英语演讲稿：The Road to Happiness
It is a commonplace among moralists that you cannot get happiness by pursuing it. This is only true if you pursue it unwisely. Gamblers at Monte Carlo are pursuing money, and most of them lose it instead, but there are other ways of pursuing money, which often succeed. So it is with happiness. If you pursue it by means of drink, you are forgetting the hangover. Epicurus pursued it by living only in congenial society and eating only dry bread, supplemented by a little cheese on feast days. His method proved successful in his case, but he was a valetudinarian, and most people would need something more vigorous. For most people, the pursuit of happiness, unless supplemented in various ways, is too abstract and theoretical to be adequate as a personal rule of life. But I think that whatever personal rule of life you may choose it should not, except in rare and heroic cases, be incompatible with happiness. If you look around at the men and women whom you can call happy, you will see that they all have certain things in common.
The most important of these things is an activity which at most gradually builds up something that you are glad to see coming into existence. Women who take an instinctive pleasure in their children can get this kind of satisfaction out of bringing up a family. Artists and authors and men of science get happiness in this way if their own work seems good to them. But there are many humbler forms of the same kind of pleasure. Many men who spend their working life in the city devote their weekends to voluntary and unremunerated toil in their gardens, and when the spring comes, they experience all the joys of having created beauty. The whole subject of happiness has, in my opinion, been treated too solemnly.
It had been thought that man cannot be happy without a theory of life or a religion. Perhaps those who have been rendered unhappy by a bad theory may need a better theory to help them to recover, just as you may need a tonic when you have been ill. But when things are normal a man should be healthy without a tonic and happy without a theory. It is the simple things that really matter. If a man delights in his wife and children, has success in work, and finds pleasure in the alternation of day and night, spring and autumn, he will be happy whatever his philosophy may be. If, on the other hand, he finds his wife fateful, his children’s noise unendurable, and the office a nightmare; if in the daytime he longs for night, and at night sighs for the light of day, then what he needs is not a new philosophy but a new regimen–a different diet, or more exercise, or what not. Man is an animal, and his happiness depends on his physiology more than he likes to think. This is a humble conclusion, but I cannot make myself disbelieve it. Unhappy businessmen, I am convinced, would increase their happiness more by walking six miles every day than by any conceivable change of philosophy.
英语演讲稿：I have a dream
Every one has his own dream. When I was a little kid ， my dream was even to have a candy shop of my own .But now ，when I am 16 years old ，standing here ，my dreams have already changed a lot.
I have got quite different experience from other girls. While they were playing toys at home， while they were dreaming to be the princesses in the story .I was running in the hard rain， jumping in the heavy snow， pitching in the strong wind. Nothing could stop me ，because of a wonderful call from my heart — to be an athlete. Yeah ，of course ，I’m an athlete， I’m so proud of that all the time .
When I was 10 years old ，I became a shot-put athlete. The training was really hard ，I couldn’t bear the heavy shot in my hands .But I always believe that “God only help those who help themselves”. During those hard days， I find I was growing more quickly than others of the same age. To be an athlete is my most correct choice. But， I quite like my team after entering high school because of a silly excuse. I really didn’t want to stop my sports career anyway.
Today I say to you my friends that even though I must face the difficulties of yesterday ，today and tomorrow .I still have a dream .It is a dream deeply rooted in my soul.
I have a dream that one day， I can run， jump and pitch just like I used to be.
I have a dream that one day， I can go back to my dream sports and join the national team.
I have a dream that one day ，I can stand on the highest place at the Olympic games. With all the cameras pointing at me. I will tell everyone that I’m so proud to be a Chinese athlete!
This is my hope .This is the faith that I continue my steps with!!!
With this faith， I will live though the strong wind and heavy rain ，never give up !
So let victory ring from my heart， from all of you. When we allow victory to ring .I must be the one!
In my imagination， I’m a bird ，a magical bird. I carry my dreams all with me by my big wings. I fly though the mountains ，though the forests ，over the sea， to the sun ，the warmest place in the aerospace!
Every night ，I have a dream ，I see a girl —smiling~
That’s all thank you!
英语演讲稿：How to say future
Man’s life is a process of growing up, actually I’m standing here is a growth. If a person’s life must constituted by various choices, then I grow up along with these choices. Once I hope I can study in a college in future, however that’s passed, as you know I come here, now I wonder what the future holds for (= what will happen to) me.
When I come to this school, I told to myself: this my near future, all starts here. Following I will learn to become a man, a integrated man, who has a fine body, can take on important task, has independent thought, an open mind, intensive thought, has the ability to judge right and wrong, has a perfect job. Once my teacher said :” you are not sewing, you are stylist; never forget which you should lay out to people is your thought, not craft.” I will put my personality with my interest and ability into my study, during these process I will combine learning with doing. If I can achieve this “future”, I think that I really grow up. And I deeply believe kindred, good-fellowship and love will perfection and happy in the future.
How to say future? Maybe it’s a nice wish. Lets make up our minds, stick to it and surely well enjoy our life.
