Look at the following picture. Study the following picture carefully and write an essay to
1） describe the picture,
2） interpret its meaning, and
3） give your suggestion as to the best way to find happiness.
What looks quite self-evident is that a boy young as well as handsome is contemplating the true meaning of happiness. The symbolic meaning keeps so conspicuous that what on earth happiness is.Making more money, wining true love, or being in good health?
It is happiness that seems difficult to define. Those who have a relatively easy and comfortable life are sometimes depressed. Nevertheless, we may also have friends who have suffered a great deal but generally remain happy. The best case is about my uncle who has always suffered a lot in his life. Born in a poor family, he still felt satisfied because there were his beloved families around him; then in the middle-age, he lost his wife who died of a serious disease. Still my uncle was not defeated and brave to lead a delightful life. His famous words are that if you want to be happy, you will be.
Happiness, in my judgment, proves an attitude. It lies in the struggle to be happy. People sometimes go to extremes and frantically pursue money, power, high social status, which are all symbols of success but never of happiness. Perhaps if one really wants to possess happiness, he might just enjoy his current situation.
