对我影响最深的一个人 The most inflence people in my life 英语作文
perhaps the most vital person I have ever met is an italian professor of philosophy who teaches at the university of pisa. although I last met this man eight years ago, I have not forgotten his special qualities．
first of all，I was impressed by his devotion to teaching. because his lectures were always well-prepared and clearly delivered, students swarmed into his classroom． his followers appreciated the fact that he believed in what he taught and that he was intellectually stimulating.
furthermore, he could be counted on to explain his ideas in an imaginative way,introducing such aids to understanding as paintings, recordings, pieces of sculpture, and guest lecturers. once he even sang a song in class to illustrate a point. second, I admired the fact that he would confer with students outside of the classroom or talk with them on the telephone． drinking coffee in the snack bar， he would easily make friends with students.
而且，他总是利用图片、录音、雕塑等工具，或者请来特约教师，以一种形象的方式来解释他的思想。有一次，他甚至在课堂上唱起一首歌来阐明一个论点。其次， 我很欣赏他那同学生进行课外讨论或者进行电话交谈的作法。在快餐馆喝咖啡的时候，他能平易地与学生交朋友。有时，他会跟一个学生来一盘棋，有时又参加集体 讨论，话题从天文学一直到潜水。
sometimes he would challenge a student to a game of chess． at other times， he would join groups to discuss subjects ranging from astronomy to scuba diving. many young people visited him in his office for academic advice； others came to his home for social evenings. finally，I was attracted by his lively wit. he believed that no class hour is a success unless the students and the professor share several chuckles and at least one loud laugh.
through his sense of humor, he made learning more enjoyable and more lasting．if it is true that life makes a wise man smile and a foolish man cry，then my friend is truly a wise man． probably the best example of his wit is this bit of wisdom with which he once ended a lecture："it is as dangerous for man to model himself upon his invention, the machine，as it would be for god to model himself upon his invention．"
在他的幽默感染下，学习变得更为轻松愉快，也更能持久。生活使智者微笑，使愚者哭泣， 如果此话当真，那我这位朋友肯定是个智者。关于他的机智，最好的例子可能就是有一次他结束讲课时所说的一句智语：“上帝模仿自己的发明是危险的，人类模仿 自己的发明——机器——也是危险的。”
