Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the saying Wealth of the mind is the only true wealth. 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 health of the people around us, the apper- ence of us and the money we can earn. Talking about wealth, ideas may differ from person to person. Among all the elements of wealth that modern people attach importance to, I reckon that wealth of the mind is the only true wealth.

  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 considered wealthy. However, she keeps reading books routinely and insists in attending a variety of lectures. When mentioned, Lihong is always the exemplary model praised by everybody. To many acquaintances of hers, they think she is one of the most knowledgable and thoughtful girls they' ve ever met. In the case of Lihong, wealth of the mind is more essentially valued than the money she possesses.

  To conclude, it is not the money we earn but wealth of our mind that determines how people see us. This reminds us agian of the value that wealth of the mind is the only true wealth.
