Learn to give up wisely
Never give up has been accepted by many people as a positive life attitude. Admittly persistence often plays an important role in one success. However,in many cases to give up might be wiser than to persist blindly. The following reasons can support this argument.
Firstly,sometimes our goal may be unrealistic. If we insist on it blindly, it will finally bring us nothing but failure. At this time,what we should do is give up the orignal goal and reset a more pratical one.
Secondly,not all persistence can bring deserving results. For a very simple example if we keep waiting in line for hours, only to have a luncheon restaurant may be it is unwise.
Finally, to give up wisely does not mean admitting failure. Instead,it does mean a new hope of success.
Considering the above mentioned, we can come to the conclusion that to give up wisely is a kind of more mature life attitude. Though giving up sometimes is painful and costly,in the long run what we gain will definitely far out weight what we lose.
a witness of a theft incident
Yesterday I witnessed a theft incident on my way home.The thelf was so that it left me a very deep impression...It was in the rush hour when many people would buy tickets the subway station.A woman took her purse out and pay for the ticket and then she put her purse back into her bag and turn to leave when a middle aged man rushed pass her muttering:"excuse me ", she didn't feel unusual and went into station indeed her purse had been stolen by that man. To our surprise the thelf seems not to be nervous at all and even began to look others up and down. Maybe he was searching for the next target.At that time,some persons including me witnessed the process but unfortunately no one dared to warn that woman.
This incident makes me ashamed and leave me a deep thought:the pickpocket has posed a great threat to residents and visitors' property safety. Undoutedly, it is a urgent thing to take action to prevent pickpocket .However, it cannot dependent on the police only ,instead it needs our common efforts .We connot shut our eyes and mouths to the pickpocket anymore .It should be kept in our minds that our forces are far beyond these thelves.
A complaint letter to one neighbour
Dear Mr. John ,
I'm one of your neighbours.And I'm now writing and behave of the resident 's association to complain about your making noises.You disterb others' normal lifes.
Since you moved in the building three months ago we have received many complaints about your bad behaviors. According to the complaints you have shown very little consideration for the other residents of the building.For example ,you often turned on the music very loudly till late.Furthermore every weekend your extremely noisey partys last until the early hours of the next morning so that other residents can not have a good rest.Much words though some residents have talked to you about the noise you made your behavior has no improvement.
A harmony community's life needs every resident's effert.Of course you are no exception.We hope you can realise and stop your improper behavior as soon as possible.Unless you do something to improve the present situation,we will have no other choice but to take legal action.
