              [00:03.83]003. Too Dear for the Whistle

              [00:15.73]When I was a child of seven years old, my friends, on a holiday, filled my pocket with coppers.

              [00:22.58]I went at once to a shop where they sold toys for children.

              [00:27.59]Being charmed with the sound of a whistle that I had seen by the way,

              [00:31.46]in the hands of another boy, I handed over all my money for one.

              [00:36.59]I then came home, and went whistling all over the house, much pleased with my wh美女和男生在床上istle,

              [00:42.54]but disturbing all the family. My brothers and sisters and cousins,

              [00:48.22]when I told of the bargain I had made, said I had given four times as much as the whistle was worth.

              [00:55.51]They put me in mind of what good things I might have bought with the rest of the money,

              [01:00.55]and laughed at me so much for my folly that I cried with vexation.

              [01:06.26]Thinking about the matter gave me more chagrin than the whistle gave me pleasure.

              [01:12.41]This, however, was afterwards of use to me, for the impression continued on my mind,

              [01:19日本劇情在線中文字幕.11]so that often, when I was tempted to buy something I did not need, I said to myself,

              [01:25.53]“Don’t give too much for the whistle,” and I saved my money.

              [01:30.47]As I grew up, came into the world, and observed the actions of men,

              [01:35.75]I thought I met with many, very many, who “gave too much for the whistle.”

              [01:42.93]When I saw some men too eager for a court favour, wasting his time at court gatherings,

              [01:48.58]giving up his rest, his liberty, his virtue, and perhaps his friends, for royal favour,

              [01:55.61]I said to myself - “This man gives too much for the whistle.”

              [02:01.40]When I saw another fond of popularity, constantly taking part in political affairs,

              [02:07.29]neglecting his own business, and ruining it by neglect, “He pays, indeed,” said I, “too dear for his whistle.”

              [02:17.59]If I knew a miser who gave up every kind of comfortable living,

              [02:21.85]all t掃黃電影he pleasure of doing good to others, all the esteem of his fellow citizens and the joys of friendship,

              [02:28.84]for the sake of gathering and keeping wealth - “Poor man,” said I,

              [02:34.05]“you pay too dear for your whistle.” When I met a man of pleasure,

              [02:39.75]who did not try to improve his mind or his fortune but merely devoted himself to having a good time,

              [02:46.31]perhaps neglecting his health, “Mistaken man,” said I, “you are providing pain for yourself,

              [02:53.50]instead of pleasure; you are paying too dear for your whistle.”

              [02:58.12]If I saw someone fond of appearance who had fine clothes, fine houses, fine furniture, fine earrings,

              [03:06.86]all above his fortune, and for which he had run into debt, and ends his career in a prison.

              [03:14.88]“Alas,” said I, “he has paid dear, very dear, for his whistle.”

              [03:22.03]In short the miseries of mankind are largely due to their putting a false value on things -

              [03:29.57]to giving “too much for their whistles”.


              [00:04.49]002. Home

              [00:14.10]What makes a home? Love and sympathy and confidence.

              [00:18.59]It is a place where kindly affections exist among all the members of the family.

              [00:23.58]The parents take good care of their children, and the children are interested in the activities of their parents.

              [00:29.85]Thus all of them are bound together by affection, and they find their home to be the cheer讓子彈飛iest place in the world.

              [00:36.95]A home without love is no more a home than a body without a soul is a man.

              [00:42.36]Every civilized person is a social being. No one should live alone. A man may lead a successful and prosperous life,

              [00:50.55]but prosperity alone can by no means insure happiness.

              [00:54.77]Many great personages in the world history had deep affections for their homes.

              [01:00.80]Your home may be poor and humble, but your duty lies there.

              [01:05.12]You should try to make it cheerful and comfortable.

              [01:08.15]The greater the difficulties, the richer will be your reward.

              [01:12.17]A ho重生軍工子弟me is more than a family dwelling.

              [01:14.90]It is a school in which people are trained for citizenship.

              [01:18.81]A man will not render good services to his country if he can do nothing good for his home;

              [01:24.25]for in proportion as he loves his home, will he love his country.

              [01:28.51]The home is the birthplace of true patriotism.

              [01:31.78]It is the secret of social welfare and national greatness. It is the basis and origin of civilization.


              [00:05.33]5.On Punctuality

              [00:11.65]A punctual person is in the habit of doing everything at the proper time and is never late in keeping an appointment.

              [00:20.59]The unpunctual man, on the other hand, never does what he has to do with the proper time.

              [00:28.28]He is always in a hurry and in the end loses both time and his good name. There is a proverb that says,

              [00:38.06]“Time flies浙江一貨車起火頭肥豬死亡 never to be recalled”. This is very true.

              [00:43.58]A lost thing may be found again, but lost time can never be regained. Time is more valuable than material things.

              [00:54.52]In fact time is life itself, and the unpunctual man is forever wasting and mismanaging his own valuable asset as well as others’.

              [01:06.46]The unpunctual man is always complaining that he finds no time to answer letters,

              [01:12.22]or to return calls, or to keep appointments promptly.

              [01:17.09]But the man who really has a great deal to do is very careful of his time and seldom complains of want of it.

              [01:26.19]He knows that he can not get through his immense amount of work unless he faithfully keeps every appointment promptly

              [01:33.59]and deal with every piece of work when it has to be attended to...

              [01:39.04]Failure to be punctual is a sign of disrespect towards others.

              [01:44.23]If a person is invited to a dinner and arrives later than expected,

              [01:49.14]he keeps all the other guests and the host waiting for him alone. This is great impoliteness.

              [01:58.33]Unpunctuality is very harmful when it comes to doing one’s duty,

              [02:03.33]whether private or public.

              [02:05.70]Imagine how it would be if those who are entrusted with important tasks

              [02:10.44]failed to be at their proper place at the appointed time.

              [02:14.67]A man who is known to be habitually unpunctual is ne歐冠新聞ver trusted by his friends or fellow men.

              [02:22.84]And the unpunctual man is a source of annoyance both to others and t錦繡未央o himself.
