Good words on good deeds (page 2) Doosan High Lesson 2 Variations You can make this activity more challenging by asking each student or each pair of students to choose one quote that they especially like and to write a paragraph in English explaining in their own words what they think the quote means and why they like it or why they think it is true (or false). Collect and give written feedback. You can vary this activity in another way by having your students work with a partner. Pair your students, matching a weaker learner with a stronger learner. Give the weaker student a piece of paper with some of the quotes on it; that student should dictate the sentences to the student with the stronger skills. When they have finished, they can work together to make corrections. And then variation #1 (above) is still an option. -- Produced through a partnership between UW-Madison and the Gyeonggi-do Institute for Foreign Language Education.

Our deeds still travel with us from afar, and what we have been makes us what we are. Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine them. Ambition and love are the wings to a good deed. Great deeds are usually wrought at great risks. We are the children of our own deeds. Every man feels instinctively that all the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action. Happy is the man whose deeds are greater than his learning. My country is the world, and my religion is to do good. To be doing good deeds is man’s most glorious task. The man who has accomplished all that he thinks worthwhile has begun to die. Good deeds from good intentions flow. The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention. The best portion of a good man’s life—his little, unremembered acts of kindness and love. If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I would run for my life. As for doing good, I have tried it and, strange as it may seem, am satisfied that it does not agree with my constitution. Noble deeds and hot baths are the best cures for depression. -- Produced through a partnership between UW-Madison and the Gyeonggi-do Institute for Foreign Language Education.
