Happiness is for everyone. You don't need to care about those people who have beautiful houses with large gardens and swimming pools or those who have nice cars and a lot of money and so on. Those who have big houses may often feel lonely and those who have cars may want to walk on the country roads at their free time.
In fact happiness is always around you if you put your heart into it. When you are in trouble at school, your friends will help you. When you study hard at your lessons, your parents are always taking good care of your life and your health. When you get success, your friends will say congratulations to you. When you do something wrong, people around you will help you to correct it. And when you do something good to others, you will feel happy too. All these are your happiness. If you notice them you can see that happiness is always around you.
Happiness is not the same as money. It is a feeling of your heart. When you are poor, you can also say you are very happy because you have something else that can't be bought with money. When you meet with difficulties, you can say loudly you are very happy because you have more chances to challenge yourselves. So you cannot always say you are poor and you have bad luck. If you take every chance you get, you will be a happy and lucky person.

I will never forget the lesson about my window. Four years ago, I moved to a house in a large town. One of my new neighbors' house was only a few feet away from mine. There lived a woman. Through one of my windows, I could see her reading by her window every afternoon
Several months later, I found I couldn't see the woman clearly. I thought her window was too dirty. I said to myself, 'Why doesn't she clean her window? It looks terrible!
One afternoon, I decided to clean my house including(包括) the window. I felt tired after three hours of hard work. So I sat down by the window for a rest. What a surprise! I could see the woman reading there clearly again! By that time, I realized that my own window was too dirty, not hers! I really felt ashamed for myself.

One day, while I was waiting for my father, I saw a little boy, around two years old, running freely on the grass as his mother watched from a short distance. The boy had a big smile on his face as if he had just been set free from some sort of prison(监狱) . The boy would then fall to the grass, get up, without looking back at his mother, run as fast as he could, again, still with a smile on his face, as if nothing had happened.
At that moment, I thought to myself, "Why aren't most adults this way?" Most adults, when they fall down, make a big deal out of it and don't even make a second attempt. They would be so embarrassed that they would not try again if someone saw them fall. Or, because they fall, they would find a good excuse for themselves that they're not fit for it. They would end up being too afraid to attempt again for fear of failure(失败) .
However, with kids, when they fall down, they don't consider their falling down as a failure, instead, they treat it as a learning experience. They try again and again until they succeed. The answer must be that they have not connected "falling down" with the word "failure". What's more, they probably think to themselves that it's quite okay to fall down and that it's not wrong to do so. In other words, they allow themselves to make mistakes, so they remain energetic.
I was deeply impressed by the boy's persistence(坚持不懈) and the manner in which he did.

A. He cried and lay on the grass.
B. He asked his mother for help.

D. He got up and stood there crying.
（2）In the writer's opinion, what might the little boy regard his falling down as?
A. A failure.
B. A joke.
C. An interesting game.
D. A learning experience.（3）In the writer's opinion, why can't many adults succeed?
A. Because they are afraid of being embarrassed.
B. Because they can't find a good excuse.
C. Because once they fail, they won't attempt again.
D. Because they don't allow themselves to make mistakes.
（4）The underlined word " attempt" in Paragraph 2 means .
D. 怀疑（5）What does the writer want to tell us?
A. Practice makes perfect.
B. Failure is the mother of success.
C. All roads lead to Rome.
D. Each coin has two sides.

（4）词义猜测题。根据They would be so embarrassed that they would not try again.大部分的成年人，当他们失败的时候只会觉得尴尬，不愿意再做第二次尝试。故选A。
One Saturday, we were preparing to go away for the weekend when my daughter heard cries for help. When I went out, I discovered our elderly neighbor had fallen on her front steps. She was clearly in pain, so I helped her inside her house and settled here on the bed.
I noticed her room was very narrow and dark. It was obvious she hadn't cleaned it for a long time. She insisted she didn't need an ambulance（救护车）and that someone would be around soon, so I left her with a bottle of water at her side.
As I left I felt sad when I realized that we hadn't communicated with her, except a few smiles, for the past 18 months. She didn't know my name and I didn't know hers, and I hadn't even noticed that she hadn't been outside for weeks because of bad pain in her back.
That weekend I visited my grandmother for her 80th birthday and noticed how clean and spacious her flat seemed in comparison to my neighbour's. My neighbour, as far as I knew, had no family regularly dropping by.
When I returned home I went to visit her. Very grateful to see me, she explained she was okay. Yet, unable to bend down due to her back, her kitchen was filling with garbage that she was unable to take out by herself.
We've become good friends and chat every second day. She keeps thanking me for my kindness, but I enjoy helping her. Now, every time I return from putting out her garbage, collecting her mail or just chatting, I feel a deep sense of satisfaction and peace.

It happened many years ago, but I still remember it clearly. That day I was invited to work as a contest judge (评委) at a college. All of the students had been given a piece of paper with a topic on it. The first one to speak looked a little unhappy. “My fellow students and respected judges,” he said loudly, “this is an unfair (不公平的) contest!” “I have been given this paper,” he continued, “to speak on a topic with just a few minutes’ preparation while those coming after me have more time to work on their speeches!” He then left the stage and went out of the hall.
I met him late r by chance. “Who says life is fair?” I asked him with a smile, and I asked him to walk with me to my car. “Have you seen the numbers they show when a new car is being introduced into the market, saying how economic (经济的) it is?” “Yes,” he nodded “But they put a line after all these numbers. They say all the numbers are in ideal (理想的) road conditions!”
“Yes,” he said again. “Can you show me some ideal road conditions?” I asked him，and he smiled. “The car that sells well is the one that will provide power an d speed on the worst roads. That car is the winner!”

If you want to check where the nearest coffee shop to your home is, if you want to know how to get to a place in your city, or if you want to see where in the world your foreign pen friend lives, there's now a new free online map you can use.
Last month, China started its official online mapping service, Map World. "Through this free online service users can fly over mountains and valleys around the world and search for restaurants and traffic information across the country for free," said Xu Deming, director of the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping (SBSM). The bureau, which does China's surveying and mapping work, is in charge of the Map World project.
Users can get into Map World through www.tianditu.cn or www.chinaonmap.cn and search for 2- and 3-D images from across the world. The home page shows a view of the Great Wall.
"It took about two years to prepare the service with all the satellite(卫星) images taken from 2006 to 2010," said Jiang Jie, director of the database department(数据库部门) under SBSM.
The technology(技术) and website are still at an early stage. The images from inside China are detailed. Users can see close pictures of roadsides. But the views of places outside China are less clear.
Service providers have more than 80 machines, with the ability to deal with 10 million requests (请求) daily, while Google Earth, Google's mapping service, has thousands of machines, Jiang said. "Our map service can update(更新) data about twice a year, but Google Earth can update its information every couple of minutes, through satellites," Jiang said.
The bureau said it will continue developing Map World. At the same time, you can have a try for yourself. Some users have given their opinions about the service after trying it. One student in Beijing said that Map World even shows the small bookstore near her school.
（1）What is the main purpose of the first paragraph?
A. To show how valuable the service is.
B. To introduce the new online photo-map of China.
C. To show the importance of the new online photo-map.
D. To tell how popular the new online photo-map is in China.
