What is a youth

What is a youth? Impetuous fire
What is a maid? Ice and desire
The world wags on
A rose will bloom, it then will fade
So does a youth, so does the fairest maid
Comes a time when one's sweet smile
Has its season for a while
Then love's in love with me
Some may think only to marry
Others will tease and tarry
Mine is the very best parry
Cupid he rules us all
Caper the caper, sing me the song
Death will come soon to hush us along
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall
Love is a past time and never will pall
Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall
Cupid he rules us all
A rose will bloom, it then will fade
So does a youth, so does the fairest maid

A new life has begun

(the bad english)
To finish the MA study means that you are having a lot of free time, and then you will have more chance to explore the real society, to join different clubs, to know more friends.

Also, it will let you think about what are you going to do next , you will start a new life plan, it's exciting, isn't it?

Film: Flags of Our Fathers

"Every jackass thnks he know what war is. Especially those who never been in one. We like things nice and simple, good and evil, heroes and villains.There's always plenty of both. Most of the time, they are not who we think they are."

"I finally came to the conclusion that maybe he was right. Maybe there is no such things as heroes. Maybe they are just people like my dad.

I finally came to undersand why they were so umcomfortable being called heroes. Heroes are something we creat, something we need. It's a way for us to understand what is almost incomprehensible ,how people could sacrifice so much for us.

But for my dad and these man,the risks they took, the wounds they suffered,they did that for their buddies. They have fought for their country,but they died for their friends. For the man in front,for the man beside them. And if we wish to truly honor thses man, we should remember them the way they realy were, the way my dad remembered them. "

The most romantic Chinese poem

I hold your hands
We take join in each other
Our love transcends life and death
We will grow old together

A word to Wen for her birthday

From my point of view, simplicity and purity, are the best quality for a woman. You already have them. Congratulations.

Happy birthday.

P.S I do feel the reverse cultural shock tonight when I found some peopel i don't like. A few of them are sophiscated,worldly,and over talktive, gosshipy,and pretend to considerate.oh, our long chinese culture... As usual, I couldn't hide my unpleasantness on my face.Be straightforward is my personality.
