And all of you present here, my dear graduates!
Each of you is a beautiful note in the movement of the CSU; each of you is a protagonist in the story of the CSU; and each of you makes due contribution to the building of the CSU. Thank you so much, my dear graduates! The CSU is proud of you all!
You have worked hard to become a graduate of the CSU. At this moment, I'd like to offer you my advice: a broad mind and hard work takes you farther!
Only those with a broad mind can plan big things.A broad mind is meant to be a great ambition. The bigger your dream is, the larger your world will be. Those with great achievements all have a broad mind. The most confusing thing in life is not what you cannot gain, but that you don't know what you desire for. Please think hard about the relationship between you and the times, between you and the country, and between you and the world. Today, China is at the critical stage of national rejuvenation. Only keeping the big picture in mind and paying close attention to the future of the nation can CSU graduates have more room for maneuver.
Only those with the ability to integrate themselves into the surroundings can undertake big tasks.Integration is actually a kind of great wisdom. A rational person will take the initiative to adapt himself to the world, while an irrational person hopes that the world can adapt itself to him. If you don't adapt yourself to the times, you'll surely be replaced; and if you don't turn yourself into an integral part of the overall situation, you'll surely be kicked out of the game. "Don’t worry when others don’t appreciate you, but you should strive to make achievements.” I believe all of you can smoothly integrate yourselves into the collective and society, know well about your units, work well with your colleagues, stick to your career and go all out to do it better. Only when you do well in integrating yourselves into your surroundings can you shoulder big responsibilities.
Only those working hard can make big things happen.Working hard is essential. In my eyes, what is the most admirable is that you are dedicated to something, do it in a professional way and finally turn it into your career. Hard work is not only the foundation of career, but also the way to success. "The reason why some people can speak very well lies in that they can listen to others’ pinions every day; and the reason why some people can do very well lies in that they always do things themselves.” I hope that you work hard to strive for progress, to surpass the limits, and to make great achievements!
Dear graduates, try to be broad-minded and responsible persons. The criterion of success varies from one to another. However, only those who dedicate themselves to their country, their nation and the mankind can be remembered forever! Today, the baton of history has been passed on to you. Now let’s stay together to:
Carry forward the CSU spirit of serving the motherland!
Maintain the CSU essence of working in earnest!
Pass on the CSU power of pursuing excellence!
The CSU is proud of you! The times is proud of you! And the country is proud of you!
Thank you all!
