Directions： For this part， you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the saying Beauty of the soul is the essential beauty. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
In this rapidly developing society, what we persue has never been more abundant than ever before. We care about the food safety, the money we can earn, the health of the people around us and the apperence of us, namely beauty. Talking about beauty, ideas may differ from person to person. Among all the elements of beauty that modem people attach importance to, I reckon that beauty of the soul is the essential beauty.
Looking around, we may find many facts which can relect the value in the saying. Take Lihong as an example, she is not the traditionally typical youngster who would be consid?ered beautiful. However, she keeps doing good routinely and insists in helping those in need. When mentioned, Lihong is always the exemplary model praised by every?body. To many acquaintances of hers, they think she is one of the most beautiful girls they’ ve ever met. In the case of Lihong, beauty of the soul is more essentially valued than that of her appearence.
To conclude, it is not the fashionable hairstyle, not the ex?pensive clothes we wear, but beauty of our soul that deter?mines how people see us. This reminds us agian of the value that beauty of the soul is the essential beauty.
In modern society, external beauty is more favorable since people with attractive appearance get more implicit benefits, which has triggered a controversy as to the importance of inner beauty and outer beauty. People from different walks of life hold various opinions on this topic, among which there goes a well-known saying: "Beauty of the soul is the essential beauty", intending to encourage people to pursue internal beauty rather than going blindly after physical appearance.
I strongly support this idea. There are two contributory reasons for my decision. Above all, it can benefit our society in that it is the good qualities like integrity, honesty and warm heart, which inner beauty boasts, that facilitate the development of the entire society. Moreover, everyone should try to be kind and understanding. Without a kind heart, people will grow indifferent and gradually they will make no contribution both to their family and to the society. They will probably lead an empty life too.
From my perspective, it is crucial that modern education should encourage people to look highly of inner beauty instead of superficial attractiveness. Also, it is high time that people understood the real meaning and value of being beautiful. Only in this way can they achieve a balanced and meaningful life.
