One version: We all want to grow up happily and healthily, and to achiever this goal we must do several things. Above all, it is important to develop a positive attitude, which plays a vital role in our life. Life is an interesting journey of ups and downs.

怀旧：古老的英语书 经典再现 高中英语课本 1984 年版 LESSON 3 ON READING 谈读书 The Authors' Club London, S.W.1 2nd January, 19__ Dear Fransisco, I'm glad to know you enjoyed the books I sent you for Christmas. Your letter of thanks was very well written and I congratulate you on being able to write so well. You ask me for advice on reading. That's a very difficult request. I always hesitate to advise my friends on what to read. How can I possibly know what will interest other people? And you don't say in your letter what you want to read. What you do say is that you're very fond of reading, and I'm delighted by that. Do you know the essays of Francis Bacon, who lived about the same time as Shakespeare? They're full of good advice about reading. Here's a bit from the essay "Of Studies". "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested. "有些书只需品尝，有些需要吞咽，还有少数的应该细嚼。---培根（英国） I can't give you better advice than that. It tells you how to read books of different kinds. I suppose most travel books are to be "tasted"; it's enough to dip into them and read bits here and there. If you're fond of stories, you will, if you're like me, read them quickly; you'll "swallow" them. And then there are books that you'll read slowly and carefully. If a book's on an important subject and a subject you're interested in, you'll want to "chew and digest" it. If the book's in English, that may mean slow progress for you. But I don't advise you to read too slowly. When I was living in Tokyo many years ago, I used to go to the second-hand bookshops. They were full of English books. The first twenty or thirty pages of many of them had their margins filled with penciled notes and there were dozens of words and phrases underlined. The owners, probably earnest students, had started out very seriously, determined to master the books. Then, as I turned the pages over, I found clean white margins, with not a single note. It was clear that the reader had given up in despair. I suppose that's a common experience in many countries with books in a foreign language. The reader starts out, full of hope and determination. Then, the need to turn to a dictionary or a reference book, perhaps ten or even twenty times a gage, tires him out. There are two or three answers to this problem. The first is: Don't start reading a book unless you see, from the first few pages, that it's one you can read with ease and understanding. Don't try to run before you can walk. There are plenty of books that have been rewritten in simple language - and shortened too, if necessary. My second answer to this question of diffcult vocabulary is, I think, a much better one. Don't stop every time you come to a word or phrase you don't know. Read the whole chapter quickly. Quite often you'll find the unknown word comes again, perhaps several times, and
by the end of the chapter you've guessed its meaning. That's how we learn the meaning of words in our own language, isn't it? When we're children, I mean. When I'm telling a story to children, they seldom stop to ask what a word means. Even when they read, they don't turn to the dictionary every time they see an unknown word. Read a chapter quickly, and then go back and read it more slowly. This time, use your reference books when necessary. But try to judge what is worth looking up and what is not. You'll tell me it's diffcult, very often, for you to judge whether an unknown word is important or not. I agree that this is often true. But it's not always difficult. You're going to be an architect, so words used in architecture are important to you. If they're new to you, you'll look them up. But the reader is not interested in architecture, he could pass them by.They're not always necessary for his enjoyment of the book. When I read my Times these days I often find articles about the uses of atomic energy. There are sometimes words Idon't know - and some of them are so new that they're not yet in the dictionaries. But I'm slowly beginning to understand what some of the words mean simply by meeting them so often. Well, that's my advice to you. I hope you'll find it helpful. It isn't perfect, I know. There will be times when, if you decide not to look up a reference, you'll miss something that may be important. But I feel I'm right in advising you not to be too thorough in your use of reference books except when you're studying you own special subjuct. If you're too thorough, you'll lose heart and perhaps give up. Good luck to you in your reading. Do read again, and if you think I can help you any way, please don't hesitate to ask.
09 陕西卷 Hi, grown up,
As a student of your age. I understand your situation. As a student of your age. I understand your situation. The problem you are facing is common among our teenagers. However, it should be wise not to do anything that may hurt her feelings. Here are a few suggestions. First, it’s advisable to talk more with your mom. Heart to heart talks help you understand each others better. They are also opportunities to let her know your ideas of and attitudes toward many things. Second, you should learn to do your own things well, proving to your mom that you are already a “grown-up”, It’s even better if you could share more of the housework, such as cleaning, washing and cooking. Hope my ideas will work.
LESSON 3 ALL THESE THINGS ARE TO BE ANSWERED FOR 所有这一切都是要偿还的（选自《双城记》( A Tale of Two Cities） The following account was written by Alexandre Mannette, a French doctor, in 1767 when he was a prisoner in the Bastille in France. In his account Dr. Manette told the story of the great wrong done to him. When he was walking by the river Seine one night in December 1757, two noblemen forced him into their carriage and took him to a lonely house. There, in a room upstairs, he found a young and beautiful girl, who kept shouting and crying, obviously mad. He did what he could to calm her, and then he was taken down to another room, where he found a wounded peasant boy, who was dying. The boy told him his story and also that of the girl upstairs, who was his sisiter, and of the terrible wrongs that had been done them by the two noblemen. The boy died, and a week later, so did his sister. The doctor wrote a letter to the Minister disclosing the whole affair. The next day he was kidnapped and thrown into the Bastille. The following is taken from Dr. Manette's account of his meeting with the boy and of what the boy told him. The older of the two noblemen took a light and led me into a back room. There on some hay on the ground lay a peasant boy of not more than seventeen. He lay on his back, his teeth set, his right hand clenched on his breast, and his glaring eyes looking straight upward. I could not see where his wound was as I knelt on one knee over him, but I could see that he was dying. "I am a doctor, my poor fellow," said I. "Let me examine you." "I do not want to be examined," he answered. "Let me be." The wound was under his hand, and I persuaded him to let me move his hand away. It was a sword-thrust, received from twenty tn twenty-four hours before, but nothing could have saved him even if he had been tended without delay. He was then dying fast. "How did this happen, monsieur?" "A serf! He forced my brother to draw upon him, and fell by my brother's sword," said the nobleman. The boy's eyes had slowly moved to the nobleman as he spoke, and they now moved to me.. Slowly, he spoke out: 'He is lying, Doctor. I have a sister. She was engaged to a young man, a tenant of his. We were all tenants of his - of that man who is standing there." It was with the greatest difficulty that the boy gathered his strength to speak, but he spoke with a frightful emphasis. ALL THESE THINGS ARE TO BE ANSWERED FOR(Continued) "We were robbed by that man who is standing there, taxed by him without mercy, obliged to work for him without pay, obliged to feed scores of his tame birds on our
wretched crops, and forbidden to keep a single bird of our own - I say, we were so robbed, and were made so poor, that our father told us it was a dreadful thing to bring a child into the world." I had never before seen the feeling of being oppressed, bursting forth like a fire. I had supposed that it must be latest somewhere in the people, but I had never seen it break out until I saw it in the dying boy. "Doctor, my sister married the man she was engaged to. He was ill at the time, and she married him so that she might tend and comfort him in our cottage. She had not been married many weeks when that man's younger brother saw her and was struck by her beauty. Then with that man's permission and even wwith his help, he seized her and took her away. I saw them pass me on the road. When I told our father about this, his heart burst. Then, last night I followed him here, and climbed in, sword in hand. "My sister heard me, and ran in. Then that man's brother came in. He first threw me some oieces of money, then struck me with a whip. As I fought back, he drew his sword and thrust it at me. "Now, lift me up, Doctor; lift me up, where is he?" "He is not here," I said, supporting the boy. I thought he was referring to the younger of the two noblemen. "Ha! Proud as these bobles are, he is afraid to see me. Where is the man who was here? Turn my face to him." I did so, raising the boy's head against my knee. But, filled for the moment with extraordianry strength, he raised himself completely, obliging me to rise too, or I could not have supported him. "Marquis," said the boy, turning to the man, and his right hand raised, "in the days when all these things are to be answered for, I summon you and yours, to the last of your bad race, to answer for them. In the days when all these things are to be answered for, I summon your brother, the worst of your bad race, to answer for them separately." He stood there for an istant with his hand still raised. Then, as it dropped, he dropped with it, amd I laid him sown dead. 培根关于读书的名言：
