Confucianism has profound influence on Chinese culture by the Four Books and the Five Classics taught by generation after generation during the thousands of years of feudal society.

With the revival of traditional culture, people pay more and more attention to HanFu. The so-called “HanFu” does not refer to the clothing in Han dynasty, but refers to the traditional clothing of the Han nationality. It is obviously different from the traditional clothing and accessories of other nationalities. The reason is that the inhabitants of the Han dynasty are Huaxia nationality, but the traditional costumes of the Han can be traced back to the Zhou dynasty. In traditional China, the status of clothing is very important. In addition to the basic role of concealment, heating and aesthetics, the most important is the cultural and political meaning it represents.

Environmental protection is closely related to our daily life, and the simplest ways for our ordinary people to protect our home are no littering and classifying them according to their kinds. In addition, through garbage sorting, we can change some waste materials into things of value. The are some methods for us to carry out the activity of garbage sorting.
First of all, we should know the classification of different kinds of garbage, such as residual waste, household food waste, hazardous waste and recyclable waste, and so on. After knowing the theoretical knowledge about garbage sorting, what we should do next is making it into practice. Last but not least, we can popularize the knowledge of garbage classification to ordinary people by means of newspaper and television programs, so as to make more people involved in this activity.
Garbage sorting is an activity that everyone needs to participate in. I believe that with the joint efforts of all of us, our earth will become more beautiful than ever before.
Generally, everyone has his or her ideal jobs. Some people has the detailed aim such as a teacher, a doctor, or a lawyer, and others may have not decided a certain career, instead of which, they want a job with challenges or creativity. In my opinion, having an ideal job means having the inspiration and incentives, and my ideal job should be with following traits.
First, it must ensure me to learn something new. Since learning new things is the mission of my whole life, and it will make the everyday job not so tedious. Second, it should give me some challenges, and in other words, it should not be too easy for me. Because the difficulties and frustrations in work will make me improve my skills in many aspects. Third, the working atmosphere should be harmonious, in which I can make friends with my colleagues. Since most people are busy working nowadays, and the companies may become the appropriate place where we can meet new friends.
Also, to obtain the ideal job, I should study and work hard in my daily life, and the aspiration will be realized someday.
As we all know, since we live in a society made up of numerous people, we cannot do everything independently without being helped by others, and we should also give our hands when needed. And the kinds of help can range from handing over something to others to donating money to the ones in need. In my opinion, helping others has following benefits.
First, when helping others, we can obtain the sense of being demanded, which is a kind of happiness. Generally, when somebody seeks help from us and we offer our supports to him, it will be a success for us since we can do something for others. To make our friends, families, or even the strangers happy can be satisfactory for ourselves. Second, the help is interactive since when we have difficulties, others will also help us. Helping others is a good way to make friends. If we just live with neglecting others’ needs and appeals, they will also do us the same and we will live a lonely life without just a friend.
Therefore, helping others can be advantageous for both ourselves and other people, and we should do our best to help people in need.
