Ladies and Gentlemen:I am honored to be standing here to deliver a speech entitled “Friendship”.
The hero’s mother in the movie Forrest Gump says, “Life is a box of chocolates”. I would say that life, with friendship, true friendship particularly, is sweet as honey. It is moonlight cast on the tranquility of a lake on a mid-fall night, enchanting to the soul. It is morning dew on rose petals, pleasant and pleasing to the sense of sight. It is cosy fire on a bitterly cold winter night, warming the heart.
But as Helen Foster Snow remarks, “Friendship is no common weed that grows along the way. It’s highly cultivated and watered day by day.” Like an infant, it needs constant care; like a young tree, it can not be left to the tender mercies of severe weather. True friendship consists more in “a friend in need” to give to than “a friend in need” to take from. A true friend is a person who can be turned to, who is ready to lend a listening ear, who is willing to share feelings.
Friendship should be mutual, otherwise it will be subject to withering like plant in drought. Like genuine love, true friendship has to be a two way experience. Be it the former or the latter, if one expects to be solely on the receiving end, then s/he will be too optimistic about it: it is hoping against hope that it will last. Love or friendship of this kind is dangerous, as it is contaminated by the dark matter in human nature – selfishness.
Not infrequently does friendship need to be cared and tended, fostered and nourished, so that it will “stand at every crossroad, so good and strong and true”.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
Today I want to talk with you.Yes,just talking,not stiff speaking.
My topic is “friendship”.But,at first ,I want to talk with you about love.Many of us have vision it in college.The special feeling in the memory of the four years is always pure and beautiful.
You may have asked what the “love”is on earth? In my opinion, Love is a sense of responsibility!Known to care for others, and this feeling, no matter what the result is ,must be a life-long memorable event.
My friends often consult me about their emotional problems.And they spend too much time on their lover.Naturally,they igored their friends.
I have received a message from one of my good friends.She said: “ if A is equals to 1 ,B is equals to 2,C is epuals to 3,and so on..
Then L+O+V+E=54,but F+R+I+E+N+D+S+H+I+P=108!
So friendship is twice stronger than love!” Now I’d love to share my experience with all of you.
Last summer vocation,I had a car accident,and had to be in hospital,I felt boring and painful,because I could do nothing but stay in bed. It’s my friends who came to see me ,chatted with me ,encouraged me, helped me get through the hardtime.
It is a common saying that love is a lamp, while friendship is the shadow. When the lamp is off,you will find the shadow everywhere. Friend is who can give you strength at last.
Finally let's pray together now ,that one day, all of us could find the person we want to find, and could enjoy a real beautiful friendship in our lives. Let's pray the flower of friendship between our friends and us would always bloom brightly in our hearts. That’s all .Thank you!
