The topic of my speech today is “Being honest and trustworthy, Being practical”.
I remember someone once said, “There are only two things in the world that can cause a deep shock to the heart. One is the starry sky above us, the other is the lofty morality in our hearts.” Today, we look at the sky, the sky is still clear, the heart of those high moral law, some need us to call again. Honesty is one of them.
Yan Shu was a famous writer and politician in the Northern Song Dynasty. At the age of 14, he was recommended to the court by local officials as a “child prodigy”. He could have gotten an official post without taking the imperial examination, but he did not. Instead, he took the exam. It just so happened that the exam question was the one he had done. In this way, he easily stood out from thousands of candidates. However, Yan Shu did not feel complacent about it. On the contrary, he told the emperor the truth when he accepted the emperor’s reexamination. The emperor discussed with his ministers a more difficult topic and asked Yan Shu to write a composition in the hall. As a result, his article was praised by the emperor again. Compared to some students in order to get a better result on the favoritism fraud, plagiarism and sneaking, we should feel ashamed.
There is a German student with excellent academic performance. After graduation, I found myself looking for a job everywhere and was often frustrated. The reason was simple, because his records showed that he had been caught evading a bus ticket three times. In Singapore, someone has a ticket but can’t get on the plane. It is shown that the books he borrowed have not been returned to the library. It can be seen that good faith is very important for everyone. Integrity, the company can hire you; Good faith, the bank can lend you money; Integrity, to get the trust of others; Integrity, in order to integrate into the society, seek survival and development. Honesty is everywhere, everywhere.
Lansheng Yougu, not for mo but not aromatic; The gentleman does not stop for ignorance.
Integrity is not only a conduct, but also a responsibility; Is not only a moral, but also a principle; Integrity is a noble force of personality, it is the traditional virtue of the Chinese nation, but also the basis of doing things.
Honesty is the most simple quality, it is not as brave as admired, it is not as smart as admired, but who has thought, without integrity of the brave may become violence, there is no integrity of the smart is likely to become cunning. If compare our life to a river, the good faith is the water in the river, people appreciate the Banks of the river sight-seeing at ordinary times, covet the aquatic plants in the river fish and shrimp, who want to protect the water in the river in the past, don’t let the water drain, you know, there is no water in the river, the rest of the only dry river, similarly, people without good faith, the rest of the emptiness of life.
Good faith if water, let good faith sweet spring of our life!
My speech is over! Thank you!
