A Better Tomorrow
People often wonder why historians go to so much trouble to preserve millions of books, documents and records.
Why do we have libraries? What good are these documents and history books? Why do we record and save the actions of men, the negotiations1 of government officials and the events during wars?
We do it because, sometimes, the voice of experience can cause us to stop, look and listen. Sometimes, past records, when understood in the right way, can help us decide what to do and what not to do. If we are ever to create lasting peace, we must seek its origins in human experience and in the records of human history.
From the stories of courage and devotion of men and women, we create the inspirations of youth. History records the suffering, the self-denial2, the devotion, and the heroic deeds of people in the past. These records can help us when we are confused and when we really need peace.
The main purpose of history is to create a better world. History gives a warning to those who promote war, and inspiration to those who seek peace.
In short, history helps us learn. Yesterday’s records can keep us from repeating yesterday’s mistakes. And from the pieces of mosaic4 assembled5 by historians come the great murals6 which represent the progress of mankind.

Even if you find yourself lacking in something, there's no need to keep repeating it to yourself. The human brain is an incredible thing. Be inspired by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Harvard-trained neuroscientist who suffered a stroke that left her unable to walk, read, write, talk, or remember her previous life. Dr. Taylor took eight years to recover and has since then written a best-selling book about her experience and appeared on Oprah. Keep on working toward something, and watch the leaps and bounds you'll make.
Lots of people lose hope at the so-called 11th hour1. In sports terms, we say that they lose hope just before the finishing line. xiaogushi8.com They don’t think that they can be winners in life, but the truth is they can.
The 11th hour is the point when most people feel the pain. It is an important moment that decides whether you succeed or not. Champions always put in extra effort to become winners and succeed. Those who don’t put in extra effort leave the race with nothing. All they need to win the race is a little extra effort at that last point. This is the difference between winners and losers.
I know you have the ability to be a champion. The race will not be easy, but it can be won. You need to put in extra effort when trying to achieve your goal. Just do a little bit more. This is what will separate you from others who seek to be where you are. When you want to give up or slow down because you feel tired, try to keep on going until you reach the finishing line. You can do it because you still have strength within you.
