先週の高校生との英語でとりあげたtopicがおもしろかったので、ちょっと紹介。英文日記で紹介しているので、そのまま英語で・・まちがっているところもあるとおもいますが・・お許しを。


At a high school students class, we took an interesting topic.
Do you have a philosophy that has helped you lead a happier life?

For two students, it seems difficult to discuss about, because they study and do usual activities very hard except doing house chores.

So I mentioned some example talks from my textbook.

-------------
"If we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose --somehow we win out." This is a quote by Ronald Reagan, the former US president. I believer our efforts will bear fruit if we continue to work hard.
-------------
They said "Now we focus on passing an entrance exam to college, but we are not sure what is the goal, just we try to catch our goal which we see near, and we believe such small steps lead us to a happier life".


------------
Woody Allen says (well, well, he is a very famous actor because even me I know of him, but he seems too old for them to know of ) "It's important to have some laughs, but you've got to suffer a little too, because otherwise you miss the whole point to life." Although I don't know what's in store for me, I will live through my hardships, however difficult they may be.
----------
They said, "we understood what he said, anyway it means probably pleasure is the source of pain, and pain is the source of pleasure".


---------
"Where there is will, there is a way", I love this proverb and keep this in mind when I try to do something new and challenging.
---------
They said, "we know this proverb, and another familiar proverb is "Rome was not built in a day".


-------
"My philosophy in life is based on the Latin words carpe diem meaning "seize the day." We only live once, so I think we should live our lives to the fullest and not lament, "I wish I had done this or that".
-----------
They said, "Anyway we should apply ourselves to the job at hand.


All examples seemed to say "study hard".
So we watched this video.
