  Barcelona is regarded as Spain‘s second city,behind capital Madrid. The city is steeped in history,Barcelona was founded by Carthaginians and according to tradition,its name was derived from the great Barker family of ancient Carpage. After numerous different conquers,including the Romans and the Moores that ravaged the city,the Argons made Catalonia,of which Barcelona was the capital. Strong and prosperous. Since the 1970s,the city has reasserted its Catalon background. But it wasn’t until the summer Olympics in 1992 did Barcelona became the modern,vibrant city that it still is today.

  The Importance of Being Honest 假如没了诚信 我一天也不会快乐

  In the busy city of New York,such an astonishing thing that ever happened.

  On a Friday night,a poor young artist stood at the gate of the subway station,playing his violin. Though the music was great,people were quickly going home for the weekend. In this case,many of them slowed down their paces and put some money into the hat of the young man.

  The next day,the young artist came to the gate of the subway station,and put his hat on the ground gracefully. Different than the day before,he took out a large piece of paper and laid it on the ground and put some stones on it. Then he adjusted the violin and began playing. It seemed more pleasant to listen to.

  Before long,the young violinist was surrounded with people,who were all attracted by the words on that paper. It said,“Last night,a gentleman named George Sang put an important thing into my hat by mistaken. Please come to claim it soon.”

  Seeing this,it caused a great excitement and people wondered what it could be. After about half an hour,a middle-aged man ran there in a hurry and rushed through the crowd to the violinist and grabbed his shoulders and said,“Yes,it's you. You did come here. I knew that you're an honest man and would certainly come here.”

  The young violinist asked calmly,“Are you Mr. George Sang?”

  The man nodded. The violinist asked,“Did you lose something?”

  “Lottery. It's lottery,”said the man.

  The violinist took out a lottery ticket on which George Sang's name was seen.“Is it?”he asked.

  George nodded promptly and seized the lottery ticket and kissed it,then he danced with the violinist.

  The story turned out to be this:George Sang is an office clerk. He bought a lottery ticket issued by a bank a few days ago. The awards opened yesterday and he won a prize of $500,000. So he felt very happy after work and felt the music was so wonderful,that he took out 50 dollars and put in the hat. However the lottery ticket was also thrown in. The violinist was a student at an Arts College and had planned to attend advanced studies in Vienna. He had booked the ticket and would fly that morning. However when he was cleaning up he found the lottery ticket. Thinking that the owner would return to look for it,he cancelled the flight and came back to where he was given the lottery ticket.

  Later someone asked the violinist:“At that time you were in needed to pay the tuition fee and you had to play the violin in the subway station every day to make the money. Then why didn't you take the lottery ticket for yourself?”

  The violinist said,“Although I don't have much money,I live happily;but if I lose honesty I won't be happy forever.”

  Through our lives,we can gain a lot and lose so much. But being honest should always be with us. If we bear ourselves in a deceptive and dishonest way,we may succeed temporarily. However,from the long-term view,we will be a loser. Such kind of people are just like the water on the mountain. It stands high above the masses at the beginning,but gradually it comes down inch by inch and loses the chance of going up.

















  Dear son 父亲给儿子的一封信

  Dear son……


  The day that you see me old and I am already not,have patience and try to understand me…


  If I get dirty when eating…if I can not dress…have patience. Remember the hours I spent teaching it to you.如果我吃的脏兮兮,如果我不会穿衣服……



  If,when I speak to you,I repeat the same things thousand and one times…do not interrupt me…listen to me如果,当我一再重复述说同样的事情…不要打断我,听我说…。

  When you were small,I had to read to you thousand and one times the same story until you get to sleep…

  When I do not want to have a shower,neither shame me nor scold me…



  Remember when I had to chase you with thousand excuses I invented,in order that you wanted to bath…

  When you see my ignorance on new technologies…give me the necessary time and not look at me with your mocking smile…


  当你看到我对新科技的无知,给我一点时间,不要挂着嘲弄的微笑看着我I taught you how to do so many things…to eat good,to dress well…to confront life…



  When at some moment I lose the memory or the thread of our conversation…let me have the necessary time to remember…and if I cannot do it,do not become nervous…as the most important thing is not my conversation but surely to be with you and to have you listening to me…




  If ever I do not want to eat,do not force me. I know well when I need to and when not.当我不想吃东西时,不要勉强我。

  我清楚知道该什么时候进食When my tired legs do not allow me walk……


  …give me your hand…the same way I did when you gave your first steps.扶我一把…。


  And when someday I say to you that I do not want to live any more…

  that I want to die…do not get angry…some day you will understand…



  Try to understand that my age is not lived but survived.试着了解我已是风烛残年,来日可数。

  Some day you will discover that,despite my mistakes,I always wanted the best thing for you and that I tried to prepare the way for you……


  当我靠近你时不要觉得感伤,生气或无奈You must not feel sad,angry or impotent for seeing me near you. You must be next to me,try to understand me and to help me as I did it when you started living. Help me to walk…help me to end my way with love and patience. I will pay you by a smile and by the immense love I have had always for you.你要紧挨着我,如同我当初帮着你展开人生一样的了解我,帮我…。


  我将用微笑和我始终不变无边无际的爱来回报你I love you son…

  我爱你孩子Your father你的父亲
