Tapescript
Egypt has announced it will reduce its diplomatic staff in Iraq following the killing of its top envoy in Baghdad Ehad al-Sherif. The Egyptian Foreign Ministry called it a security measure. But Iraq' s Foreign Ministry appealed to Arab and Islamic countries not to be swayed by the kidnap¬ping and killing of Mr. Sherif, which it said was meant to deter them from upgrading their diplo¬matic missions in Iraq.

[00:00.00]星火书业 晨读英语美文100篇六级
[00:22.86]Passage 1. knowledge and Virtue
[00:28.00]Knowledge is one thing, virtue is another;
[00:32.05]good sense is not conscience, refinement is not humility,
[00:36.97]nor is largeness and justness of view faith.
[00:41.35]Philosophy, however enlightened, however profound,
[00:46.05]gives no command over the passions, no influential motives, no vivifying principles.
[00:54.15]Liberal Education makes not the Christian, not the Catholic, but the gentleman.
[01:01.59]It is well to be a gentleman,
[01:04.11]it is well to have a cultivated intellect, a delicate taste,
[01:09.14]a candid, equitable, dispassionate mind,
[01:13.19]a noble and courteous bearing in the conduct of life
[01:17.24]—these are the connatural qualities of a large knowledge;
[01:22.05]they are the objects of a University.
[01:25.45]I am advocating, I shall illustrate and insist upon them;
[01:30.69]but still, I repeat, they are no guarantee for sanctity or even for conscientiousness,
[01:37.37]and they may attach to the man of the world, to the profligate,
[01:42.18]to the heartless, pleasant, alas, and attractive as he shows when decked out in them.
[01:49.18]Taken by themselves, they do but seem to be what they are not;
[01:54.44]they look like virtue at a distance, but they are detected by close observers, and in the long run;
[02:02.10]and hence it is that they are popularly accused of pretense and hypocrisy,
[02:08.66]not, I repeat, from their own fault,
[02:11.84]but because their professors and their admirers persist in taking them for what they are not,
[02:18.94]and are officious in arrogating for them a praise to which they have no claim.
[02:25.84]Quarry the granite rock with razors, or moor the vessel with a thread of silk,
[02:32.18]then may you hope with such keen and delicate instruments as human knowledge
[02:38.75]and human reason to contend against those giants, the passion and the pride of man.
