ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon!
i’m very glad to stand here and give you a short speech. today my topic is “youth”. i hope you will like it, and found our young people’s advantages.
people are always taking about the problem of youth. if there is one —which i take leave doubt —then it is older people who create it, not the young themselves. there is only one difference between an old man and a young one: the young man has a glorious future before him and the old one has a splendid future behind him.
about two years ago, i was graduated in nanjing xxx university and came into xxx company and then i was assigned the department of xxx, and became an assistant of technical. i felt that i was just young and uncertain—that i was a new person in a huge factory. i felt that people use the curiosity eyes looking at me, and gave me a message that: i have a lot of problems. maybe some of them assumed that i was look like a child and too young to take this work. they often said：“you have not been born when i was join work!”others maybe assumed i was a “bookworm” and lacked practice. also the sense of responsibility maybe is another problem. i would have been very pleased to be regarded as something so interesting as a problem. for one thing, being a problem gives you a certain identity, and that is one of the things the young are busily engaged in seeking.
actually，you find young people exciting. they have an air of freedom, and they have not a dreary commitment to mean ambitions or love of comfort. they are not anxious social climbers, and they have no devotion to material things. they accept new things and knowledge very quickly, and give people the impression of sunny.
sometimes, we may be conceited, ill-mannered，fatuous or lazy. well, i acknowledge all of the young people are interesting in entertainment. they maybe dancing or singing very later in the night, and the next day they were very listless in the work. please do not turn for protection to dreary clinch about respect for elders—as if mere age were a reason for respect. we are equals, and you will argue with us, as an equal, if you thick we are wrong. if we do a mistake during the work, please think back recall when you are a fresh man in the factory. so please don not anger and give more patience guide to us just like your master worker guided you.
as the master of a company in the future, our young people must be going on learning in practice, enhance our specialized knowledge and the sense of responsibility. treasures the time and work hard, let the short youth be more meaningful!
thank you very much!
