Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the saying “Beauty of the soul is the essential beauty.” You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
In modern society, external beauty is more favorable since people with attractive appearance get more implicit benefits, which has triggered a controversy as to the importance of inner beauty and outer beauty. People from different walks of life hold various opinions on this topic, among which there goes a well-known saying: "Beauty of the soul is the essential beauty", intending to encourage people to pursue internal beauty rather than going blindly after physical appearance.
I strongly support this idea. There are two contributory reasons for my decision. Above all, it can benefit our society in that it is the good qualities like integrity, honesty and warm heart, which inner beauty boasts, that facilitate the development of the entire society. Moreover, everyone should try to be kind and understanding. Without a kind heart, people will grow indifferent and gradually they will make no contribution both to their family and to the society. They will probably lead an empty life too.
From my perspective, it is crucial that modern education should encourage people to look highly of inner beauty instead of superficial attractiveness. Also, it is high time that people understood the real meaning and value of being beautiful. Only in this way can they achieve a balanced and meaningful life.
