  The ancient culture of China is one of the great treasures of human civilization. In the photo above, a foreign lady is pleasantly appreciating a traditional Chinese handcraft in a museum. At the same time,it seems that the little handiwork is smiling as well.

  In my opinion, the traditional Chinese culture is not only certain to survive, but, in fact, is destined to thrive and prosper. One factor that has already begun to contribute to the preservation of Chinese traditional culture is its commercialization. Another reason that the future of China‘s ancient culture can be considered "safe" is the active efforts to protect it on the part of the Chinese government. Finally,the culture of China is buttressed and supported by widespread and growing international interest in China and its traditions.

  For China, as for any other rapidly developing country, there is a danger that age-old customs and traditions may become lost in the shadows of modernization. If tai chi chuan, kung-fu or Peking opera ever perished from the earth, it would be a tragedy of immeasurable proportions. Fortunately, as a result of successful commercialization efforts, unwavering government support and growing interests overseas, the future of China’s traditional culture looks brighter and more secure than ever before.

  Over the course of thousands of years, the Chinese people have created their own unique customs and traditions, and passed them on from one generation to the next.在几千年的历程中,中国人民创造了他们独特的习俗和传统,并把它们一代代传给后人。

  In recent decades, however, some people have become increasingly concerned that China‘s cultural heritage could become marginalized or even disappear entirely. 然而最近几十年来,一些人已越来越担心中国的文化遗产可能会边缘化或者完全消失。

  Whether through kung fu schools in New York, the United States or Chinese calligraphy exhibits at the Museum in Paris, France, many people around the world now have the chance to learn about China’s 5,000-year-old culture, ensuring that its reach and influence extend well beyond China’s own boarders.无论是通过美国纽约的武术学校,还是法国巴黎博物馆的书法展,现在世界上很多人都有机会了解中国五千年的文化。

  As is shown in the picture above, raising up his head, a young boy is holding a glorious sun with his firm hand. The caption indicates that “With dreams, our heart can fly high; with flight, our dreams will not be far away”.

  Some people think that dream is good for success while others argue that it is not so good because it may get people unrealistic. Obviously, dream is necessary in our life only if it is encouraging and realistic. First and foremost, there is power in dream. The dream can lead people to the path they want to go on and it gives us passion. The dream can be enthusiastic love of life that puts sparkle in our eyes, a lilt in our steps and smoothes the wrinkles from our souls. Furthermore, we are born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder as anyone knows who has ever seen an infant’s delight at the jingle of keys or the scurrying of a beetle. It is this childlike wonder and dream that gives enthusiastic people such a youthful air, no matter how old they are. Lastly, people with dreams also love what they do, regardless of money or power or title.

  In short, God gives each bird its food, but he does not throw it into its nest. Wherever you want to go, just cherish your precious dreams and let your dream be realized.

  Some people are committed to their dreams and work hard to achieve their goals.有些人终于他们的梦想并努力工作来实现目标。

  We need to live each moment wholeheartedly, with all our senses so that we can find pleasure in the fragrance of backyard, the crayon picture of a child, and the enchanting beauty of a rainbow. 我们需要全心全意地享受每时每刻,因此我们可以享受后院的芳香、小孩的蜡笔画以及彩虹迷人的魅力。

  If we cannot do what we love as a full-time career, we can do it as a part-time vocation, like the head of state who paints, the nun who runs marathons and the executive who handcrafts furniture.如果我们不能把我们热爱的事物变成全职,我们可以业余时间来做,正如喜欢绘画的国家领导人,跑马拉松的修女和手工制作家具的管理者。
