On May 25, Yi Wansheng, a teacher from International High School, gave a speech under the national flag this week with the title of "Do not take good as a small thing and do not take evil as a small thing" :
Good morning, dear teachers and classmates!
The topic of my speech today under the national flag is "do not take good as small, do not take evil as small". This sentence was an exhortation and warning from Emperor Uncle Liu to his son in his will. It reads: "Do not do evil when it is small; do not do good when it is small. Only virtuous, can be subject to people." The purpose is to encourage his son to make a difference. Do not do a good thing because it is small; do not do a bad thing because it is small. The accumulation of small good can become a great good for the benefit of the whole world, while the accumulation of small evil can be enough to "ruin the country".
As the foreign philosopher Hani Rubin once said, "Watch your thoughts, they become your words; Watch your words, for they become deeds. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. So if you analyze this passage from the perspective of cause and effect, then you can conclude that your thoughts determine your fate. "Don't be petty about the good and don't be petty about the evil" is like a warning motto to keep us in mind. Even the smallest act of kindness is a positive, positive thought, and when these small positive thoughts accumulate, they can be translated into good behavior habits and a healthy positive personality. In the same way, even the smallest act of evil is negative, negative thinking, and when that negative thinking accumulates, it makes you a negative person all over. This is the quantitative change causes the qualitative change, the situation before and after the influence, once formed habits and character, will have a great influence on us.
To do good, you don't have to give a lot of money or material help. You don't have to help others to do good. A kind smile, an encouraging look in the eyes, a kind greeting, a silent company, can make people like spring breeze, make lost pessimistic life confidence; Make the pain and despair of the people feel warm, pain relief; To see the light in the gloom and confusion. These are all good deeds.
In life, as long as you have good intentions, you can make a Dashram anywhere. Most of the time, it's just a matter of lifting a finger. Forget to close the faucet, for instance, turn off the others conveniently pick up of the waste thrown by the others, to answer students who have learning difficulties, strive for the guy say come on, a door for disabled people, let the road, a hand for carrying heavy things, leave for nocturnal light, a little water to thirsty people or animals, to hungry tramp a little food, Move stones that fall from the road, etc. A small act is a great kindness. A small good deed can lead to more good connections and convenience for others, making them happy. Merit, in the birth of good thoughts, inadvertently, on the product.
In fact, kindness is just a habit, he should have everyone, but not everyone remember. I hope you can always be kind in the future study and life, do more good deeds, do more good deeds, more good fate, and finally achieve good results.
