Dreams! How nice do they sound? I am not talking about the dreams we have when we are asleep but about the life long aspirations in each one of us. I am sure that all of us have goals in our lives. It could be the goal to be the next millionaire or to be a popular celebrity. Even if your goal is something small, you should be proud that you do have a goal.
Some never tend to think about goals in life. Although this may sound as a surprise it is true. These people take life as it comes without planning and goes with the flow of events in their life. But again there are many who love planning for everything in their life.
In fact, having a goal in life would make anyone more focused and determined in reaching that target. Wish to get a job as a web designer? Your dream can come true if you work on your dream. How, you might ask. Start learning web-designing skills and when you’re skilled, you will find that you can get your desired job easily. So, do you see that all it takes for your goals to materialize is some work on your part? I have heard some complaint that their dreams are just dreams and can never become true. Well, it all depends on what kind of goals you’re aiming at. If you’re dying to be the next star in Hollywood but you’re camera-shy and you don’t know anything about acting, your dream to make it big in Hollywood might remain as a dream. But if you’re very determined to make it and you’re already enrolling yourself in acting classes and talking to experienced actors about acting, you can be pretty sure that you’re already half-way there to make your dream into a reality. After all, if one is willing to put in the efforts, their goals can become within reach.
So never say that your dream will forever be a dream. Go ahead, plan on making that dream a reality and watch how easily you can attain that target.

Nowadays playing computer games is a very common hobby, especially among young people and teenagers. However, there are many arguments on whether computer games are advantageous to people or not.
Although many people doubt the advantages of computer games, if used wisely computer games can actually be used in educational purposes, for example typing games to allow students to learn typing English or Chinese. Also another advantage of computer game is that the games may be played together among friends or family members, which may improve the relationship between family members and allow parents to know more about their children on their hobbies and interests.
However, computer games if misused can also have very bad effects on human beings. Firstly spending long time in front of the computer screen will bring various health problems, such as eye sore, back pain and headache. Also if people spend too much time on computer games rather than the work they should do, for example school work for students and projects and presentations for employees, it may have bad effects on their real life and social life status.
It is true for everything that it is beneficial if used wisely, therefore although computer games are widely said to be bad for people, it can still be used as a good tool if used wisely.

I have a friend, who is head of one of our largest corporations. He is approaching his middle seventies, and he is still a great leader. He, too, never talks of the past. Instead, he tackles the problems of each day in his stride, brims with plans for the future and, incidentally, shoots in the low seventies on any golf course. He is a happy man because he is productive.
Two of the hardest things to accomplish in this world are to acquire wealth by honest effort and, having gained it, to learn how to use it properly. Recently I walked into the locker room of a rather well-known golf club after finishing a round. It was in the late afternoon and most of the members had left for their homes. But a half-dozen or so men past middle age were still seated at tables talking aimlessly and drinking more than the quantity that was good for them. These same men can be found there day after day, and, strangely enough, each one of these men had been a man of affairs and wealth, successful in business and respected in the community. If material prosperity were the chief necessity for happiness, then each one should have been happy. Yet, it seemed to me, something very important was missing, else—there would not have been the constant effort to escape the realities of life through scotch and soda. They knew, each one of them, that their productivity had ceased(停止). When a fruit tree ceases to bear its fruit, it is dying. And it is even so with man.
What is the answer to a long and happy existence in this world of ours? I think I found it long ago in a passage from the book of Genesis which caught my eye while I was looking through my Bible. The words were few, but they became memorably impressed on my mind. “In the sweat of the face shall you eat the bread. ”
To me, that has been a challenge from my earliest memories. In fact, the battle of life, of existence, is a challenge to everyone. The immortal(不朽的)words of St. Paul, too, have been and always will be a great inspiration to me. At the end of the road I want to be able to feel that I have fought a good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.
12. Which of the following is indicated in the second paragraph?
13. The underlined sentence “In the sweat of the face shall you eat the bread” means“ ”.
