       【观点类】
  Getting advice from friends who are older than you is more valuable than getting advice from friends your same age. 从年长的朋友处得到的建议比从同龄的朋友处得到的建议更加有价值,是否认同?(2009 年11月1日)
  【作家立场】支持年长者的建议比之同龄人的建议更加有价值。
  
  俗语说:姜是老的辣. 讲的的是年长者的人生智慧和生活阅历。当你遇到困境的时候,需要来自他人的建议,自然,年长的者人生智慧,生活经历,思辨头脑对于我们的指导意义更大。因为,年长者的经验可以令我们不走或者少走弯路。有趣的例证就是:大学的爱情风花雪月,男生喜欢美丽女神,女生喜欢帅气的男生, 但是,单纯的爱情被肤浅的快乐吸引,情侣们很少考虑家庭的背景,或者是两种的兴趣志向是否相同,这时候,年长朋友的建议对于未来幸福婚姻是有很重要的影响,因为,年长朋友经历过了才懂得大学美好爱情不等于未来和谐的婚姻,仅仅有爱是不能结婚的。再比如:年轻人求学的时候,可以选择海外留学或者国内读书,这时候,可能父辈们的建议和鼓励对于我们学业成功就有极其重要的指导意义,因为,很多的年轻人都是读书无意识,人生无意识。年长者的眼光通常很长远,年长者的阅历通常很丰富,因此,他们的建议是重要的。
