Many of the world’s most well-known people were once successful failures. Here
are the stories of a few of them.
Abraham Lincoln was one of America’s greatest leaders, taking the country
through the Civil War(from 1860 to 1865). However, his life was never easy. He
started numerous businesses that failed. He went bankrupt twice, and was
defeated in 26 campaigns for public office. He later said, “My great concern is
not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure. ”
Vincent Van Gogh(1853-1890)
Van Gogh is one of the most famous and influential painters in the history of
Western Art. He’s renowned for paintings such as TheStarryNight,ThePotatoEaters
and Sunflowers. However, during his lifetime, Van Gogh sold only one painting
for a very small amount of money. Despite this, he carried on painting,
sometimes even going without food so he could complete his collection of over
800 known works.
Albert Einstein won the Noble Prize in Physics in 1921. However, he wasn’t
always considered as a “genius”. He didn’t speak until he was four, and couldn’t
read until he was seven. His teachers and parents thought he was slow, so he was
expelled from school and couldn’t get into the Zurich Polytechnic School. He
later famously said, “Success is failure in progress. ”
Stephen King(born 1947)
Stephen King is one of the best-selling authors of all time, but his first book,
Carrie, was rejected by about 30 publishers. Eventually, Stephen threw it in the
bin, but his wife fished it out and encouraged him to resubmit it, which he did
successfully this time!
21. Who became famous all over the world after his death?

Joy Mangano was 33 and divorced. She had three kids under age 7, and was barely
keeping up payments on her small two-bedroom home by working extra hours as a
waitress. “There were times when I would lie in bed and think, I don’t know how
I’m going to pay that bill,” Mangano says.
But he had a special ability for seeing the obvious thing. She knew how hard it
was to mop the floor. “I was tired of bending down, putting my hands in dirty
water, wringing (拧) out a mop,” Mangano says. “So, There’ s gotta be a better
How about a “self-wringing” mop? She designed a special tool you could twist in
two directions at once, and still keep your hands clean and dry. She set out to
sell it, first a few at flea markers.
Then Mangano met with the media. But would couch potatoes (电视迷）buy a mop? The
experts on shopping TV were less than certain. They gave it a try, and it
failed. Mangano was sure it would sell if they’d let her do the on-camera
display. She said, “Get me on that stage, and I will sell this mop because it’s
a great item.”
So QVC, a multinational corporation specializing in televised home shopping,
took a chance on her. “ I got onstage and the phones went crazy. We sold every
mop in minutes.”
Today she’s president of Ingenious Designs, a multimillion-dollar company, and
one of the stars of HSN, the Home Shopping Network. Talking about the household
invention, Mangano says, “It is as natural for me as it is for a parent to talk
about their child.”

A. Special.B. Normal.C. DissatisfiedD. Unbelievable.
27.What can we learn from the text?
A. HSN is an Internet organization that helps such women in trouble as Manganot.
B. The experts on shopping TV were confident about Mangano's mop.
C. Mangano got the idea of self-wringing mop from her own experience.
D. Mangano once had to work seven days a week to support her family.
Cities usually have a good reason for being where they are, like a nearby port
or river. People settle in these places because they are easy to get to and
naturally suited to communications and trade. New York City, for example, is
near a large harbour at the mouth of the Hudson River. Over 300 years its
population grew gradually from 8 million. But not all cities develop slowly over
a long period of time. Boom towns grow from nothing almost overnight. In 1896,
Dawson, Canada, was unmapped wilderness(荒野). But gold was discovered there in
1897, and two years later, it was one of the largest cities in the West, with a
population of 30,000.
Dawson did not have any of the natural conveniences of cities like London or
Paris. People went there for gold. They travelled over snow-covered mountains
and sailed hundreds of miles up icy rivers. The path to Dawson was covered with
thirty feet of wet snow that could fall without warming. An avalanche(雪崩) once
closed the path, killing 63 people. For many who made it to Dawson, however, the
rewards were worth the difficult trip. Of the first 20, 000 people who dug for
gold, 4, 000 got rich. About 100 of these stayed rich men for the rest of their
But no matter how rich they were, Dawson was never comfortable. Necessities like
food and wood were very expensive. But soon, the gold that Dawson depended on
had all been found. The city was crowded with disappointed people with no
interest in settling down, and when they heard there were new gold discoveries
in Alaska, they left Dawson City as quickly as they had come. Today, people
still come and go — to see where the Canadian gold rush happened. Tourism is now
the chief industry of Dawson City — its present population is 762.
28. What attracted the early settlers to New York City？
A. Its business culture.
B. Its small population.
C. Its geographical position.
D. Its favourable climate.
29. What do we know about those who first dug for gold in Dawson？
A. Two-thirds of them stayed there.
B. One out of five people got rich.
C. Almost everyone gave up.
D. Half of them died.
30. What was the main reason for many people to leave Dawson？
A. They found the city too crowded.
B. They wanted to try their luck elsewhere.
C. They were unable to stand the winter.
D. They were short of food.
31. What is the text mainly about？
A. The rise and fall of a city.
B. The gold rush in Canada.
C. Journeys into the wilderness.
D. Tourism in Dawson.
Give yourself a test. Which way is the wind blowing? How many kinds of
wildflowers can be seen from your front door? If your awareness is as sharp as
it could be, you’ll have no trouble answering these questions.
Most of us observed much more as children than we do as adults. A child’s day is
filled with fascination, newness and wonder. Curiosity gave us all a natural
awareness. But distinctions that were sharp to us as children become unclear; we
are numb(麻木的）to new stimulation(刺激), new ideas. Relearning the art of seeing the
world around us is quite simple, although it takes practice and requires
breaking some bad habits.
The first step in awakening senses is to stop predicting what we are going to
see and feel before it occurs. This blocks awareness. One chilly night when I
was hiking in the Rocky Mountains with some students, I mentioned that we were
going to cross a mountain stream. The students began complaining about how cold
it would be. We reached the stream, and they unwillingly walked ahead. They were
almost knee-deep when they realized it was a hot spring. Later they all admitted
they’d felt cold water at first.
Another block to awareness is the obsession(痴迷) many of us have with naming
things. I saw bird watchers who spotted a bird, immediately looked it up in
field guides, and said, a "ruby-crowned kinglet" and checked it off. They no
longer paid attention to the bird and never learned what it was doing.
The pressures of "time" and "destination" are further blocks to awareness. I
encountered many hikers who were headed to a distant camp-ground with just
enough time to get there before dark. It seldom occurred to them to wander a
bit, to take a moment to see what’s around them. I asked them what they’d seen.
"Oh, a few birds," they said. They seemed bent on their destinations.
Nature seems to unfold to people who watch and wait. Next time you take a walk,
no matter where it is, take in all the sights, sounds and sensations. Wander in
this frame of mind and you will open a new dimension to your life.
32. According to Paragraph 2, compared with adults, children are more
A. anxious to do wonders
B. sensitive to others’ feelings
C. likely to develop unpleasant habits
D. eager to explore the world around them
33. What idea does the author convey in Paragraph 3?
A. To avoid jumping to conclusions.
B. To stop complaining all the time.
C. To follow the teacher’s advice.
D. To admit mistakes honestly.
34. The bird watchers’ behavior shows that they __________.
A. are very patient in their observation
B. are really fascinated by nature
C. care only about the names of birds
D. question the accuracy of the field guides
35. In the passage, the author intends to tell us we should __________.
A. fill our senses to feel the wonders of the world
B. get rid of some bad habits in our daily life
C. open our mind to new things and ideas
D. try our best to protect nature
36 If you’re looking for a challenging situation to practice your English, just
pick up the telephone. Not being able to see the person you’re talking to and
the body language they’re using can make chatting on the phone one of the most
difficult forms of communication. Never fear, though! Here are some tips to
guide you through an average telephone conversation in English.
37 Even if you’re calling a business contact for a specific purpose, it’d be
rude to jump right into business without a little small talk at the beginning.
Getting to the point
There always comes the point, however, where you want to move on from friendly
banter(玩笑)and get down to business. 38 If you are waiting to find out why
someone called you, you can guide the conversation by saying, “So what can I do
Interrupting without insult (冒犯)
If you happen to be speaking with a very talkative person, and you’d like to
interrupt, be sure to do it politely. For example, begin with “I would like to
say something here, if I may” or “Allow me to make a point”．
Closing the call
39 Sometimes it’s easiest to just say you enjoyed speaking to the other person.
Also, keep in mind that strategically (策略地)saying the word “well” at the
beginning of a sentence can indicate that you are ready to end the conversation:
A.It may be the time to offer some good wishes, such as “good luck on that
B.Believe it or not, talking on the phone can improve your English.
C.You should pick up the phone and say “Hello”．
D.Every phone call should begin with a polite greeting, such as “Hi, how’ve you
E. You can also make friends by talking to others on the phone.
F. For this situation, use the phrase “I’m just calling to”．
G. Well John, it’s been a pleasure talking to you.

I’m sorry to hear that you were scolded by your parents. But to be honest, it is
indeed you that are to blame.
To start with, being a student, it is our primary task to study hard rather than
being addicted to playing phone games. In addition, what your parents said and
did is because they care about you. How I wish you had put yourself in their
shoes! What's more, it is necessary that you arrange your time for study and
leisure wisely. At no time should you let phone games absorb you again and
disappoint your parents.
Hope what I say will cheer you up!
