I read a novel named “the old man and the sea” written by a famous writer Ernest Hemingway. After reading it, I very admire the will of the protagonist of the novel an old fisherman, he let me know that the key to a person’ success is persistence. The novel described an old fisherman who was nearly sixty years old, he caught a big fish in a time when he went fishing in the sea by himself, but he couldn’t pull the big fish up. After he worked with the fish for a few days, he found that the fish was several times bigger than his fishing boat. Although knowing is hard to win the big fish, he didn’t give up. Then a few groups of sharks attracted by the smell of the big fish’s wound, but the old fisherman still didn’t want to give up. Finally he succeeded and took big fish back to the fishing port. After seeing this, the other fishermen all admired the old fisherman. This novel let me thought up an old saying goes “where there is a will there is a way 有志者事竟 成”
圣· 埃克苏佩里在这部童话小说里，通过一颗小星球上的一个小王子旅行宇宙的经历，表达了对人类“童年”消 逝的无限感叹。
小王子在旅途中到过六个星球，碰到过一个目空一切的国王，一个爱慕虚荣 的人，一个消磨光阴的酒鬼，一个唯利是图的商人，一个循规蹈矩的点灯人和一个学究式的 地理学家，最后才到达地球，在浩瀚的撒哈拉大沙漠上遇到了“我”。
同时，也表达出作者对金钱关系的批判，对 真善美的讴歌.在作者看来，爱就要像小王子住的星球上的火山一样炽热，友情 就要像小王子那样兢兢业业为玫瑰花铲除恶草.The hero of this book is a little prince from an outer planet. A pilot as the narrator in this book, telling that the experience of all kinds of adventures the prince went through during him set up from his own planet for the earth. During the trip, the prince missed A Cavalier King, a vain man, a kill time drunkard, a businessman who seeks nothing but profits, a lamplighter who hewed to a line and a pedantic geographer, finally reaching the earth, then meted the person “me” in the vast Sahara desert". The writer of the book used children’s vision to perspective the emptiness, blind and foolish of the adult. He also used some native language to write out the loneliness and happy-go-lucky life of human beings. At the same time, the book also expresses the criticism of money and the praise of beauty from the writer. In the writer ’ opinion, love is hot like the volcano on the planet the prince lived on, friendship is doing one’s best to each other like the prince kill weeds for the roses.
