Dear teacher, dear classmate:
Hello everyone! Today, the theme of our country’s speech is “Read Ten Thousand Books, Travel Ten Thousand Miles” Books are the ocean of knowledge, “Read Ten Thousand Books”, fully absorb the essence of the book, will be able to acquire rich knowledge. It is important to read a lot of books, but to truly comprehend the connotation of the knowledge learned, it is necessary to “travel thousands of miles”. The book may be old-fashioned, but the world is changing with each passing day. It is necessary to fully combine reading and practice in order to truly increase knowledge and enrich oneself. Reading and doing are complementary. Reading allows us to understand the changes in the ancient world, feel the sorrows and joys of literati and writers, and improve our cultural heritage. Practice allows us to understand the changes in today’s society, feel the variety of beautiful mountains and rivers, and broaden our horizons. Only by combining reading and doing can we understand the past and the present, and then we can better understand the emotions expressed by Qianke Sao people in the mountains and rivers. Only “reading” but not “doing”, can only talk on paper like Zhao Kuo, and in the end the bamboo basket is empty. Reading thousands of books is like seeing the colorful world from a window, but after all, you have to go out to appreciate the real world.
It is difficult to understand Du Fu’s determination to climb to the top after only reading “I will be the top of the mountain, and the mountains are small at a glance.” but also to experience the poet’s feelings. Reading allows us to better experience the beauty of landscapes in practice, and practice allows us to better understand the feelings of literati in reading. In your spare time, make a cup of tea, turn the pages of the book, and comprehend the knowledge in the book; or find extraordinary art in the extraordinary scenery, see the beautiful scenery of nature, and increase your extracurricular knowledge. “Everything is self-satisfied” is what it says.
This concludes my speech under the flag, thank you all!
