  如果你是一滴水,你是否滋润了一寸土地?如果你是一线光,你是否照亮了一分黑暗?如果你是一颗粮食,你是否哺育了有用的生命?如果你是一颗最小的螺丝钉,你是否永远坚守着你生活的岗位上?如果你要告诉我们什么思想,你是否在日夜宣扬那最美丽的理想?你既然活着,你又是否为未来的人类的生活付出你的劳动,使世界一天天变得更美丽?我想问你,为未来带来了什么?在生活的仓库里,我们不应该只是个无穷尽的支付者。

      If you were one drop of water, would you moisten the field? If you were a ray of sunshine, would you brighten the darkness? If you were a morsel of food, would you provide others with nutrition?If you were the tiniest bolt, would you stay in place and fulfill your duty? If you want to tell others your ideals, do you preach them day and night? When you are alive do you always remember to work hard for the future lives and let the world become more beautiful day by day? I want to ask you: what do you contribute to the future? In life you must be a giver and not just a taker.
