The cartoon depicts that a strong person is trying to find gold out of a huge stone. Holding an ax with his firm hands, he is hewing out of the stone of despair a piece of precious gold. The caption indicates that, “Only through Innovation can we make progress and conservatism means regression.”
The purpose of the drawing is to show us that utmost importance should be attached to innovation and creativity. To begin with, an attitude of innovation could be said to be the watchword, or motto of science. Think of all the innumerable times a scientific experiment must be carried out, all the laboratory tests, all the live trials, before a new medicine or vaccine is discovered. In addition, innovation is also responsible for many of today’s business successes. For instance, I personally worked with such a company and its entrepreneur. It was only after four years and four different tries of varying business models that he finally found success, and went to become the chairman of one of the largest Internet companies.
To sum up, in any field of endeavor, whether it be in medicine, engineering or in business, it seems necessary to first put great emphasis on innovation before one can finally reach success. It is as if life is testing us, testing our innovation and creativity to see if we are really dedicated to our vision, before life finally rewards us with success.

is responsible for是造成…...的原因
to sum up总之
put great emphasis on重视
2018年英语(一)大作文图画中出现了“重创新”三个字，但严格来讲，当年考查的主题并不是创新，而是选课、选择、困难、逆境、挑战。“创新”这个话题六级写作已经考过5次。在“大众创业、万众创新”的今天，需要引起重视。2010年，专八写作曾考察创新这一话题，主题为贵阳一个偏远山区的新颖建筑。2012年12月六级写作也曾考察创新这一话题，题目为Man and Computer:“The most dangerous thing is not that computer is beginning to think like man, but that man is beginning to think like computer”。在“大众创业、万众创新”的今天，希望考生引起关注。
