Owning a private car should be encouraged：
I think everyone has the right to enjoy a better life. The private car gives us a much greater degree of comfort and mobility in our life. With a car of our own, we can avoid going to work by crowded buses or subways. Moreover, having a car also means that we can enjoy the weekends and holidays better. With a car we can go wherever we like, even to places where the regular buses and trains do not reach. Therefore, owning a private car should be encouraged by our society.
Owniog a private car should not be encouraged：
Nowadays, the number of private cars is on the rise in our country, which has given rise to many serious problems. First of all, it is self-evident that the automobile contributes much to the air pollution.
Secondly, private cars have a direct relationship with traffic jams (阻塞) in cities. Without an effective regulation on private cars , the traffic system will suffer more serious problems. Last but not the least , private cars consume( 消费) a lot of energy , which will be a threat to the sustainable( 可持续的) development of our country.
Dressing well is important to one"s Iife.
I think clothes and fashion speak to people about what kind of person you are. They help you form a good first impression. So, dressing well is important and necessary.
Everyone loves beautiful things. Therefore, if you dress with a bad taste( 品味), you will give others a bad impression. What"s more, dressing well and fashionably can give you great confidenc. In my view, the clothes we wear say much about our personality. Just as a saying goes, you"re what you wear.
The inner qualities are more important than dress.
At present, more and more people are paying great attention to their dress. But in my view, the inner qualities( 内在品质) are more important than the way you
dress, since your inner qualities decide who you are and who you will be.
I think pursuing fashion is nothing more than a waste of time and money. Many women squander (浪费，乱花) vast sum of money each year to replace clothes that have hardly been worn.
Although first impression is important in our daily life, it can be changed by further communication. Therefore, the most importan thing for us to pursue(追求) is inner qualities rather than fashionable clothes.
Losing weight is a kind of progress.
At present, more and more people are concerned about weight. I think this phenomenon is a kind of progress, since people care about their health. As we know, putting on weight can increase the chance for us to suffer from some kinds of diseases.
I think the increased concern for weight is an improvement of our living standard. When we are poor , the most important thing for us is to increase our food rather than to reduce it. Therefore, I think losing weight is a kind of progress.
Losiog weight should oot be encouraged.
Losing weight should not be encouraged because it can do harm to our health. Now-adays , in order to be slim( 苗条的), many young girls have a fancy for losing weight. They eat1ittle every day, as a result, they can not get enough vitamins and minerals.
The fancy for losing weight is mis leading to our understanding of beauty. Many people take weight as an important factor to measure if one is beautiful enough. Thus more and more girls are on diet crazily, or even turning to medicine and operations for help.
In my view, losing weight should not be encouraged.
Cosmetics are a good way to maintain our beauty.
Whether we admit it or not, beauty does affect the success of an individual"s life. What"s more, one will feel more confident about herself with a good apperance ( 外表). Also, nobody wants to be pale(苍白的)， unhealthy and dull. 1n this sense, I think using cosmetics is an effective way maintain(保持) our youth and beauty.
Beauty comes from the inner spirits.
At present, more and more young girls like to wear dense make-ups, just in order to look beautiful. However, in my opinion, beauty comes from the inner spirits. Healthy diet, including healthy fats , sufficient protein( 蛋白质), and lots of fruits and vegetables are essential to keep us healthy and beautiful.
I think the beauty maintained by cosmetics is just temporary( 暂时的). What"s more, the chemical materials will do harm to our health. Therefore, we should pay more attention to our body and health rather than different kinds of cosmetics.
Cosmetic surgery should be understood by society.
I think if cosmetic surgery can make you feel more confident and better, why not take it. After all, all of us are pursuing a happy 1ife.
It"s no doubt that a beautiful appearance is more appreciated(被赏识的) in our society. With a good appearance, one can do something more easily, such as hunting for a job. So cosmetic surgery can provide us with a comparative edge in social comparative with a comparative edge in social competition..
Everyone has the right to pursue beauty. If one believes that having a cosmetic surgery can change his or her appearance, and bring more choices in future life, he or she should be allowed to have such kind of surgery.
Cosmetic surgery should be banned.
More and more peop1e be1ieve that cosmetic surgery can provide them with confidence. However, beauty fades ( 消失), the confidence you get from a cosmetic surgery will not last for a long time. What"s more, if you pay too much attentiono your personal appearance, it will result in distraction in your work or study which is the basic resource for you to gain confidence. And people who have undergone cosmetic surgery have no idea about the potential risks of such kind of surgery. Therefore, cosmetic surgery should be banned.
