Step VI. Sharing a poem [Whole-class work]
Life can be good，
Life can be bad，
Life is mostly cheerful，
But sometimes sad.
Life can be dirty，
Life can even be painful；
But life is what you make it，
So try to make it beautiful.

Paradox of Our Times
We have bigger houses and smaller families；
more conveniences， but less time；
we have more degrees， but less common senses；
more knowledge， but less judgment；
more experts， but more problems；
more medicine， but less wellness.
We spend too recklessly（无所顾忌的），
laugh too little， drive too fast，
get to angry too quickly， stay up too late，
get up too tired， read too little，
watch TV too often， and pray（祈祷）too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions， but reduced our values.
We talk too much， love too little and lie too often.
We have learned how to make a living， but not a life；
we’ve added years to life， not life to years.
We have taller buildings， but shorter tempers；
wider freeways， but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more， but have less；
we buy more， but enjoy less.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back，
but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We have conquered outer space， but not inner space.
We’ve split the atom， but not our prejudice；
we write more， but learn less；
plan more， but accomplish less.
We have learned to rush， but not to wait；
we have higher incomes， but lower morals（道德水准）.
We build more computers to hold more information，
to produce more copies， but have less communication.
We are long on quantity， but short on quality.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion；
tall men and short character；
steep profits and shallow relationships.
More leisure and less fun；
more kinds of food， but less nutrition；
two incomes， but more divorce；
fancier houses， but broken homes.
This is a strange and confusing age.
There are so many paradoxes in our times
that we hardly know who we are，
where we are， and where to go.
