All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
   According the fable "The Ant and the Grasshopper" by Aesop, the Ant was working hard to prepare the winter's food, so he did't need to worry about the food in the winter. However , the grasshopper didn't have food to eat as he always had the fun. The author told us a lifestyle which is we need to work hard to prepare the future. On the other story "the Ant and the Grasshopper" by Somerset Mangham, George didn't have good life in the end even through he worked very hard. Instead of  his brother, Tom who spent all of time on looking the fun, had a lot of money . It showed that a different liftstyle with the fable. It told us that we allow to have fun to relax ourslfe. In my opinion, I agree with the lifestyle which is we don't need to work too hard to forget to relax ourself  that was supported by Somerset Manghan.    In the society, we need to enjoy the life even during the work, because noboby will  predict what will happen on tomorrow. And if you always force on your work, you will lost a lot, such as you don't know what's stituation will like in the outside world and it will have less chance to communicate with your family.  In my experience, my uncle who has his own Chinese restaurant always work in the kitchen. He has been Amercia about 20 years, he spent most of time in his restruant. My mother often told to him, "you don not to do any more now."  He answered that" I don't believed that my restaurant will keep good without me. One time, he went back China as in case. However, he still wanted to know everything about his restaurant from the call. He didn't give him a opportunity to relax himself.    I think everyone has the right to have the fun, evern through you are poor. When you are working,, you can take a time to have the fun. I know some people are enjoying the life even they are working. Just we need to know how to  arrange our time between working and enjoying. Posted by liting.lin at 2:23 PM ...
