Ever since the birth of the first human being, us human have always been pursuing the meaning of life. However, though we are of same race, due to our different life trail, we end up pursuing different meaning of life.
Some of these meanings are big, such as to change the world, while others are relatively small, such as to sustain the family.
Some of our pursuit may even harm the whole society, such as the racism of notorious leader Hitler. However, only after some examples of wrong meaning, can we come to realize of the right way of development.
Hence, in order to create a better future for ourselves and for the coming generations, we will never stop our pursuit of the meaning of our lives.
Nowadays many college students like to pursue famous brands. From clothes to mobile phones, even study articles like electronic dictionaries and pens, they are inclined to buy famous brands. Moreover, many students from poor families begin to follow this consumption trend as well. This phenomenon has aroused wide attention.
The following reasons can account for college students’ preference for famous brands.Above all, in many college students’ eyes, a famous brand is a symbol of sophistication and taste. They expect others to admire their high class and good taste. What’s more, in modern society, famous brands to some extent are equal to fashion, which has a great attraction to young college students. Besides, parents’ spoiling their children helps form their bad consumption habit.
As far as I am concerned, it is irrational for college students to pursue famous brands. After all, most of famous brands are far beyond their consumption ability. Besides, it is not famous brands but a person’s noble character that really makes him high class. Therefore, college students should attach more importance to cultivating a good character rather than pursuing famous brands.

The bike was so great that the boy loved it. The auctioneer asked, "does anyone bid?" The little boy still beat the price and said, "five dollars!" The auctioneer stood still, silent. The audience did not speak, and no one raised their hands.
A moment later, the auctioneer said, "it's five dollars! The car belongs to that little boy now.
