The journey my daughter Cathy has had with her swimming is as long as it is beautiful.

Cathy suffered some terrible  in her early childhood. After years of regular treatment, she  became healthy.

Two years ago, while Cathy was watching the Olympics, a dream came into her sweet little head—to be a swimmer. Last summer, she wanted to  out local swim team. She practiced hard and finally  it. The team practice,  was a rough start. She coughed and choked and could hardly   her first few weeks. Hearing her coughing bitterly one night, I decided to  her from it all. But Cathy woke me up early next morning, wearing her swimsuit    to go! I told her she shouldn’t swim after a whole night’s coughing, but she refused to  and insisted she go .

From that day on, Cathy kept swimming and didn’t  a single practice. She had a   intention within herself to be the best she could be. My ten—year—old was growing and changing right before my eyes, into this   human being with a passion and a mission. There were moments of   of course: often she would be the last swimmer in the race. It was difficult for Cathy to accept that she wasn’t a  ---ever. But that didn’t stop her from trying.

Then came the final awards ceremony at the end of the year. Cathy didn’t expect any award but was still there to   her friends and praise their accomplishments. As the ceremony was nearing the end, I suddenly heard the head coach   , “The highest honor goes to Cathy!” Looking around, he continued, “Cathy has inspired us with her    and enthusiasm.   skills and talents bring great success, the most valuable asset(财富)one can hold is the heart.”

It was the greatest   of my daughter’s life. With all she hade been   in her ten years, this was the hour of true triumph(成功).

B

Every man wants his son to be somewhat of a clone, not in features but in footsteps. As he grows you also age, and your ambitions become more unachievable. You begin to realize that your boy, in your footsteps, could probably accomplish what you hoped for. But footsteps can be muddied and they can go off in different directions.

My son Jody has hated school since day one in kindergarten. Science projects waited until the last moment. Book reports weren’t written until the final threat.

I’ve been a newspaperman all my adult life. My daughter is a university graduate working toward her master’s degree in English. But Jody? When he entered the tenth grade he became a “vo-tech” student(技校学生). They’re called “motorheads” by the rest of the student body.

When a secretary in my office first called him “motorhead”, I was shocked. “Hey, he’s a good kid,” I wanted to say. “And smart, really.”

I learned later that motorheads are, indeed, different. They usually have dirty hands and wear dirty work clothes. And they don’t often make school honor rolls(光荣榜).

But being the parent of a motorhead is itself an experience in education. We who labor in clean shirts in offices don’t have the abilities that motorheads have. I began to learn this when I had my car crashed. The cost to repair it was estimated at $800. “Hey, I can fix it,” said Jody. I doubted it , but let him go ahead, for I had nothing to lose.

My son ,with other motorheads, fixed the car. They got parts(零件)from a junkyard, non-toasting toaster have been fixed. Neighbours and co-workers trust their car repair to him.

Since that first repair job, a broken air-conditioner, a non-functioning washer and a non-toasting toaster have been fixed. Neighbors and co-workers trust their car repairs to him.

These kids are happiest when doing repairs. They joke and laugh and are living in their own relaxed world. And their minds are bright despite their dirty hands and clothes.

I have learned a lot from my motorhead: publishers need printers, engineers need mechanics, and architects need builders. Most important, I have learned that fathers don’t need clones in footsteps or anywhere else.

My son may never make the school honor roll. But he made mine.

41. What used to be the author’s hope for his son?

ATo avoid becoming his clone.

BTo resemble him in appearance.

CTo develop in a different direction.

DTo reach the author’s unachieved goals.

42. What can we learn about the author’s children?

AHis daughter does better in school.

BHis daughter has got a master’s degree.

CHis son tried hard to finish homework.

DHis son couldn’t write his book reports.

43. The author let his son repair the car because he believed that_______.

AHis son had the ability to fix it.

Bit would save him much time.

Cit wouldn’t cause him any more loss

Dother motorheads would come to help.

44. In the author’s eyes, motorheads are _______.

Atidy and hardworking

Bcheerful and smart

Clazy but bright

Drelaxed but rude

45. What did the author realize in the end?

AIt is unwise to expect your child to follow your path.

BIt is important for one to make the honor roll.

CArchitects play a more important role than builders.

DMotorheads have greater ability than office workers.

C

When John was growing up, other kids felt sorry for him. His parents always had him weeding the garden, carrying out the garbage and delivering newspapers. But when John reached adulthood, he was better off than his childhood playmates. He had more job satisfaction, a better marriage and was healthier. Most of all, he was happier. Far happier.

These are the findings of a 40-year study that followed the lives of 456 teenage boys from Boston. The study showed that those who had worked as boys enjoyed happier and more productive lives than those who had not. “Boys who worked in the home or community gained competence (能力) and came to feel they were worthwhile members of society,” said George Vaillant, the psychologist (心理学家) who made the discovery. “And because they felt good about themselves, others felt good about them.”

Vaillant’s study followed these males in great detail. Interviews were repeated at ages 25, 31 and 47. Under Vaillant, the researchers compared the men’s mental-health scores with their boyhood-activity scores with their boyhood-activity scores. Points were awarded for part-time jobs, housework, effort in school, and ability to deal with problems.

The link between what the men had done as boys and how they turned out as adults was surprisingly sharp. Those who had done the most boyhood activities were twice as likely to have warm relations with a wide variety of people, five times as likely to be well paid and 16 times less likely to have been unemployed. The researchers also found that IQ and family social and economic class made no real difference in how the boys turned out. Working----at any age----is important. Childhood activities help a child develop responsibility, independence, confidence and competence---the underpinnings (基础) of emotional health. They also help him understand that people must cooperate and work toward common goals. The most competent adults are those who know how to do this. Yet work isn’t everything. As Tolstoy once said, “One can live magnificently in this world if one knows how to work and how to love, to work for the person one loves and to love one’s work.”

46. What do we know about John?

AHe enjoyed his career and marriage.

BHe had few childhood playmates.

CHe received little love from his family.

DHe was envied by others in his childhood.

47. Vaillant’s words in Paragraph 2 serve as _____.

Aa description of personal values and social values

Ban analysis of how work was related to competence

Can example for parents’ expectations of their children

Dan explanation why some boys grew into happy men

48. Vaillant’s team obtained their findings by _____.

Arecording the boys’ effort in school

Bevaluating the men’s mental health

Ccomparing different sets of scores

Dmeasuring the men’s problem solving ability

49. What does the underlined word “sharp” probably mean in Paragraph 4?

AQuick to react

BHaving a thin edge

CClear and definite

Dsudden and rapid

50. What can be inferred from the last paragraph?

Acompetent adults know more about love than work.

BEmotional health is essential to a wonderful adult life.

CLove brings more joy to people than work does.

DIndependence is the key to one’s success.

D

Failure is probably the most exhausting experience a person ever has. There is nothing more tiring than not succeeding.

We experience this tiredness in two ways: as start-up fatigue(疲惫) and performance fatigue. In the former case, we keep putting off a task because it has either too boring or too difficult. And the longer we delay it, the more tired we feel.

Such start-up fatigue is very real, even if not actually physical, not something in our muscles and bones. The solution is obvious though perhaps not easy to apply: always handle the most difficult job first.

Years ago, I was asked to write 102 essays on the great ideas of some famous authors. Applying my own rule, I determined to write them in alphabetical(按字母顺序), never letting myself leave out a tough idea. And I always started the day’s work with the difficult task of essay-writing. Experience proved that the rule works.

Performance fatigue is more difficult to handle. Though willing to get started, we cannot seem to do the job right. Its difficulties appear so great that, however hard we work, we fail again and again. In such a situation, I work as hard as I can-then let the unconscious take over.

When planning Encyclopaedia Britannica (《大英百科全书》), I had to create a table of contents based on the topics of its articles. Nothing like this had ever been done before, and day after dat I kept coming up with solutions, but none of them worked. My fatigue became almost unbearable.

One day, mentally exhausted, I wrote down all the reasons why this problem could not be solved. I tried to convince myself that the trouble was with the problem itself, not with me. Relived, I sat back in an easy chair and fell asleep.

An hour later, I woke up suddenly with the solution clearly in mind. In the weeks that followed, the solution which had come up in my unconscious mind provided correct at every step. Though I worked as hard as before, I felt no fatigue. Success was now as exciting as failure had been depressing.

Human beings, I believe must try to succeed. Success, then, means never feeling tired.

51. People with start-up fatigue are most likely to .

Adelay tasks

Bwork hard

Cseek help

Daccept failure

52. What does the author recommend doing to prevent start-up fatigue?

AWriting essays in strict order.

BBuilding up physical strength.

CLeaving out the toughest ideas.

DDealing with the hardest task first.

53. On what occasion does a person probably suffer from performance fatigue?

ABefore starting a difficult task.

BWhen all the solutions fail.

CIf the job is rather boring.

DAfter finding a way out.

54. According to the author, the unconscious mind may help us .

Aignore mental problems

Bget some nice sleep

Cgain complete relief

Dfind the right solution

55. What could be the best title for the passage?

ASuccess Is Built upon Failure

BHow to Handle Performance Fatigue

CGetting over Fatigue: A Way to Success

DFatigue: An Early Sign of Health Problems

阅读短文,并按照题目要求用英语回答问题。

I’m a 34-year-old man, married, lived in a nice house, and have a successful career as an educational consultant. But my life was not always so great. I had a learning disability from an early age. I went to a special school where I got plenty of extra help. Still, I suffered the rest of my school days in public schools.

My life improved remarkably when I discovered art. The art world gave me a chance to express myself without words. I went to a workshop and gradually got good at making things with clay(黏土). Here I learned my first important lesson: disabled as I was in language. I could still be smart and well express myself with clay. And my confidence came along.

I got my next lesson from rock climbing. It was a fun thing but I was scared from the start. I soon noticed it wasn’t a talent thing; it was practice. So I did it more. After about five years of climbing, I found myself in Yosemite Valley on a big wall. I learned that if you fall in love with something and do it all the time, you will get better at it.

Later I decided to apply my previous experience to learning how to read and write. Every day I practiced reading and writing, which I used to avoid as much as possible. After two hard years, I was literate.

Having gone through the long process with art, rock climbing, and reading and writing, now I’ve got to a point in my life where I know I am smart enough to dive into an area that is totally unknown, hard, but interesting.

56. What made the author’s school days difficult? (No more than 5 words)

57. Why did art give the author confidence? (No more than 10 words)

58. What lesson did the author learn from rock climbing? (No more than 15 words)

59. What is the meaning of the underlined part in Paragraph 4? (No more than 5 words)
