good evening ，ladies and gentlemen：
thank you very much for choosing to e in such a cold night。today my topic is about choice and process。a research shows that a man has to make 73 choices one day。with so many choices one day， people easily get so confused and afraid of making wrong choice that they hesitate and finally miss the true part of life。 in my opinion， the following part is of much more importance than the choice。 there is no absolute right or wrong choice but wonderful or boring life， which the process makes the difference。
life is a box of chocolate，you never know what you will get。 forrest gump made no decision by and for himself but he acplished great success with his strong will in the process。 the process is not the road itself but the attitudes and feelings ，the caution， courage and persistance we have as we encounter new experience and unexpected obstacles。 take myself as an example， i changed my major when i became a postgraduate。 after the choice，days have been harsh for me。i cannot understand the new lessons at all。 for they are closely related to mathmatics which i learned nothing about before。 however wuth the belief that this is the great chance for me to experience new ideas and challenge myself，i persisted。 i asked for help from every channel and reorgonized my life。 gradually i could understand some parts and even found maths interesting。moreover， i learned to act instead of plaining。 in retrospect，the choice left no trace in my mind but the happiness and bitterness of the past four months bees an unforgetable experience in my life。
no matter what the choice is， enjoy the process。 in the process， your potential will be inspired and new discoveries，improvement and progress will e to you。 these are the most beautiful sceneries and only on the way can you see it。these make your life colorful。
there is no need and i donnot want to judge whether it right or wrong for me to be here，but i congratulate to myself for i gain and enjoy this fantastic experience。 so my dear friends，never worry about your choice and enjoy the process。 i am sure you will get something new and intersting tonight after you chose to e here。
Honorable Judges， fellow students：
Recently， ther is a heated debate in our society. The college students are the beneficiaries of a rare privilege， who receive exceptional education at extraordinary places. But will we be able to face the challenge and support ourselves against all odds? Will we be able to better the lives of others? Will we be able to accept the responsibility of building the future of our country?
The cynics say the college students are the pampered lost generation， which would cringe at the slightest discomfort. But the cynics are wrong. The college students I see are eagerly learning about how to live independently. We help each other clean the dormitory， go shopping and bargain together， and take part time jobs to supplement our pocket money.
The cynics say we care for nothing other than grades; and we neglect the need for character cultivation. But again， the cynics are wrong. We care deeply for each other， we cherish freedom， we treasure justice， and we seek truth. Last week， thousands of my fellow students had their blood type tested in order to make a contribution for the children who suffer from blood cancer.
As college students， we are adolescents at the critical turning point in our lives. We all face a fundamental choice： cynicism or faith， each will profoundly impact our future， or even the future of our country. I believe in all my fellow classmates. Though we are still inexperienced and even a little bit childish. I believe that we have the courage and faith to meet any challenge and take on our responsibilities. We are preparing to assume new responsibilities and tasks， and to use the education we have received to make our world a better place. I believe in our future.
In my 18 years of life， there have been many things. University days are the best part of them. I can never forget the days when I stepped into my university. I was impressed by its garden-like campus， its enthusiastic students and especially its learning atmosphere. I at once fell in love with it.
After the arduous military training， I get absolutely absorbed in my studies. The classes given by the teachers are excellent. They provide us with information not only from our textbooks but from many other sources as well. They easily arouse my insatiable desire to take in as much as I can.
Frankly speaking， at first I had some difficulty following the teachers. However， through my own efforts and thanks to my teachers' guidance， I made remarkable progress. Now I've benefited a lot from lectures and many other academic reports.
Learning is a long process; I'll keep exploring in the treasure house of knowledge to enrich myself. I also realize that only those who bring happiness for others can be truly happy. So I often take part in activities concerning public welfare.
Besides study and social practice， there are entertainments as well. I do body building every day， hoping to keep healthy and energetic.
Campus life is the most splendid time. But different people have different choices. The majority of students cherish their beautiful season and cherish the hope that one day they'll become outstanding. But there are indeed some students still under ignorance. They gather together for eating， drinking or playing cards. They're busy in searching for a girlfriend or a boyfriend. They forget completely about their mission as college students and the hope of their motherland.
Finally， I do hope everybody can try their best to become a worthy citizen of the country. I do hope everybody can become the backbone of our nation and make great contributions to society!
Good afternoon ，ladies and gentlemen!
I’m very honored to stand here and give you a short speech! my topic is Opportunities and Challenges。
First， I would like to know， what does your destiny offer you? Happiness， wisdom， a strong 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 2008 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 strongly。 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， 2008 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 “forter” ----that is someone who will give fort 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。
Saying goodbye to childhood，we step into another important time in the pace of young，facing new situations，dealing with different problems……
everyone has his ownunderstanding of young，it is a period of time of beauty and wonders，only after you have
experienced the sour ，sweet ，bitter and salty can you really bee a person of time of young is limitted，it may pass by without your attention，and when you discover what has happened ，it is always too ping the young well means a better time is waiting for you in the near future，or the situation may be opposite 。
having a view on these great men in the history of hunmanbeing，they all made full use of their youth time ，to do things that are useful to society，to the whole mankind，and as a cosquence ，they are remembered by later
generations，admired by do something in the time of young，although you may not get achievements as these greatmen did ，though not for the whole word，just for youeself，for those around!
the young is just like blooming flowers，they are so beautiful when blooming，they make people feel happy，but with time passing by，after they withers ，moet people think they are so it is the same with young，we are enthusiastic when we are young，then we may lose our passion when getting older and we must treasure it ，don't let the limitted time pass by ，leaving nothing of significance。
