作文1：It is unwise to judge a person by appearance.不要以貌取人
As a prevailing saying goes,“Don’t judge a person by appearance”. Undoubtedly, it reflects a current phenomenon that fewer individuals seem to attach due importance to the significance of intrinsic factors. However, from my own perspective, we should put more emphasis on the quality rather than appearance.
Taking a look around, we can find examples too numerous to list. The best illustration might be some currently over-packaged products in the markets. To put it more exactly, we may easily notice that the delicate packaged products may turn out to be of inferior quality. Exactly, it is the intrinsic factors that enable us to make reasonable choices.
In short, laying a solid foundation is crucial if we want to make achievements in our stu-dies or work, or indeed in any other aspects of our lives. And what we should bear in mind is that essence matters most instead of “the first sight”.
题目：It is unwise to put all eggs in one basket.
As a common saying goes， “It is unwise to put all eggs in one basket. ”Placing all eggs in one basket means focus all our attention on one thing and fix all our hope on one thing. However, It is wrong and reasonless.
Why placing all eggs in one basket is wrong ? Placing all eggs in one basket tends to reduce the odds of success. By focusing on one thing , people will surely improve their efficiency and proficiency. However, they will also overlook other resources and possibilities，thus，the likelihood of success will be lower.

Compared with other students who chose different kinds of jobs, he aimed at state-owned firms alone. Unfortunately, getting a decent job in state-owned firms is really hard for him. At last, when others got a job, he was still on the way to his interviews. suppose he choose jobs in a wider range and “place all eggs in different baskets”， he could have gotten a job much easier. Putting all eggs in one basket in unwise, a truth which is applicable to many situations.

Chinese buzzwords, some of which are more and more prevalent among Western media, normally reflect the change of society as well as culture. For example, tuhao and dama are actually existing words which have achieved new meanings.
Tuhao was originally referred as landowners who bully tenants and servants, but now it is used to describe those people who spend money without thinking or who are keen on flaunting wealth. That is to say, tuhao has money, but doesn’t have taste. Dama was the title of middle-aged woman, but now it is used to call those people who buy a lot of gold when the price decreased not long time ago in particular.
There is a possibility that tuhao and dama could be adopted in new edition Oxford. Up to now, there are already about 120 Chinese words added into Oxford, becoming a part of English language.
