09读后感作品选登:A Happy Return
----My Comment on Cranford
浙江省金华市武义一中 高二(13) 彭晶舵
指导老师 郑伟飞

Frankly speaking, the definition of happiness, for most people, is always related to money. But have you ever thought of the life beyond it?

I’ve just finished reading a book by the name of Cranford. It has touched me a lot. Imagine that there is a place where money is considered to be vulgar, what will it be like ?

Such a town is Cranford. The people there weren’t very rich but they avoided talking about being poor. It’s not poverty but their lifestyle to get along with others that formed the unique custom. In reality, each in the town was having handsome income to live a comfortable life. People kept this sort of equality alive among themselves, and only in this way was everyone able to win or secure a social position because of one’s own character.

Nothing special happened until Miss Matty, a kind lady, went bankrupt. When it got round the town, everybody was struck by a tremendous sadness. They had to think about money now. However, there was an enormous surprise waiting for Miss Matty that everyone in the town came to her help. Her maid, Martha, refused to leave her alone. She hurried into her marriage in order to get the very money needed to hold on to the house for Miss Matty. Meanwhile, other ladies held a meeting under the rose and made a decision to give their little bits of money to Miss Matty secretly. Besides, as was the rule, the town used to allow no business! However, the town even accepted the fact that Miss Matty would be the first to engage herself in business, breaking the rule of the town for the first time. Thanks to the precious friendship and business, her life returned to be peaceful.

Perhaps, somebody will regard the story as a fairy tale, but how similar to our life it is! When we are young, never worried about money, we are happy enough. As time goes by, it starts to trouble us breaking the balance of our primary world, and as a result, happiness goes away. Is there any possibility that we will have a happy end like the story?

Life is never a fairy tale, especially when it comes to money, for, in our society, brothers may fight with each other and couples may separate. As is not foreign to us, friends turn against each other and so do relatives. In a word, money is an apple of discord. However, why not have a look at those who live in happiness? Are people sorted out, worthy of respect or not, only by the amount of money they own? Of course, it’s unbelievable that a man possessing little money will get tremendous happiness, but in the meanwhile, there is no denying that money isn’t the only standard to evaluate happiness. Just as Cranford did, the key to happiness is the way you spend it.

Take two famous figures for example, Han Han, a young writer, earns sums of money by publishing his books, enjoying tremendous popularity. But he still sometimes gets into debts due to spending all of his money on cars and girls. Just on the contrary, Jackie Chan, as a world-famous film star, devotes all his life to the cause of charity. He is happy for what he has done. Therefore, from my point of view, money to man is just what fertilizer to plants. Money is of great help but not everything.

We all dream of getting rich in the future, but when it comes true, do remember that money is not a tool for seeking profits or interests, but a gift to show love and kindness. It’s no good thinking too much of money, because the root of being happy is to hold the true nature of love. Then however old we are, we’ll acquire a happy return.
