Write an essay of 160-200 words based on the following drawing.In your essay,you should:
1.describe the drawing briefly,
2.explain its intended meaning,and then
3.give an example/examples.
From the above drawing,we find a man lying satisfactorily on a pile of money which symbolizes his parents’legacy.Obviously,he can easily afford luxurious cars and grand mansions.Moreover,he is exempt from any work since he thinks his money can never be exhausted.
In fact,the huge inheritance does not do him any good,but tends to undermine his vigor and passion for life.There are two reasons for this.The first and perhaps most important is that the essence of life,to most individuals,is that one struggles for independent survival.But this man is furnished with material abundance and life becomes meaningless and disoriented.The other reason is very serious from a practical point of view.A lot of people who inherit great wealth indulge in alcohol and smoking,sometimes even drug addiction.It owes to their lack of holistic outlook of life and that may destroy them physically and mentally.
Therefore,people should be aware that the best gift to children is not money,but an independent personality.This can be best exemplified by the world’s wealthiest person,Bill Gates,who has declared that he would donate most of his fortune to charity causes instead of his children.It is an admirable and wise decision that is worth being followed by all.
