This week we read an article about the details of the sinking of the Titanic.
Charles Lightler, second mate of the Titanic, was the last highest-ranking survivor to be dragged aboard a lifeboat from the icy waters. He wrote a 17-page memoir with details of the shipwreck disaster. In the face of the sinking disaster, the captain ordered women and children to get on the lifeboats first, and many passengers appeared very calm, while some refused to be separated from their families. For example, after Astor IV (the richest man in the world at the time) put his five-month-pregnant wife on lifeboat No. 4, he stood on the deck, took his dog, lit a cigar, and rowed far away. At the end of the boat shouted: I love you! Strauss, the second richest man in the world and the founder of Macy's department store in the United States, no matter what method he uses, his wife Rosalie always refuses to get on the No. 8 lifeboat. She said: For so many years, where do you go, where do I go? , I will accompany you wherever you go. Finally the old couple stumbled to the deck wicker chairs and sat down, waiting for the last moment. Another mother's two children were carried into the lifeboat, but she couldn't sit because of the overload. At this time, a woman who was already in the lifeboat got up and got out of her seat, pushed her into the lifeboat and shouted: go up , a child cannot live without a mother! The dead also included the billionaire Asid, the artillery major Bart, and the famous engineer Roble... They gave up the lifeboats and came out to those penniless peasant women. After reading the article, in addition to being touched, I also understood that the success of these gentlemen and ladies is precisely because of their kindness. Success is not accidental. It is not intentional, but kind to others. Let kindness fill your heart, and others will definitely feel your kindness and treat or repay you in the same way. It's the same with these billionaires and successful people, and how great and touching they are to continue their kindness to the end of their lives!
Since uncle is usually very busy with work, I have been helping my uncle to sort out the bills for girls every time they shop since last year. Although this may seem inconspicuous, it is not easy to do. First you need to categorize, then label what everyone buys, and finally do the calculations. You must also be careful not to make mistakes when calculating. Once you make a mistake, you must redo all the steps, so you must calm down and do it slowly. Through this work, I have learned that I must not be impetuous in doing things. If I do not meditate on things, I will not only make things worse, but also waste time. So I hope that everyone can calm down when doing things, and don't wait until the end to regret it when you don't do it well.
