《平凡的人》

 

一个平凡的人,登高清目,舍己奉公,这是一种什么精神?这是一种忘我的精神,这是一种无我的精神,这是一种敢于站在巨人肩膀上的精神。


一个平凡的人,能力有大有小,只要不断地积累德智体美善的颜值,真诚地坚守仁义礼孝信的人格,那就是一个脱离了短视的人,一个脱离了志残的人,一个心智非常高贵的人,一个言行有利于民族和国家的人。

《非凡的师》

 

师者,成长之园丁,施肥、除草、浇灌。师者,灵魂之工匠,施爱、正言、明礼。师者,文明之天使,施教、传道、授理。师者,人类之楷模,施德、扬善、弘法。

《生动的衣》

 

人有别于动物的第一特征是体面。体面的具体表现是穿着上的尊严。人活着要体面地行走于世,死后也要体面地放手而去。

 

人们自古以来就把衣的地位排在食、住、行之首。所以,纺织在工业中的地位是举足轻重的。纺织不仅把工业与艺术紧密地结合在一起。穿戴电子的普及也把纺织与高科技紧密地结合在一起。尤其是人工智能和机器人技术的引入,服装不仅能保温散热,服装也能问寒问暖,服装更能够助力助行。

 

不难理解,没有纺织业的高等教育和高精尖技术,哪有体面如画的教学课堂?哪有体面多姿的科研场所?更没有体面多彩的生活舞台。

《神奇的食》

 

色香食与面,五味主其变。酸甜苦辣咸,五味报头衔。酸食,生津之品,舒肝之味,柠檬臣之。甜食,热体之源,开脾之汁,瓜果王之。苦食,去火之药,护心之神,黄连冠之。辣食,汗身之箭,通肺之器,姜蒜君之。咸食,溶血之材,养肾之剑,钠盐怕之。

《美妙的酒》

 

花郎,酒中之王,不烈,不异,天然,巧制,饮者皆宜。花郎,酒名之冠。花,俊俏外表,心之怒放,心花之时,幸福良辰。郎,人之君类,男者雅类,女中爱类。

 

花郎,成仙之品,微醉,温醉,悠醉,醉乃永生之道,醉乃长乐之剂,醉者非神亦仙乎。花郎之酒,养性益体,四季常饮,醉延生命,醉助梦醒。

《难觅的屋》

 

何方?东有上流人海,南有红色船帆,西有太平巨湖,北有金牌陵墓。何地?平洋之边,昆山之颠,珠江之间,御景花园。何像?十色林树,七星雕塑,九曲弯处,寓所散布。何讲?寒舍独户,老少光顾,如未迷路,欢迎来住。
