For many of us, one Christmas stands out from all the others, the one when the meaning of the day shone clearest. My own "truest" Christmas began on a rainy spring day in the bleakest year of my life.
Recently divorced, I was in my 20s, had no job and was on my way downtown to go the rounds of the employment offices. I had no umbrella, for my old one had fallen apart, and I could not afford another one.
I sat down in the streetcar--and there against the seat was a beautiful silk umbrella with a silver handle inlaid with gold and necks of bright enamel. I had never seen anything so lovely.
I examined the handle and saw a name engraved among the golden scrolls. The usual procedure would have been to turn in the umbrella to the conductor, but on impulse I decided to take it with me and find the owner myself.
I got off the streetcar in a downpour and thankfully opened the umbrella to protect myself. Then I searched a telephone book for the name on the umbrella and found it. I called and a lady answered.
Yes, she said in surprise, that was her umbrella, which her parents, now dead, had given her for a birthday present. But, she added, it had been stolen from her locker at school (she was a teacher) more than a year before.
She was so excited that I forgot I was looking for a job and went directly to her small house. She took the umbrella, and her eyes filled with tears.
The teacher wanted to give me a reward, but--though twenty dollars was all I had in
the world--her happiness at retrieving this special possession was such that to have accepted money would have spoiled something. We talked for a while, and I must have given her my address. I don't remember.
The next six months were wretched. I was able to obtain only temporary employment here and there, for a small salary. But I put aside twenty-five or fifty cents when I could afford it for my lithe girl's Christmas presents.
My last job ended the day before Christmas, my thirty-dollar rent was soon due, and 1 had fifteen dollars to my name--which Peggy and I would need for food.
She was home from convent boarding school and was excitedly looking forward to her gifs next day, which I had already Purchased. I had boughher a small tree, and we were going to decorate it that night.
The air was full of the sound of Christmas merriment as I walked from the streetcar to
my small apartment. Bells rang and children shouted in the bitter dusk of the evening, and windows were lighted and everyone was running and laughing. But there should be no Christmas for me, I knew, no gifts, no remembrance whatsoever.
As l struggled through the snowdrifts, l had just about reached the lowest Point in my life. Unless a miracle happened, I would be homeless in January, foodless, jobless. I had prayed steadily for weeks, and there had been no answer but this coldness and darkness, this harsh air, this abandonment.
God and men had completely forgotten me. I felt so helpless and so lonely. What was to become of us?
I looked in my mail box. There were only bills in it, a sheaf of them, and two white envelopes which I was sure contained more bills. I went up three dusty flights of stairs and I cried, shivering in my thin coat.
But I made myself smile so I could greet my little daughter with a Pretense of happiness. She opened the door for me and threw herself in my arms, screaming joyously and demanding that we decorate the tree immediately.
Peggy had proudly set our kitchen table for our evening meal and put pans out and three cans of food which would be our dinner. For some reason, when I looked at those pans and cans, I felt brokenhearted. We would have only hamburgers for our Christmas dinner tomorrow.
I stood in the cold little kitchen, misery overwhelmed me. For the first time in my life, I doubted the existence and his mercy, and the coldness in my heart was colder than ice.
The doorbell rang and Peggy ran fleetly to answer it, calling that it must be Santa Claus. Then I heard a man talking heartily to her and went to the door. He was a delivery man, and his arms were full of parcels. "This is a mistake," I said, but he read the name on the parcels and there were for me.
When he had gone I could only stare at the boxes. Peggy and I sat on the floor and opened them. A huge doll, three times the size of the one I had bought for her. Gloves. Candy. A beautiful leather purse. Incredible! I looked for the name of the sender. It was the teacher, the address was simply "California", where she had moved. Our dinner the nigh was the most delicious I had ever eaten. I forgot I had no money for the rent and only fifteen dollars in my purse and no job. My child and I ate and laughed together in happiness.
Then we decorated the little tree and marveled at it. I put Peggy to bed and set up her gifts around the tree and a sweet peace flooded me like a benediction. I had some hope again. I could even examine the sheaf of bills without cringing.

1 We Have Only One World
When industries grow, pollution also grows. Today the problem of environment has become more and more important. The world population is rising so quickly that the world has become too crowded. We are using up our natural resources too quickly and at the same time we are polluting our environment with dangerous chemicals. If we don’t take action immediately then we will destroy our only world.
Man has made great progress in environment protection. Government of many countries has established laws to protect the forest and sea resource and to stop the environmental pollution. Still more measures should be taken to solve the problem. First we should start by educating the public about the hazards of pollution. The government on its part should also design stricter laws. This is not only for our own generation but also for the future generation to come. It is necessary to protect our nature environment. We must begin now to protect our only world. 2 Make The Best Use of Our Land
It is the land that has been providing us with everything we need for centuries. In other words almost everything we use daily comes from the land directly or indirectly. The food ,,clothes, houses ,even the books and furniture are all supplied by the land. But the limited land is decreasing at a surprising speed. With the expanding of the cities, the development of the industry and over population ,lots of large pieces of good farmland are being turned into residential areas with many houses and apartment buildings or industrial areas or warehouses.
Therefore some measures must be taken to stop the abusing of our farmland. On the other hand we should let everyone realize the danger of being short of land. And also we should educate them how to make better use of our land.
It is said that we do not properly value a thing until we have lost it. It is only when a friend dies that we find out how much he was to us. So it is with health. When we are young and strong and have good health we think little about it. It seems natural to us to be always well and we cannot imagine what it is like to be ill. We are often careless about our health and without thinking we spoil our health by bad habits and doing silly things. It is only when we have our good health that we find that it was one of God’s best gifts to us.
Health is our most important possession. We should do our best to maintain it. Good health is necessary to happiness and success. People who are in poor health are often pessimistic or depressed. As a rule bad health means misery and failure.
How can we keep our health? Only by knowing and carefully obeying the laws of health. A happy man is a healthy man and only the healthy man can live a happy life.
The desire for good health is universal. Everyone who loves life understands how important health is. First good health is the guarantee for enjoying life. The only desire of a patient is always to live an ordinary and healthy life. Second good health establishes a firm foundation for your ambition of the career. Without it any lofty (高傲的)aspiration turns to be a daydream.
4 Sports and Games
Sports and games do a lot of good to our health. They can make us strong prevent us from getting too fat and keep healthy and fit. Especially they can be of great value to people who work with their brains most of the day for sports and games give people valuable practice in exercising the body.
What’s more, they make our life richer and more colourful. If we do not have a strong body we will find it hard to do whatever we want. So persons of all ages enjoy watching and taking part in various kinds of sports-track and fields swimming skating football volleyball and basketball etc.
Sports and games are also very useful in character training. They demand not only physical skills and strength but also courage ,endurance, discipline and usually teamwork. For boys and girls what is learned in the playground often has a deep effect on their character. If each of them learns to work for his team and not for himself on the football field ，he will later find it natural to work
for the good of his country instead of only for his own benefit.
A healthy citizen makes a strong country. Let’s all take part in sports and games.
It is well known that smoking does harm to the health. Today so many people still keep smoking which has drawn wide attention of the society.
Smoking has so many disadvantages but no advantages at all. First the cigarettes with nicotine in them do great harm to the health. Such diseases as pneumonia lung cancer may be caused or partly caused by them. Furthermore the bad effects of cigarettes cost the smokers lots of money which could be spent on other meaningful things. Thirdly the accidents of fire all over the world every year are mostly caused by the still-burning butts (end).
The government has formulated the regulation of no smoking in public places. Yet its result is not so satisfactory. From my point of view it needs the common efforts of the society. Not only the nonsmokers but the smokers should cooperate on this matter.
6 My Views on Large Modern Cities
Since every coin has two sides living in large modern cities offers us many advantages simultaneously causes many troubles. Better education and better jobs are easy to get and better medical care is convenient to receive in large modern cities.
People are usually well informed due to the advanced media such as television newspaper and net PC. Large modern cities also provide varied entertainment for the city-dwellers. The public places like cinema bar disco-ball are everywhere.
On the other hand large modern cities are too big to control so the traffic jams and traffic accidents often happen and the social security is a headache problem. And city-dwellers (居住者)have to
face the housing problem. Usually a house is too expensive for the salary earning class to buy and the rent is also high. Moreover noise and pollution in large cities bring harm to people’s health.
7 Where do you like to live in the city or in the country?
Most cities are centers of economy trade transportation or culture. With the development of economy and society ,more and more people have flooded into the cities which makes the scale of the cities larger and larger. Surely it is very convenient for shopping, education ,business and so on. But it also has many disadvantages: the large population makes it crowded in each corner of the city; the big factories too many cars buses and trucks pollute the clean air; too much noise can make people mad. To live in the city one even can’t get enough room for living.
To live in the country is another thing. You can breathe the fresh air cheerfully own a spacious house with a big backyard and relax yourself in quietness. But when you want to go shopping or take your child to school perhaps you will complain about its inconvenient transportation its remoteness…I am an ordinary person. I am always longing for the peaceful idyllic(田园诗般的)
life of the countryside.
8 Time Is Money
“Time is money.” This saying means that time is very valuable.
But time is more valuable than money. The money we have lost can be gained again but the time we have wasted cannot be regained. Moreover sometimes persons can exist without money but nothing can be done without time just as no one can live without air. Despite being so valuable, time is often neglected by men. Since time is an invisible thing men often waste their time unconsciously(无意地). Without anything to do they may gossip from morning till night.
Man can live only at most to about 100 years. It seems fairly long but in fact it is rather short. We often say “How quickly time flies!” How many things can a man accomplish in such a short
period? Hence we should use the valuable time properly to do our work. We will race with it. We will study and work hard. Never waste a little bit of it.
9 Try to Be a Good Student
Perhaps it is the dream of everyone to be a good student at school but quite a few students feel at a loss on how to make it. In my opinion it is rather easy if you can act on the following points.First of all make full use of your time and work hard. Don’t put off till tomorrow what should be done today as time past will never come back. The fast developing society requires adequate knowledge which presses us to spare no efforts to study. Of course your hard work will be rewarded one day. Secondly use your own head and present your point of view. Credulous(轻信的)attitude will only
make you take anything for granted. With your own judgment you will be able to tell right from wrong and set up your own theory.
Thirdly set aside enough time for relaxation entertainment etc. don’t ignore the harm of all work and no play. Proper sports will build up your body and improve the efficiency of your studying. To be a good student is easier said than done for it needs a student’s consistent efforts. But nothing is difficult to a man if he puts his heart into it.
10 Natural Resources
Nature has provided us with many kinds of resources. Almost everything we use in our everyday life comes from Nature. The food we eat the water we drink the clothes we wear the concrete and bricks to build our houses the materials to make bikes we ride etc. all come originally from Nature.
People have been making use of these natural supplies for thousands of years. With the development of technology and the increase of the population the amount and range of materials taken has increased. It is estimated that this tread will continue in the years to come. However natural resources are not in exhaustible. Some resources are already nearly used up. For example the end of the world’s fuel is already within sight. Such an essential daily item as water is
in short supply in many parts of the world. We can no longer thoughtlessly use the many resources provided by Nature. We must learn to conserve what remains.
To Be Grateful
Everyone desires to have a happy life.But the happy life comes to those who know how to be grateful;
Thanks for the Earth for giving us everything we need
Thanks for our Country for giving us protection
Thanks for our parents for giving birth to us,they are the only living God of this world
Thanks for our teachers for guiding us towards our dreams,for giving us
knowledge and many more.
Thanks for our classmates for their cooperation and friendliness
Thanks for the farmers for their hard labor
Thanks for everybody from the bottom of our hearts for whom is good to us
It's all because the successful life comes to only those who are always
thankful for the setbacks.
Be thankful for the difficult times during which we all grew up.
Be thankful for our mistakes cause they give us chance to improve ourselves.
Be thankful for each new challenge cause they will build up our strength.
Be thankful for the moment when we don't know anything ,which give us opportunity to learn more
Find a way to be thankful for all our troubles so that they can become our blessings finally.
All in all, be grateful and never give up! No destiny is beyond our reach . just we have to trust and believe ourselves，cause we all were born to struggle and fight to prove ourselves.
Some plays are so successful that they run for years on end. In many ways, this is unfortunate for the poor actors who are required to go on repeating the same lines night after night. One would expect them to know their parts by heart and never have cause to falter. Yet this is not always
A famous actor in a highly successful play was once cast in the role of an aristocrat who had been imprisoned in the Bastille for twe
nty years. In the last act, a gaoler would always come on to
the stage with a letter which he would hand to the prisoner. Even though the noble was expected to read the letter at each performance, he always insisted that it should be written out in full. One night, the gaoler decided to play a joke on his colleague to find out if, after so many performances, he had managed to learn the contents of the letter by heart. The curtain went up on the final act of the play and revealed the aristocrat sitting alone behind bars in his dark cell. Just then, the gaoler appeared with the precious letter in his hands. He entered the cell and presented the letter to the aristocrat. But the copy he gave him had not been written out in full as usual. It was simply a blank sheet of paper. The gaoler looked on eagerly, anxious to see if his fellow-actor had at last learnt his lines. The noble stared at the blank sheet of paper for a few seconds. Then, squinting his eyes, he said: 'The light is dim. Read the letter to me.' And he promptly handed the sheet of
paper to the gaoler. Finding that he could not remember a word of the letter either, the gaoler replied: 'The light is indeed dim, sire. I must get my glasses.' With this, he hurried off the stage. Much to the aristocrat's amusement, the gaoler returned a few moments later with a pair of glasses and the usual copy of the letter which he proceeded to read to the prisoner.
Three Days to See
I have often thought it would be a blessing if each human being were stricken blind and deaf for a few days at some time during his early adult life. Darkness would make him more appreciative of sight; silence would tech him the joys of sound.
Now and then I have tested my seeing friends to discover what they see. Recently I was visited by a very good friends who had just returned from a long walk in the woods, and I asked her what she had observed. Nothing in particular. she replied. I might have been incredulous had I not been accustomed to such reposes, for long ago I became convinced that the seeing see little.
How was it possible, I asked myself, to walk for an hour through the woods and see nothing worthy of note? I who
cannot see find hundreds of things to interest me through mere touch. I feel the delicate symmetry of a leaf. I pass my hands lovingly about the smooth skin of a silver birch, or the rough, shaggy bark of a pine. In the spring I touch the branches of trees hopefully in search of a bud the first sign of awakening Nature after her winter's sleep. I feel the delightful, velvety texture of a flower, and discover its remarkable convolutions; and something of the miracle of Nature is revealed to me. Occasionally, if I am very fortunate, I place my hand gently on a small tree and feel the happy quiver of a bird in full song. I am delighted to have the cool waters of a brook rush thought my open finger. To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug. To me the page ant of seasons is a thrilling and unending drama, the action of which streams through my finger tips.
Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a
matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a
matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
Youth means a tempera-mental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spring back to dust. Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s
heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living.
In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station: so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young.
When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at 80.
If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America
is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if
the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still
questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your
It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.
It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.
We are, and always will be, the United States of America.
It's the answer that led those who've been told for so long by so many to be cynical and fearful and doubtful about what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day.
It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment change has come to America.
A man touched down on the moon, a wall came down in Berlin, a world was connected by our own science and imagination.
And this year, in this election, she touched her finger to a screen, and cast her vote, because after 106 years in America, through the best of times and the darkest of hours, she knows how America can change.
Yes we can.
America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves -- if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?
This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment.
This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore

You must do your part, you must faithfully follow the plans you make, and take the actions you plan. You must never quit, you must never fail, I know you must do it, you can do it, you will do it, and you will succeed.
Now stand firm and make a fist, get excited and yell it out:
“ I must do it , I can do it , I will do it, I will succeed;
I must do it , I can do it , I will do it, I will succeed.
I must do it, I can do it, I will do it, I will succeed. ”

Hold fast to dreams 紧紧抓住梦想，
For if dreams die 梦想若是消亡
Life is a broken-winged bird 生命就象鸟儿折了翅膀
That can never fly. 再也不能飞翔
Hold fast to dreams 紧紧抓住梦想，
For when dreams go 梦想若是消丧
Life is a barren field 生命就象贫瘠的荒野，
Frozen only with snow 雪覆冰封，万物不再生长

Unit1 WHAT HAPPEND TO THE AMBER ROOM? P6
Part A : Hans Braun's story
Hello. I 'm Hans Bran's, an old German sailor. During the war my ship was at Konigsberg. One night I was told to help our soldiers put some big wooden boxes onto my ship. They were very heavy and the soldiers said they were full of treasure. The ship went out to sea. On our voyage, our ship was attacked and sank. Almost everyone died. I had to swim three kilometers before I was saved by a German ship. Nobody had time to save the boxes. They must still be buried in the sand. Now a group of people who are searching for the Amber Room have asked me to help them find the ship.
Part B: Anna Petrov's story
Hello, my name is Anna Petrov. I was a maid at the castle in Konigsberg between 1940 and 1945. One night in 1941
many trucks came to the castle with large boxes. The German soldiers took the boxes into the castle. Later we heard that a special art treasure in the castle was shown to important visitors. Perhaps it was the Amber
Room but I never saw it. Then at the end of August, 1944, I heard something explode. When I looked outside I saw that the castle was on fire. The next morning I found some melted pieces of something that looked like honey. Russian soldiers later told me it was amber and it could have come from the Amber Room.

Once there was an ancient Greek soldier called Phidippides. He ran so fast that he was often sent on long
journeys with important messages. One day the leaders of Athens realized that their city was going to be attacked. They sent their army to the small town of Marathon, where they fought their enemies. It was a very long and hard battle, but at last the army from Athens won. They were very happy. However, they knew that the people of Athens would be wondering what had happened. So they asked Phidippides to go to Athens and tell them the good news.
Phidippides set off. He was very tired after all the fighting but he ran as fast as he could. As he got near Athens he began to slow down. His head was bursting and he could hardly breathe. As he got to the centre of the city, he fell to the ground. All the people rushed up to him. Phidippides opened his mouth. “ Athens is saved!” he cried. Then he fell down dead. His story became so famous that it is remembered by the Marathon race of 26 miles, which is the distance from Marathon to Athens.
