this we will go to dream, to grasp the dream, the pursuit of dreams.
our new president xi jinping came up with the dream of the chinese nation's rejuvenation on december 29, 20xx.he said: the chinese dream is a dream of national strength prosperity and people's happiness.
our people have an ardent love for life. they wish to have better education, more stable jobs, more income, greater social security , better medical and health care, improved housing conditions and better environment, they want their children to grow well, have ideal jobs and lead a more enjoyable life. to meet their desire for a happy life is our mission."
i always ask myself what can i do for our great chinese dream ? as we all know that the wiser the youths are ,the wiser the nation will be;the wealthier the youths are ,the wealthier the nation will be;the stronger the youths are ,the stronger the nation will be. here the word wealthy means: enriching our knowledge reserve.as a new generation of youth , every one here shouldering the great historical mission of making china powerful and strong.
you may say that this may exaggerate our role, but i want to say you are wrong. if i am a little screw our great dream may be a multifunction and complex machine. through this example i just want to say i am very tiny but i am indispensable .
i believe that as long as all of our young people unite together and perform our own functions that study hard in school and work hard after we graduating from university . we must be able to achieve our great dream meanwhile enrich ourselves unwittingly!
my dream, our dream, to improve the chinese dream. let us unite together to realize chinese nation's great rejuvenation to struggle!to you the day of my dreams to realize, is standing at the time of china.
accidentally, found that we have stepped into the way old people envy, middle-aged people want to stay, the young man yearned for youth. those with the blood of youth, is permeated with the passion of youth. however, friend you ever seek to think what is youth?
youth is bright flowers in march, the fiery red sun youth is july, october is youth beautiful charming red leaves, quietly elegant quiet snow in january is youth, youth is a spray of the rising sun, is with hundred ge, fight the sky is the eagle, youth is happy note, is the symbol of our new.
in modern times is an electrical fire limits to invite in the age of the universe, in today's world is a rapidly changing world of dazzling! knowledge update with each passing day, science and technology advance by leaps and bounds. delays are dangerous, laziness will fail! has become an irresistible. in order to the take-off of the chinese nation, each of us should do our best to go to work. only fight for our country modern paint a perfect future, only can we realize the value of our youth.
in a classmates if there is no struggle, and how to get out of the ideal university. let us use wisdom and courage raised the ideal sail, with the era of youth and life played aspiration. let we abandoned the confusion, mastered the course. let us work together to unremitting scull, go and play the jiyang movement of youth!
the classmates! we harness the ship of life, tried to sail to the youth's value to the other shore, let's move ahead strutting towards our bright future!
finally, i wish all my classmates in the coming mid-term examination, achieved satisfactory results, to realize the value of youth.
look forward to three senior triumph of the university entrance exam, win honor for our school, create the brilliance of youth.
different people have different career outlooks. some people want to become civil servants; some people hope to start their own business; some people dream of being freelancers, and so on.
however, my ideal job is teaching. firstly, i’m told that teachers have a high income. with the high income, i can open a training school to help the children in poor families with their education. secondly, teachers always have summer and winter holidays, thus i will have more free time to relax myself. more importantly, teachers are angels to students, who can pass on the knowledge to students as well as help them develop their hobbies and interests. i can’t imagine how happy i will feel when i see my students become elites.
in order to be a qualified teacher, i should read more books to acquire more knowledge, and train my patience and improve my communication and handwriting abilities.
first, i would like to know, what does your destiny offer you? happiness, wisdom, a body or something else. if i had asked this question to president nixon, he would probably had said,”our destiny offers not the cup of despair, but the chalice of opportunity.”
needless to say, one of the biggest opportunities given to china is the 20xx olympic games. till now, we have used two sevenths of the preparation time. how much changes have you seen? new roads, new subway lines, public-exercising equipments with beautiful colors, large blocks of grass fields, and also lots of modern gyms which are under construction.
other than those, there are even more good effects brought to us by the olympic games that cannot be seen directly. for example, more and more people will get to know china. i’m sure the mysterious chinese culture will attract them . and the games will also do good to the economy and environment, for it is gaining the attention of foreign investors and the awareness of environmental protection is being strengthened. what is more, olympic games give a unique opportunity to inspire and educate a new generation of chinese youth with the olympic values and the olympic spirit. now that we have seen so many advances, could you even imagine us losing the holding rights?
i’ve already said a lot about the olympics and china. but i think everyone should use some time to think of this question, ”does the olympic games have any special meaning to you?”
for us, i mean the chinese youth, 20xx olympic games is a tremendous gift. because what we are waiting for is to do something significant as repaying the love given to us .the society is just like a ship, and in our dreams the captain is waving his hand and saying ”hey! come here and take the helm! ”how charming his voice is, but we have never heard of it in our true life. this morning, however, when we wake up, we will see the olympic games waving its hand. after chewing, most of us will have at least one plan about what to do for the olympic games. and mine is to be a “comforter” ----that is someone who will give comfort to others.
at the end of my speech, i hope all the preparation will go well, and everyone will show their ability to the world. let us seize opportunities and give a big smile to challenges.
good morning everybody, i’m very glad to stand here and give you a short speech. we all know that bingxin has a famous saying “we always admire the beauty of flowers but its sprout was watered by tears of struggle and rained by blood of sacrifice”. so for the majority, behind their success, are filled of sweat and tears. eagle flying in the vast firmament, must be experienced the pain of countless times fall under the cliff, then hammered out a pair of volley wings. a shinning of pearls, inevitably suffered countless body friction and numerous waves’ shock. in this view, a real successful people, and he must experienced numerous times to stand up again and agin after failed, because without sweat and tears on the life road ,no one can casually get the beautiful flowers. alfter a heavy fall shi tiesheng lost his legs, it must be a heavy blow for anyone. but he didn't lose faith in life, but use his brain and hands to show the infinite love of life;
beethoven was blind and deaf, but he still had written the "hero""destiny"nd so on a large number of music works, in his unfortunately life, he doggedly gripped the "fate of the throat. they all had a fall, but they are strong enough to stand up, fight against fate and misfortune, finally they succeed. so for each of us, wrestling is not terrible, lose confidence and courage in life is the most terribe thing. in my opionion, the sweat and tears during the life’ journey are very important for us, they hone our will, and enrich our experience. as the saying goes, how can you see the rainbow without a rainy day, while you don't work hard and not struggle, how can you gain the successful flowers. all in all, the sweat and tears on the struggling road is inevitable, don’t look for shortcuts anymore, steadfast walk every step, we will succeed in the end. so belief yourself, nothing is impossile, just do it. thank you for taking your time to listen to my speech, i hope in the near future we all can be successful.
everybody good afternoon:. first of all thank the teacher gave me a story in my own future ideal job. everyone has a dream job. my dream is to become a boss, own a company. in order to achieve my dreams, i need to find a good job, to accumulate some experience and wealth, it is the necessary things of course, in the school good achievement and rich knowledge is also very important.
good achievement and rich experience can let me work to make the right choice, have more opportunities and achievements. at the same time, communication is very important, because it determines whether my company has a good future development. so i need to exercise their communicative ability. i need to use all of the free time to learn all. because i believe, there is nothing in the world can shake my determination. you will be successful, as your own efforts. so seize the time, we have no time to waste. nothing in the world can change their patience ( confidence ).
in the dream on the road of life, everyone has his own dream. wolffy to eat the sheep, lamb is his dream; the cat to eat mouse, catch mice is his dream; ultraman monster, the maintenance of world peace is his dream. a dream, we need to be brave to pursue.
everyone should have a dream, to find a warm haven; everyone should have a dream to illuminate the road ahead, direction; everyone should have a dream, towards the other shore of success. the students in order to his dream to strive, admitted to the ideal school. company staff to get promoted, to strive, to work; national leaders to give people a better life to struggle. now that have their own dream, you got to try to achieve it. even if tired, also want to do my best to complete. there are a lot of things, as long as you a lax, it is fleeting.
confident, just can have the will to fight. bacon once said that in prosperity is not without worry and the worry, adversity is not without comfort and hope. dream journey will inevitably encounter some setbacks, as long as you don't give up, so will not give up your dreams. it has been said, it takes courage to give up more than face. if so easily say give up, so why should have? liang qichao is well said, adversity hardship, is the highest school of hone personality. yeah! adversity is a kind of scientific value, is a good scholar will not give up the opportunity to learn. faith is an unstoppable force. when you realized his dream, also not to get complacent. it will be your income in the next seconds gods are taken together. the greatest fight for dream. success requires a "how", such ability can persistent pursuit. optimism makes you on the journey to dream weavers, brilliant achievements in life.
blake said: "as fruit needs not only sunshine but cold nights and cold rain is its mature. can cultivate a person's personality needs not only joy but trial and difficulty to also." never say "impossible" to oneself, everything is possible! move forward! to achieve own dream!!!! best compare dream to flint, the more powerful it is knock, emission light is more bright.

good afternoon everybody! it's my honor to speak here and i am very glad to share my topic with all of you. today i'd like to talk about “my dream”. i do not just have one dream, in fact, i have three. they are: a healthy life, a happy family and to travel my great country.
i have always admired the long healthy life my grandparents have. they are older than 80 years of age and they are still alive and kicking! how do they do that!? my grandparents plant vegetables and grow rice themselves; even in their old age they still make food for themselves! i guess that is why they can remain healthy. more importantly they remain humble and never ask for too much from life. perhaps that makes them common, but they live a happy life. my grandmother once told me this:” i do not want to live long, only long enough for some grand children to be running around in my house”. i want to live a long, healthy and happy life just as they have.
since my graduation from primary school, until now, every time on my birthday i make the same wish. i wish my parents will not fight anymore. i am not complaining that they gave me a bad childhood, they just fight so much! i am unhappy but that does not mean they do not love me. they do! they love me with all their heart. i love my parents also; i want them to live a happy life as well.
i want to travel this great country of ours. i want to see the beauty of our country. i want to see the miracles that made this country great! i want to go from the east to west, from the north all the way down to the south! i have a dream, that one day i can travel and see my country with my family and friends! if that is not possible, seeing my country on my own is good enough also.
if i can fulfill all three of my dreams in life, then god can take me away. i would be happy, and l would have lived a full and prosperous life.
thank you everyone for listening to my dreams.
i thank you!
