As is depicted in the cartoon, a student isasking a librarian whether there is a book on how toperform well in school without learning, and thelibrarian tells the student that to do well in schoolwithout studying only happens in fictions.Undoubtedly, the cartoonist aims at reminding us ofa fact that there is no shortcut to learning.
The rapid living tempo influences our life deeply, but while running after high-efficiency, weshould hold a correct attitude toward learning, because learning requires long-term and pains-taking effort and diligence. In fact, hardly can we achieve success without correct learningattitude. As competition in all lines of work grows increasingly fierce, we must defeat our rivalsthrough diligent learning. Numerous examples available can be given, but a case in point isThomas Edison, who in 1879, after more than 1,000 trials, eventually invented aninexpensive alternative to candles and gaslight: the incandescent lamp. Edison’s story vividlyechoes a well-known proverb——Rome is not built in one day.
Hence, it is vital for us to derive positive implications from the above picture. For onething, we should frequently use it to enlighten the young. For another, we should cultivatetheir awareness that correct proper learning attitude carries great importance. Only by doingso, can the younger generation become winner in the face of learning and life.
