Tom: I really enjoy it.The old Chinese classics are deeply attracting me.
Bob: What is your favorite book?

Bob: So do I . But I like the Heroes of the Marshes most.
Tom: I guess that is popular with many people .What do you like most about it?
Bob: I think it’s the characterization of the people.They are all interesting.

Bob: The Chinese literature is broad and profound.
Jason: If I had a chance, I would marry Boule De Suif.
Shadow: But she is a prostitute.
Jason: A noble prostitute. Unlike those wealthy people from the upper class, she is patriotic. She refused to sleep with her enemy.
Shadow: You just stole my words. Those people are so pretentious.
Jason: Those hypocrites used her kindness. At the beginning, they did not even want to sit beside her. But when they realized that it was a matter of life and death, all of them began to praise her beauty.
Shadow: But I can’t understand why even the nuns despised her. Aren’t they supposed to redeem people who slipped? Isn’t it the command of God?
Jason: Obviously, they betrayed God’s will. So they didn’t deserve to be saved. She should not have believed those perfect liars.
Shadow: Isn’t it sad that more money they gain, less human they become.
Jason: People are selfish. They only care about themselves no matter how fast the society develops.
Shadow: They will know they should learn to love others because someday we all are going to the face the Judgment day.
