失衡的天秤

March 31, 2015 0

天秤似乎是種源遠流長的東西,它的用途當然就是要衡量兩端之物是否重量均等,讓人量出個「公平」。只是現今很多天秤都失衡了,因為一些人的私心,寧願掩眼不顧。

近年來人都不禁反思香港的立法權和司法權究竟是否權力均等,以致真能達致互相牽制?在政治主導的情形下,我想天秤已無疑地側重了政權。環境保育與經濟發展之間的爭論,亦源於有人察覺到平衡兩者的天秤失衡了,於是有被標籤為正義一方的環保團體和邪惡的發展商抗爭的出現。

以上的天秤失衡現象都屬於外在的失衡,可是實則上人類常承受着裏裏外外的失衡。

年少的生活主線多以學習為主,但社會的各誘惑:明星、潮流服飾、智能手機、電子遊戲、交友網站……耗費的盡是時間和金錢。只.........

根深不怕風搖動

March 31, 2015 0

「經歷這件事後,我對「根深不怕風搖動,樹正無愁月影斜」這句話有了更深刻的體會。根據以上描述,試以你的經歷和體會,寫作文章一篇。

這夜,我與志同道合的朋友走在泳池旁的小路上,沿途享受着輕輕划過我臉頰的涼風,又與天上皎潔的明月互望,然後與朋友有一句沒一句地拋出腦海中有關月亮的詩句,好不暢快。我願意將時間止住,留住這份美好。但事實上,皓月微風、友人相伴並非叫我沉醉於動人的此刻的唯一原因。是發生在兩年前的那件事,叫今天這本來平凡簡單的一切,變得更可愛可貴。

兩年前的炎夏,我懷着剛成為大學生的亢奮,報名參加了所屬學系的迎新營。入營那天,我的心情可謂興奮又緊張快要結識到未來四年伴我苦讀的同窗了,但願不是.........

又是這個夢

March 31, 2015 0

餐廳的角落有一條不知通往何處的樓梯。與平日不一樣的是,我踏上黑暗而窄小的梯級時,心中竟無一絲怯懦。爽快地踏過梯階之後,眼前竟出現了一道日式家居中的走廊,明亮整潔。經過一道又一道普通不過的滑門後,一道如科幻電影中的實驗室鐵門映入眼簾,與四周環境格格不入。不待我按下任何按鈕,笨重的鐵門已經徐徐滑升,我看見了實驗室的內貌   空氣中瀰漫着一股冰冷,如醫院病房般的氣味,乾淨得不自然。詭異的藍光照在兩側的入牆櫃上,櫃子擺滿了一個個盛着人體內臟和殘肢的玻璃罐。我愈看愈興奮,但我知道更精彩的尚在前面。我用輕快的步伐走到實驗室中央的一張手術檯,再伸出因亢奮而不住抖震的手,準備執起手術刀,解剖那具放在手術.........

聆聽

March 31, 2015 0

「恭維是蓋着鮮花的深淵,批評是防止跌倒的拐杖。」試就個人對這句話的體會,以「聆聽」為題,寫一篇文章。

「你的歌聲簡直就是天籟之聲,這次沒得獎,肯定是那些評委水平低,不懂欣賞。」甲阿諛奉承的說。

「你的音準還沒抓好,要拿獎其實還有一段距離。」乙坦誠的說。

兩句話,出自兩個下屬。如果你是他們的上司,你會想聽哪句話?我想必是前者。人,無論是男女老幼都喜愛聽「合心意」的話。批評、指摘,每每都會被耳朵自動過濾,仿佛聽不見就是不存在。可是,恭維的說話聽多了,耳朵裡還剩下多少真實?

聽到聲音,再聽其內容,才是真正的聆聽。但人面對恭維的說話時,抵抗力及分析力頓時消失得無影無蹤。上司聽到下屬的恭維說話時就會不禁沾.........

面對逆境與挫折的自處之道

March 31, 2015 0

有一頭驢,掉進了一個很深很深的廢井裏。主人權衡了一下,認為救他上來不划算,轉身便走了。不久,有人往井裏倒垃圾,驢很沮喪:「真倒楣,掉進了井裏,主人不要我了,就連死也不讓我死得舒服點。」每天不斷有人把廢物扔進井裏。驢忽然想:「或許這番挫折,正是我繼續前進的動力。」牠把垃圾踩到自己的腳下,拒絶被垃圾所淹沒。終於有一天,垃圾成為驢的墊腳石,牠重新回到了地面上了。

「面對逆境與挫折的自處之道」是我們在現實生活中不可避免的人生課題,試就此寫一篇文章。

驢躺在昏暗的井底,仰視着那個離牠遠遠的井口,再瞧瞧那些越堆越高的廢物。牠覺得再也沒有機會在井口外的草地上奔馳了。牠凝視着那一片在井口上飄過的白雲,流下了絶.........

香港人生活條件好,但快樂旨數偏低

March 31, 2015 0

調查發現香港人生活條件好,但快樂指數偏低,你對這現象有何看法

提起「香港」,閃光般浮現在許多人腦袋的,可能是「購物天堂」,「美食天堂」等此類讚譽香港的詞匯。沒錯,香港人優越的生活條件的確羨煞旁人。溫和的氣候,與天災絶緣的地理優勢,高品質的商品,便捷的交通網絡,健全的法律社會制度等等,無不是所有人夢寐以求的「聖地」所具備的條件。香港人就是在這個具備一切條件的福地成長。可是當香港人被問道:「你快樂嗎?」他們可能會一臉憂傷地答道:「不快樂。」對於如此難以置信的回答,你心中難免會萌生疑問:香港人不是坐擁最優越的生活條件嗎?卻為何快樂不起來?真奇怪。事出必有因,香港人的生活遠非我們想像般簡單,單靠生活條.........

家有一老,如有一寶

March 31, 2015 0

有人認為「家有一老,如有一寶」此句諺語已不能反映現今社會的狀況,試表達你的看法。

「家有一老,如有一寶」此句諺語,從小到大不知聽過多少次了。這句諺語表現了中國人對老人的尊敬,家中有一老人,便如有一珍寶般珍貴,而老人珍貴的地方在於他們世故,人生練歷豐富,從他們身上我們能學習很多寶貴的經驗和生活智慧。「不聽老人言,吃虧在眼前」,老人家的金石良言對我們立身處世大有幫助。另外,老人通常對世事都看得通透,能教我們凡事包容、諒解。而於現今的社會中,父母大多外出工作,家中健壯的老人還能扮演照顧家庭的角色。不過,現今社會又是否能夠反映出如此美好的狀況呢?我認為有所不能了,有老人在家,似乎卻成了大家的負擔和煩惱。

香港人生活條件好,但快樂旨數偏低

March 31, 2015 0

最近有調查顯示香港人生活條件雖好,但快樂指數偏低,這現象引起了不少香港人共鳴。在我的觀點中,這現象絶對不是天荒夜談,而是有跡可尋的,甚至可以把這現象說成是香港繁華背後的悲歌。

香港鬧市的繁華是每一位香港人日以繼夜的拼搏得來的,這是使我們生活環境好的原因之一,但香港人對工作都「走火入魔」了。看看中環,有多少個到了退休年齡仍辛苦工作的老精英,多少個應在家中做飯的女強人,多少個為了供車供樓的職場「達人」。他們無非也是想掙錢養妻活兒,打拼出自己的安樂窩罷了,但工作卻是無底深潭,慾望就是把你推進去的手;你掙了人生第一個十萬,卻不能供起一個四百平方呎的住宅單位;你掙了人生第一個一百萬,一個小孩卻要四個一.........

禮物

March 31, 2015 0

「今年中秋節,程一心的親朋好友共送了四盒月餅給他,但其實一心是不喜歡吃月餅的。

試根據以上情況給你的啟發,以「禮物」為題記述一次送禮或收取禮物的生活經驗,並表達你對中國人傳統餽贈文化的看法。

記得小時候,我每年最愛的節日便是新年。新春佳節,總能看見親朋戚友拿著一包二袋上門拜訪,離去時家中每每留下一兩個禮物盒。小時候的我除了愛吃,也愛問。「爺爺,為何人要互相送禮?」我稚氣地問。爺爺總是會慈祥地回答:「孩子,餽贈是中國的傳統文化,是表達對別人的祝福,長大後你就會明白的。」送禮看似簡單,卻是高深的學問。如何把握好當中的分寸,既符合收禮者的喜好,也配合自己的身份、心意是一門終身的學問。起初我並不相信.........

如何消除偏見

March 31, 2015 0

今早媽媽打掃的時候,瞄一瞄玻璃窗外鄰居晾曬的衣服,便批評道:「看,那新鄰居真馬虎!衣服還是污漬斑斑,洗得一點也不乾淨。

女兒聽後,一言不發,走到窗前仔細打量,隨即抺掉窗上的灰塵,說道:「這不就乾淨了嗎?

媽媽恍然大悟,不乾淨的不是別人的衣服,而是自己的窗子。

試就這個故事對你的啟發,寫作一篇文章,談談如何消除偏見。

偏見經常在我們身邊出現。所謂偏見,可以解讀為一些主觀的判斷,我們因著自身的感情、認知和價值觀而影響了對事件的客觀判斷。就如上述故事中的婦人,她以自身主觀的感情認定了是鄰居的衣服洗得不乾淨,但實質上不乾淨的不是別人的衣服,而是婦人自己的窗子,令婦人誤會了窗外的衣服污漬斑斑。

相處

March 31, 2015 0

「叮……叮……叮」,放學的鐘聲響起了,我手持着羅老師給我的便條,來到教室的門外。

羅老師雖然沒有任教我任何科目,但她卻是我這六年來的教會導師,可惜,她最近因私人理由辭職,此舉令我的教會生活有了一個很大的改變。

隨着教會的發展,導師們因工作、私人理由等原因紛紛離任。團契導師由原來的九位,變成現在兩位。團友們和我對於此現象感到不滿和失望,甚至對教會所做的決定感到生氣。

好奇心驅使我問她辭職的原因。羅老師並沒有即時回應我,反而問道:「一心,對於現時團契的情況,你有甚麼感受呢?」她凝視着我,我知道她想聽到的是我的真心話,而不是經過思考後才道出的「標準答案」…

花開花謝,珍惜摯情

March 31, 2015 0

由愛民邨前往迦密的一小段路上,矗立着一排木棉。四月開花,六月結果,每年如是。記得中一時,我仍會為忽爾飄落的棉絮驚歎,但同樣的風景看了五年,每天在這小路上來來往往,早就習以為常,很久沒有為這片景致駐足停留。

不經不覺,又踏入四月。記得那天,我抱着沉重的功課,狼狽地走着上學的路。又長又斜的路程令我的怒氣也冒了出來,仰天抱怨。抬起頭看見的不是灰濛濛的天空,而是一朵朵開得燦爛的木棉花。它們簇擁在樹梢上,同享盛放的喜悅。它們不會像花田裏的繁花般爭豔鬥麗,反而各自守在獨有的位置上,令途人能從疏密有致的樹枝間清楚看見每朵花兒的美;亦不如玫瑰般浪漫誘人,沒有獨特的香氣,沒有精緻的花瓣,更沒有婀娜多姿的形態。.........

續寫《孔乙己》

我見天色已晚,便決定到附近的人家裏討杯茶水,並且借宿一宵。敲了敲一戶人家的門,出來迎接我的是個二十出頭的小伙子,在我道明來意後竟沒有絲毫的不屑和厭煩,倒是滿臉堆歡。

這間屋子佈置得簡樸而整潔,一看就知道是個讀書人的家。我打量這間狹小的房子,視線不經意瞄到掛在牆上的一張照片,一個既熟悉但卻又帶幾分陌生的形象映進我的眼簾。

「這是……」「這位是晚生的家父。」小伙子打斷了我的問題,直接道出了答案。「這不是孔乙己嗎?」小伙子聽到我的話後看似感到有點震驚,他問:「正是家父,敢問先生是否與家父相識?」我點點頭,想不到孔乙己的後人竟然如此彬彬有禮,我輕笑了一下,突然有點好奇二十多年前孔乙己在離開咸亨酒店一.........
