Write an email to the editor of your local newspaper, stating your point of view on reading extensively.
I have been reading your newspaper for many years with great enthusiasm and interest. Now I would like to render my own idea on reading extensively.
Nowadays few of us read extensively after we leave school. This tendency is rather disturbing, for one should know that reading extensively are no less necessary to one’s mental life than fresh air to one’s physical life. From reading extensively, we can derive companionship, experience and instruction. First and foremost, a good book is our faithful friend. It can increase our contentment when we are cheerful and happy, and lessen our pain when we are sad or lonely. Furthermore, reading extensively can also offer us a wide range of experiences.
Though with the advent of TV and Internet, books are no longer read as extensively as they once were, nothing can replace the role that reading extensively plays in our lives.
Write an essay of 160-200 words based on the following drawing. In your essay,you should
1)describe the drawing briefly.
2)explain its intended meaning, and
3)give you comments.
If given the choice, a great many people would change at least one aspect of their appearance. As is depicted in the drawing, a young lady is requesting a doctor to give her a straighter nose, bigger lips, smaller chin, slimmer figure, and so on. One option that has gained tremendous popularity in recent decades is plastic surgery, the branch of surgery dealing with therapeutic or cosmetic reformation of body issue.
Firstly, one’s appearance is the God’s blessing, and has been one part of our body. After breast enlargement surgery, many women look sexier than before. However, many of them are found mammary gland disease. The more serious effect is that they risk being unable to breast feed. Secondly, the advocating for such a practice will mislead people in the judgment of beauty. The concept of beauty is quite rich in its content. It should include many virtues like honesty, diligence, and so on, which should be the real mainstream of our spiritual life. The practice and some contests about man-made beauty will confuse those who are to develop correct concept of beauty.
Concerning the above possible harms the practice may bring about, we are strongly against it and advocate seeking true and natural beauty. Besides, people, especially women, should lay more attention on the cultivation of their inner hearts. The inner beauty outweighs the outside beauty in the long run.
