知人者智

October 28, 2015 0
題目︰有謂「知人者智」、「寧可不識字,不可不識人」,試描寫一位教育水平低但深諳與人相處之道的人物。在香港這個知識型的社會,「一個人的教育水平決定他的地位」彷似是大道理。 擁有好的學歷似乎就能為人帶來高薪厚職,然而,要在這個人際關係多變的社會生存,一張大學畢業證書是否足夠?高學歷也許是我們工作的入場券,但也許只是個人簡歷上的點綴品,真正能夠讓我們一生受用的其實是與人相處之道。而我的祖母正正是提點我這個做人道理的明燈。祖母是我最敬重的人,我尊敬她,不是因她有甚麼高的地位,也不是因為她的學識有多淵博,而是因她懂得體諒包容,以德服人,讓人打從心裏尊敬她。祖母只有小學程度,但她卻深諳待人之道;她對待不同.........Read More

等待的意義

October 28, 2015 0
人生,充滿等待,在生活之中,等待的足跡隨處可尋。你在等待,證明你的活著,也證明你的存在。有人或許會感嘆光陰本已短少,質問為何在等待之中虛耗時間,浪費青春?然而,等待不是在浪費時間,而是我們生命的一部分,更彰顯重要的人生意義。萬事萬物存在於同一時空,沒人能擺脫時間的束縛,沒人能比別的事或人擁有更緩慢的時間流速,因我們都活在時間的洪流之中,所以所有人事物都需要時間的行進,不能一下子由因跳到果,一蹴而就。因此等待是人必須面對的。也許有些人會認為有些等待是浪費時間的,例如等候公車、在餐廳等待食物、等待朋友,這些都浪費了光陰,過程十分枯燥乏味,倒不如用這些時間做一些更有意義的事情。可是,我認為這些等待卻.........Read More

生命中的泰山

October 28, 2015 0
孔子登泰山而小天下,而我生命中的「泰山」是她-----林姑娘。你看林姑娘那瘦削的身形,也許也很難想像,她會被形容作一座巍峨的泰山吧。然而,在我的心目中,林姑娘的心卻是如泰山一般廣大與偉大,是我生命中的「泰山」。到山區進行義教,是我由童年開始暗暗對自己許下的承諾。我深知自己身處在一個物質富裕、不愁三餐的社會是莫大的幸福。在城市執教鞭多年,一直有感難重拾初為教師之熱情,為了實現當教師的真正價值,讓更多人擁有知識,授業解惑,也因為自己希望對世上貧苦兒童的一點幫助,盡一分力,我毅然走到了山西山區的一個小村落義教,以達成自己的心願-----我和林姑娘就是在那裡認識的。「陳老師。」林姑娘總是這樣客客氣氣的.........Read More

等待的意義

October 28, 2015 0
人生充滿等待,有人認為「等待」浪費了大好光陰,因而歎息連連;但也有人能與「等待」做朋友,而對人生產生另一番體悟。試以「等待的意義」為題,作文一篇。人的一生充斥着大大小小的等待︰一早醒來,睡眼惺忪地等待巴士的來臨;到小賣部買零食,排隊又是另一輪漫長的等待;上課之際,在老師誦讀聲中期待着下課的鐘聲也是等待……如是者,不同的等待在我們日常生活中輪迴交替,不同人對等待自有其理解-----有人或會認為等待是焚燒時間的一種,討厭這種浪費光陰的做法;但亦有人對等待抱持正面的態度,甚至還能從中領悟出人生哲理。在我看來,等待是我們人生必修的課程,其意義對每個人都彌足珍貴。等待是一種無聲的愛的表達,讓我們默默地為.........Read More

續寫一篇歐遊網誌

October 28, 2015 0
以下是陳允行的一篇歐遊網誌的開端,試為他續寫文章,從法國人的優哉悠哉聯想到港鐵列車發生故障的情景,明白到「抱怨解決不了問題」。旅遊車朝巴黎方向駛了不過一句鐘,忽爾在公路上停下來,導遊向我和團友解釋道︰「前面發生了貨櫃車意外,根據經驗,交通部門要花兩三小時才能把公路開通……我隔着車廂的玻璃,看見好些法國人都安恬地坐在車內閒談,有些則走出車外與「同路人」交個朋友,有些更躺在路旁享受日光浴。這令我不禁聯想起前陣子在港上班的一個早上,地鐵發生故障的情景…和煦的陽光本來能驅走凜烈刺骨的寒風,但現在不單不能令人們變得溫暖,心情輕快起來,反而成了令局勢進一步惡化的催化劑。我瞪着不住轉動的架空電纜,等待列.........Read More

獨處和群居

October 28, 2015 0
人是群居的生物,每天都有大部分時間與他人度過,例如與同學一起上課溫習,與朋友一同吃飯逛街,與同事一同拼搏奮鬥,經過一天勞碌,最後晚上得以與家人一同享受家庭樂的時光。然而,習慣群居生活的同時,我們或多或少也需要獨處的空間,例如在放假時推卻所有邀約,獨留在家看一本小說,又或是簡單如洗澡和乘車的一時三刻。縱然是喜愛群居的人類,獨處仍是每個人生活中不可或缺的一環。一心經過一整天無間斷的開會,即使早已疲倦不堪,在收到念慈等人下班後到酒吧消遣的提議時,她無法開口說不。最初可能帶着些許的不情願,僅僅為了不想掃大家的興致才答應邀約,但到最後,大家一同酒後酣言,暢談辦公室的八卦事,倒也使她輕鬆不少。到最後時間已.........Read More

成功與失敗之間

October 28, 2015 0
人生在世,眾人為了受萬人景仰,或為了家財萬貫,或為了一展抱負,總是奮不顧身為心中的目標奮鬥。成功,固然令人歡喜若狂;失敗,卻令人黯然神傷。但我卻兀自疑惑着為何人們總執着於得失呢?於我角度而言,成功與失敗僅得一線之隔,無須過分執着。有很多所謂的「成功人士」表面上氣派十足,名成利就,似乎確是「成功」二字的象徵人物。但表面上的成功並不等於實際上的成功,換個角度看,甚至是失敗的代名詞。意大利前總理貝魯斯干尼之前位高權重,統領國家的大小事務,身為最高決策者,貝斯干尼可謂成功人士的佼佼者。但是,這僅僅是其工作層面上的成功,其他方面卻又是另一番光景。貝魯斯干尼的私生活極其混亂,不單有婚外情,更被揭發曾與未成.........Read More

目標

October 28, 2015 0
題目︰「對於一條盲目向前的船來說,來自不同方向的風都是逆風。」試就個人對這話的體會,以「目標」為題,寫作一篇文章。「學如逆水行舟,不進則退」,不但學習時須堅持自我,力求進步,往自身訂立的目標向前邁進,人生亦然。在人生這波濤洶湧、波詭雲譎的大海中,海上的狂風暴雨總將我們駛往目標的小船吹得七歪八扭。抵抗烈風的方法只有一個,就是認清目標,堅持在特定的船道上駛進,這樣才不會被逆風吹得偏離航道;對目標模糊、盲目前進的船而言,就連海上的和煦微風都足以掀翻船兒。海上,逆風從東南西北吹來;人生,阻力亦從四面八方湧至。其中一道阻力就是名為「時間」的洪流,而認清目標就是抵擋的最佳武器。國內著名作家姚雪垠為了寫成歷.........Read More

香港是我家

October 28, 2015 0
香港近日社會狀況紛亂,有人認為「與其留在香港面對一個未知的局面,不如早點移民。」有人則認為「香港是我家,別的地方始終不及她。」你較同意何者?試談談你的看法。你從小居住的家日久失修,開始破爛不堪,這時候的你應該去或該留呢?這確是難以取捨的問題。「香港已經不再是以前的香港」這句話你我都該聽說過吧。自從九七年回歸以來,香港人多添了一份擔憂顧慮。一個奉行資本主義,高舉民主自由的小小殖民地,回到共產黨的統治下會掀起怎樣的風雨?就如在養父母照料下的孩子,突然要回到截然不同的「親生父母」身旁,心中終究會感到焦慮與不安。十多年過去,那一份憂慮有增無減,隨着中央加強對香港的施政控制,兩地交往越見頻密,各樣矛盾就.........Read More

真正的勇敢

October 28, 2015 0
你的師弟有容為人衝動魯莽,行事往往愛呈一時之勇,試寫一則書信給他,談談何謂「真正的勇敢」。有容昨天看見了你臉上的新傷疤,問你的同學才知道你又帶頭去和別人打架了。你的性格衝動,亦如老師所說的愛呈一時之勇,做事魯莽,不經思慮,就如之前你的美術勞作被別人嘲笑,你就一拳向人揮去,你認為你帶頭打架,教訓嘲笑你的人,是敢作敢為,是勇敢的表現,但這只是匹夫之勇,這種好勇鬥狠,並非真正的勇敢。英國文藝復興時期的文豪莎士比亞就曾言︰「真正勇敢的人,應當能夠智慧地忍受最難堪的榮辱,不以身外的榮辱介懷,用息事寧人的態度避免無謂的橫禍。」由此可見,真正的勇敢是一種有智慧的忍耐。就如孟子曾在〈孟子.公孫丑篇.上〉中舉.........Read More

不想說再見

October 28, 2015 0
那年在頑童中流行的「再見」,是「再也不見的意思」,站在海關入口,我很是爽快地向外公外婆吐出了那句「再見」,然後頭也不回地以稚嫩的腳步奔向海關櫃台。對當時的我來說,台灣是家裏對面的小學,是功課是幼稚又鄉土化的同學,是看厭了的風景;在天空的那一端,香港是開始,是摩登大都市,反正只要登上那衝出台灣、奔向國際的飛機,我就已比那些地上的舊同學們高一等了;就那麼一刻,我甚至乾脆地認為,向台灣「再也不見」也沒甚麼大不了,鄉愁的味道就如飛機渦輪外的空氣,被兒童對新穎事物的不可抗力洗刷得一乾二淨。後來不到兩年,我對「再見」的感覺又變了,我感到我上了「賊船」,香港是嚼不清的九聲粵音,是線蟲般黏在一起的英文文章,是.........Read More

第二次受傷

October 28, 2015 0
試以以下句子作文章的開端,以「第二次受傷」為題,寫抒情文一篇「時間是離間人關係的高手,從他 / 她冷漠的眼神,我知道我再次受傷害了。我曾看過一則笑話,內容是說如果飯菜太鹹的話,可以等五分鐘後才吃,因為「時間會沖淡一切」。把它看作普通笑話一則著實不失為有趣的解悶良藥,可是有誰真正意識到時間的威力?它能沖淡悲傷、青春,甚至是人與人之間的關係?而你卻無法逃離這一次又一次的傷害。中學時期,每個學生或多或少都會有自己的知己、朋友,當中我非常重視一位男性朋友¾¾允行。我們意外地十分投契,興趣也大致相同,大家都喜歡運動;多少次對方犯錯我們也彼此維護,有幾次他甚至替我背黑鍋,雖然被很多人都誤會我跟他是情侶.........Read More

試以以下句子作文章的開端,以「第二次受傷」為題,寫抒情文一篇「時間是離間人關係的高手,從他 / 她冷漠的眼神,我知道我再次受傷害了。時間是離間人關係的高手,從他冷漠的眼神,我知道我再次受傷了。眼前私家車的車痕深深地在雪地劃過,不消幾分鐘私家車已消失得無影無蹤,只留下一縷煙,在冰冷的空氣中浮沉,漸漸在車痕間離去。為何這兩道的車痕會那麼熟悉呢?我想,這不是第一次留下的痕跡了。記得那瘦削的腰板還未長高時,最愛穿着那件過大的白襯衫,踏着單車四處走。每天的早晨,我總是拍着手上的麵粉,搞着蛋漿,準備一個個熱騰騰的饅頭。「兒子,回來了,吃早餐了!」我對着窗外大喊,空蕩的聲音沒有任何回響。忽然,「鈴鈴」兩.........Read More

原稿紙

October 28, 2015 0
青綠色的田地裏種滿了筆者的文字,文字在框線間攀援着,心思繞了一圈又一圈,繞到格底。兩行間的留白無法終止筆者的感情,說不清,數不盡,又再次倚籐而上。「鋤禾日當午,汗滴禾下土,誰知盤中飧,粒粒皆辛苦。犂耙-----筆在田裏耙着一行一行的文字,作者的手汗落在紙上,字字皆是筆者用汗水和淚水耕種的莊稼。突然,流暢的文字逐漸細步逐行,停了,停在那十畝無人耕的荒田前。思緒就是離離原上草,一歲一枯榮。靈感如春風一般,再次吹活了思緒,燃燒到取後一行的格子。這就是,原稿紙。在電腦普及以前,人們會用原稿紙寫作文章。文字在原稿紙上不但只是表達作者的思想,訴說經歷,更是向讀者展現筆者的生命。每一個字的字型、大小和力度.........Read More
