Lesson 3: Wait and Hope


There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of living.

Never forget that until the day when God shall deign to reveal the future to man,all human wisdom is summed up in these two words, −− Wait and Hope.

–via Le Comte de Monte-Cristo

In the ancient and modern, “Le Comte de Monte-Cristo” is the most popular novels. Recently I read the novel again, follow host to experience his joys and sorrows. “Le Comte de Monte-Cristo” is mainly about the 19th century a man named Edmund was the chief officer of the tang dynasty when the captain, was between 2 of the er and lover’s brother phil south frame, at he and his partner’s wedding was grasp to go to trial, and as a result of jobbery villefort took over this case, the tang dynasty, was sentenced to more than 10 years of imprisonment. Prisoners in prison, he met a priest, in talking to the priest’s, he won the rebirth, and have the wisdom and wealth. After prison, he was renamed the sailor first mountain, return those who have mercy on him, and then changed its name to the count of monte cristo began his revenge plan. In the way of revenge, in the end, all the sinners were punished.

The author through the novel “Le Comte de Monte-Cristo” reveals to us the dark side of the society at that time. The novel also reflects the people’s. For money, for fame, villefort couple even made the humanity behavior, m. DE villefort to fame, the future do not hesitate to go against his own father, for the money, he by this identity “judge” how many people don’t know wronged; As Mrs Villefort’s money worship, made her to kill her loved ones in order to obtain a heritage.

And this, is not straight also reminds us that we live in “you can do nothing without money” s people, walking in the society, life, to be placed in front of a beacon, self, and “the silt but not imbrued, turbidity qing lian without demon” quality.

Also, Dumas wrote more magic, of course, content with twists and turns, the later the more fascinating, let a person to read intense. Victor. Hugo opinion of dumas is: he like summer thundershower frank, is a likeable. He is a thick cloud, thunder, lightning, but he never hurt anyone. Everyone knew he like showers to be moderate in a drought, a generous.

I really hope that people in the world can be open-minded, try our best to do their thing. We think that the anyway, please remember WAIT and HOPE cause have to experience pain, feel the happiness!
