good afternoon, my dear friends.
i am very happy to meet you here.it is my great honor to communicate with you at such a special occation.first of all,please allow me to express my appreciation to you all to listion to me.
i am proud of being a college student.the collegelife is fresh,new teachers, new classmates and new friends. i like the friendship, and their wide knowledge and opening mind. the grand library, school buildings and wide playground attrattde me very much.my college life is better than i expected, i can do anything i like. in the college we can not only learn the professional knowledge,but also develop our comprehensive abilities.if we can make full use of the period,we can learn many useful things.besides,we should have the active attitude to our life,do a contributionto the society.
collegelife is the most precious time in our life.most of us want to become an outstanding man. but there are some students still waste their time. they get together for eating, drinking or playing cards. they're busy in searching for a girlfriend or a boyfriend. they completely forget their task as college students.
finally, i hope everybody can try their best to become a worthy person to our country, and make great contributions to the society!
ladies and gentlemen , good afternoon! i’m very glad to stand here and give you a short speech. today my topic is “youth”. i hope you will like it , and found the importance in your youth so that more cherish it.
first i want to ask you some questions: 1、do you know what is youth?
2、how do you master your youth? youth
youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind ; it is not rosy cheeks , red lips and supple knees, it is a matter of the emotions : it is the freshness ; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life . youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite , for adventure over the love of ease. this often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20 . nobody grows old merely by a number of years . we grow old by deserting our ideals.
years wrinkle the skin , but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul . worry , fear , self –distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust . whether 60 of 16 , there is in every human being ‘s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living . in the center of your heart and my heart there’s a wireless station : so long as it receives messages of beauty , hope ,cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long as you are young .
when the aerials are down , and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old ,even at 20 , but as long as your aerials are up ,to catch waves of optimism , there is hope you may die young at 80. thank you!
Students， guests ， teachers and Honorable Judges
Good morning !
my great pleasure to share my dream with you today. my dream is to become a teacher.
As the whole world has its boundaries， limits and freedom coexist in our life。 I don’t expect complete freedom， which is impossible。 I simply have a dream that supports my life。
I dream that one day， I could escape from the deep sea of thick schoolbooks and lead my own life。 With my favorite fictions， I lie freely on the green grass， smelling the spring， listening to the wind singing， breathing the fresh and cool air and dissolve my soul in nature at last。 Simple and short enjoyment can bring me great satisfaction。
I dream that one day the adults could throw their prejudice of comic and cartoon away。 They could keep a lovely heart that can share sorrow and happiness with us while watching cartoon or doing personal things。 That’s the real communication of heart to heart。
I have the belief that my dreams should come true。 I am looking forward to some day coming when I am like a proud eagle， which flies to the blue and vast sky。
I have a dream that one day every vally shall be exalted， every hill and mountain shall be made low， the rough places will be made plain， and the crooked places will be made straight， and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed， and all flesh shall see it together。
Wow， what a dream it has been for Martin Luther King。 But the changing world seems telling me that people gradually get their dreams lost somehow in the process of growing up， and sometimes I personally find myself saying goodbye unconsciously to those distant childhood dreams。
However， we meed dreams。 They nourish our spirit; they represent possibility even when we are dragged down by reality。 They keep us going。 Most successful people are dreamers as well as ordinary people who are not afraid to think big and dare to be great。 When we were little kids， we all dreamed of doing something big and splashy， something significant。 Now what we need to do is to maintain them， refresh them and turn them into reality。 However， the toughest part is that we often have no ideas how to translate these dreams into actions。 Well， just start with concrete objectives and stick to it。 Don’t let the nameless fear confuse the eye and confound our strong belief of future。 Through our talents， through our wits， through our endurance and through our creativity， we will make it。
Hold fast to dreams， for if dreams die， life is a broken—winged bird that cannot fly。 Hold fast to dreams， for when dreams go， life is a barren field frozen with snow。 So my dear friends， think of your old and maybe dead dreams。 Whatever it is， pick it up and make it alive from today。
Good morning, it's my honor to stand here and give you this speech about dreams. There I want to start my speech with two short stories.
The first story happened when I was in primary school, I wrote in my composition that my dream was to be a teacher when I grew up. Meanwhile, what my classmates wrote about their dreams was that he or she wanted to be a doctor, a scientist or an astronaut.
The second story happened at my first year in university. At the careers planning class, when the teacher asked about our dreams, one of my classmates stood up and said, “I want to be a farmer, because I grow up in a farmer's family and I love to be engaged in agriculture.” When he sat down, everyone clapped.
These two stories happened during my growth process, from which I got my understanding of dreams. When I was a child I believed that a dream must be a big dream, but when I grow up I find this big dream is so far away from me, I know little about it, and I have done nothing to achieve it, so it's not my dream. My classmate's answer let me know a real dream is not just about being a great man, or doing a great job, it's about what you really want to be, and are willing to try every effort to pursue it.
Because what makes a dream valuable is not just about the result, it's also about the process, the process when you are trying, when you are struggling, when you failed and restarted again and again, because of the process, dreams can be meaningful and become your wealth.
