Chopsticks are A.the least of my worries when I am eating in an Asian home or restaurant.In fact,learning D.how to use chopsticks takes me B.nothing but a few weeks .This is not to say I was skillful, though.Learning how to use chopsticks is easy for me,C.whereas learning the rituals and how to D.conduct myself at the table is quite difficult.A.Just how many times do I have to say ”no ,thank you” C.when I really mean” no ,thank you ,I truly am full ”?How do I get away with refusing more food without D.offending someone?If I insist and I still get more ,is it appropriate just not to eat it ?This would be C.impolite where I come from.

I have enjoyed many great meals and my C.interactions with the people have been great.I am B.increasingly aware that I will never be able to A.give back as much as I have received. I don’t know how I can ever thank all of the people who introduced me to eating in Asia.


This was what all of the

training and pain was

about-winning. I watched TV to

see the young runner who had been

under my B.coaching for the last

few years .I would have been there

on the spot D.had it not been for

the traffic problem .I couldn’t

B.make it even on my bicycle.

While I watched the young runner

enter to the cheers of thousands of

people ,I could not help

C.thinking of the pains that he had

gone through in his training.

The young runner was hardly

considered to be B.promising

when he first came to me .There

were countless training C.sessions

full of pain for him.I had seen

fatigue written on his face I had

heard him A.swear at me.I had

been A.indifferent to his anger

and pain.It was clear that only hard

work could B.earn him success.I

had smiled to myself when I found

that he had too much D.passion to

give up .And he would B.persist

with the training until he reached

perfection .I had never forgot to

remind him that D.despite the

challenges he had to keep on

practice. It was unfair that he had

no time for his G F. But that was

life for him.

The thunderous shouts and

cheers drew me back to the TV

screen. Oh, my dear ,the young

runner was B.gaining speed .He

was running to the finish line .He

was strong enough to C.beat other

runners.His courage ,heart and

discipline together with his years

of practice won him the honor.

Tears rolled down my cheeks when

I found on the screen the young

runner was looking around .I

understood at once that he was

right reasons”.Love had

A.nothing to do with

marriage .And ,for my husband’s

part, well, I C.suspect love was on

his mind either .He married me

because I made him feel young .He

was such an ordinary man going

B.around his very ordinary

midlife crisis .He was

divorced ,looking for younger

women and a career change .That

didn’t B.bother me, though .He

was still fairly charming ,pretty

handsome and C.above all rich .I

married for money ,and I don’t

have any B.doubt about it .My

friends don’t C.applaud my

decision ,but I can also tell that

they wish, at least a little bit ,for

some of the same things that I now

enjoy .They always prefer to

D.speed a lot of time by my

swimming pool than at their

common little homes .And another

thing, they are always

http://www.wendangku.net/doc/11b05c77ba0d4a7302763ada.htmlplaining about their

“beloved”. “He’s always watching

how much I spend.”“It’s become

more like a business relationship

D.than a marriage.”

My husband,however,doesn’t

B.care how much I spend and our

marriage never become a business

because it already was one. You

could say, we have a A.mutual

understanding .We are very

D.realistic about the whole

thing .It is painful for my friends

when they realize that love is just

an C.illusion.Marriage for love

never existed for me. And, he’ll

never D.divorce me .He’d lose too

much money.

without it life has no meaning or

purpose.I Love allows us to do

more than we could B.eve r

accomplish without its power. So

often we take good care of our

C.physical needs .We make sure

our bodies are fed ,cleaned ,clothed,

exercised and rested .However ,we

tend to A.overlook the most

important need-love .Of course, as

a society ,love is not

overlooked .Popular media

constantly places great emphasis

D.on what we need to do to attract”

love”. B.But being loved is not as

powerful an emotional need as that

desire to love someone else.

The need to love and A.care

for other is built into us

biologically .This need is D.what

allows parents to give up sleep and

food while raising their children.

This need is what allows people to

put themselves D.at risk to save

other from natural C.disasters or


Love means to cherish ,hold

dear, and treasure. We do not hurt,

harm ,or cause pain to those we

love;rather, we seek to A.alleviate

their suffering .It’s not about

wanting to possess or control

others; it’s about wanting to set

them free .Love is the power

A.that allows the wheel of life to

continue turning ,for when we love

B.beyond our own needs and

desires. We D.sacrifice our

time ,our energy, our wishes, and

sometimes even ourselves because

of love .It is love that allows

emergency services personnel to

face danger. It is love that allows

soldiers to C.risk everything. The

ultimate definition of love is not

about feeling good C.but rather

about doing good.

table. Mrs.Stewart had lost all C.patience in telling him to stop. Her words were falling on B.deaf ears .She had asked her son to quit doing sth. that was bothering her so many times that she A.hardly even knew the words were coming from her mouth .Billy had B.got used to this .He just D.ignored his mom’s expressions like these .He banged on without a pause.

She used to try to phrase her words in A.positive ways like,”When you bang on the table that way ,it D.upsets me. Would you C.mind doing sth. else that is a little quieter? ”There was warmth in her voice and she had all of the best B.intentions. But when she actually managed to get Billy’s attention in this way, he simply replied ,’But I’m bored.’’ She tried to offer him a bunch of D.alternatives, but nothing worked and it all became too tedious .It had become A.noticeable even to herself that she was A.increasingly using negative expressions.

Mrs.Stewart seems to understand that D.even if she shouts she can’t expect Billy to respond immediately. But she still believes that to keep on C.applying the pressures might work someday .Children may learn that arguing no longer works because of her continuous shouting. different name at your birth. Some

of us A.recognize that our name

does not necessarily fit and start

using a different name B.rather

than the one we were given. Many

of us B.choose to use our middle

name so we can be true to our

parents, and at the same time be

more confident. Some people who

have changed their name D.claim

that their professional lives

improved .They feel better about

themselves so they are B.more

likely to achieve more .But those

who have changed their names are

not just being overly sensitive.

Name themselves A.convey some

information causing others to make

judgment based solely C.on

them .Here is an example :A

magazine D.declined to print a

writer’s name simply because the

editor thought it suited a baseball

player C.more than an art

critic .Another example: A women

at a party became C.embarrassed

when she wanted to be introduced

to a man she had declined because

of his name .One study showed

that teachers give different grades

to the B.identical essays written

by boys with different names.

A.Similarly, girls’popularity can

be related to their names.

Yet, which name works and

which does not depend on the

times .The good qualities of a

well-liked president or actor can

often influence A.how a name is

seen .But if a name becomes too

well-known ,it might also fall out

of favor A.as parents look for sth. a

little more unique for their child.


financial stress .My company was

cutting jobs and they were

D.evaluating each worker’s

performance .This was

C.inevitable in those days of

rising competition and

D.shrinking companies .The

companies were getting smaller

because of the B.hopeless

economic conditions .I knew I was

being considered as one of the

workers they would let go though I

had been overworking .Or maybe

it was my home life .My wife and I

had gotten in an B.argument and

my 19-year-old daughter

announced that she was leaving the

house to move in with her


I am usually not a person of

quick C.temper ,but yesterday

was different .I rode my bike to

work B.as usual;it’s about 20

kilometers .I had stopped for a red

light and then B.proceeded when

the light turned green .I had

D.assumed the car coming from

my right would stop, B.but

instead it went right on through

the red light and C.nearly hit me .I

C.barely had time to react .I

grabbed my bike lock and threw it

at his car ,hitting his rear window

and making a crack.

The driver stopped and got

out of the car. I laid my bike down

and picked up the bike lock from

the ground for B.protection .Then

he reached for his phone to call the



C.puzzles me. From my

B.perspective, the world is never

seen so many C.incredible

opportunities for young people

exiting college.

Trends toward specialized

careers and lower salaries leave

economists and sociologists

A.fearful that the next generation

of employees will be C.confined

to roles that are too narrow and

thus not B.regarding enough.

Many say corporations are taking

D.advantage of the labor force.

B.But, no one is forcing our youth

into such A.occupations. If a

rewarding job does not A.exist in

the current system, they’ll have to

C.create it for themselves. The

Internet has already answered

students’cries for more C.career

p o s s i b i l i t i e s.T h e n e x t

breakthrough to create something

truly creative is A.bound to

happen anything now. At the same

time let’s D.ensure that students

are prepared for the day when their

c h a n c e s a r e c o m i n g.

By telling our young people

everything has already been done

and that there is nothing left to

dream about, we are D.robbing

them of the opportunity to create a

system that is new and exciting,

outside the confines of what is

B.currently imaginable. But then

again, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I

shouldn’t A.worry about our

youth at all. Their ability to

D.challenge what is before them

and defy our unnecessary worries

is their great strength. Maybe by

telling them they can’t, we are C.in

effect encouraging them to create

something truly incredible. All in

all, the future for the young people

is not gloomy; A.instead,
