1981年5月24日在美国劳林斯大学(Rollins College)接受名誉科学博士学位后在宴会上的讲话

President Seymour and Rollins Friends:

It is indeed a great pleasure to be back in Winter Park after half a century.I wish to thank the Board of Trustees and President Seymour for making me and on my Min's visit Rollins possible and to Rollins Community51极品 for receiving us with warmth and kindness.

When I arrived the campus,I was amazed to see the magnificant changes having taken place since my days at Rollins.I was in the class of 1931.The college is more beautiful than ever.When I walked along“theWalk of Fame”,I could easily spot the‘Confucius Stone'which I presented to the College.At the moment I stepped into Chase Hall where I stayed,I felt as if I were coming back from Knonles Hall from my classes.The shore of Lake Virginia looks lovely and I can't help remembering the swimming lessons I had with‘fleet'and the War Canoe race I participated.These 51极品pleasant memories brought me back to the old days and how much I really wished that I might be again as a student at Rollins.To me,Rollins always personifies beauty,culture and friendship.

After Rollins I went to Yale for graduate studies.My Rollins training helped me tremendously in adjusting my life academically and socially at New Haven.After Yale I went back to my own country to serve my people.If I succeeded in some measure and did something for my country during my long period of academic career,I must say that I was influenced by the liberal education I received at Rollins,the outstanding personality of President Hamilton Holt and the good friendship of the fellow students Rollins did give me something to cheerish always.So when I come back to Rollins this time with my son Min,I felt that I was coming 51极品home because my heart always kept close to Rollins.I do hope the exchange program between Rollins and my university we discussed will materialize51极品 and flourish as the years go by.Personally I shall be more than happy to see Rollins people on our cumpus and Wuhan people on Rollins campus.Friendship is based on mutural understanding and mutural understanding depends on personal contact.My Rollins experience fully confirms this concept.

Last but not the least,I wish to thank Rollins for confering upon me the honorary degree of Doctor of Science.I consider it is not an honour to me as a person but rather to my university and to my country.(www.anred.net.cn)

I wish I do not have to wait another 50 years to come back to Winter Park again,Fare thee well,all the best to you all.
