22. Most dog owners feel that their dogs are their best friends. Almost everyone likes dogs because they try hard to please their owners. One of my favorite stories is about a dog that wanted his owner to please him. One of my friends has a large German shepherd named Jack. These dogs are often very intelligent. Every Sunday afternoon, my friend takes Jack for a walk in the park. Jack likes these long walks very much. One Sunday afternoon, a young man came to visit my friend. He stayed a long time, and he talked and talked. So it was time for my friend to take Jack for his walk, but the visitor didn?t leave. Jack became very worried about his walk in the park. He walked around the room several times and then sat down directly in front of the visitor and looked at him. But the visitor paid no attention. He continued talking. Finally, Jack couldn?t stand it any longer. He went out the room and came back a few minutes later. He sat down again in front of the visitor, but this time he held the man?s hat in his mouth. German shepherds aren?t the only intelligent dogs. Another intelligent dog is a Seeing Eye dog. This is a special dog, which helps blind people walk along the streets and do many other things.

23.I teach economics at Harvard (哈佛大学) three times per week. Last Monday, at the beginning of class, I cheerfully asked my students how their weekend had been. One young man said that his weekend had not been so good. He had his wisdom teeth (智齿) removed. The young man then asked me why I always seemed to be so cheerful. His question reminded me of something I?d read somewhere before: “Every morning when you get up, you have a choice about how you want to approach life that day,” I said. “I choose to be cheerful.”“Let me give you an example,” I continued. “In addition to teaching here, I also teach out at the community college, 17 miles down the freeway from where I live. A few weeks ago I drove 17 miles to that college. I left the freeway and turned onto College Drive. I only had to drive another quarter mile down the road to the college. But just then my car died. I tried to start it again, but the engine wouldn?t turn over. So I put my flashers (闪光灯) on, grabbed my books, and ran to the college.”“As soon as I got there I arranged for a tow truck (拖车) to meet me at my car after class. The secretary in the office asked me what has happened. ?This is my lucky day,? I replied, smiling.”“Your car breaks down and today is your lucky day?” She was puzzled. “What do you mean?” “I live 17 miles from here,” I replied. “My car could have broken down anywhere along the freeway. It didn?t. Instead, it broke down in the perfect place: off the freeway, within walking distance of here. I?m still able to teach my class, and I?ve been able to arrange for the tow truck to meet me after class. If my car was meant to break down today, it couldn?t have been arranged in a more convenient way.”“The secretary?s eyes opened wide, and then she smiled. I smiled back and headed for class.”I scanned the sixty faces in my economics class. Despite the early hour, no one seemed to be asleep. Somehow, my story had touched them. Or maybe it wasn?t the story at all. In fact, it had all started with a student?s observation that I was cheerful. ? ?
