In one way, it may be thought that failure （失败）is a part of life. In another, failure may be regarded
as a step towards success.
The "spider-story" is often told as an example of this. Robert
Bruce, leader of the Scots in the 13th century, was hiding in a hole on a hill
from the English. He watched a spider(蜘蛛) making a web. Bruce is said to have got confidence from this and
to have gone on to beat the English. Edison, too, the inventor of the light
bulb(电灯泡) , made hundreds of models that failed before
he found the right way to make one.
So what? First, always think about your failure. What caused it? Were you
in high spirit then? What can you change so that things will go right the next
Second, is the goal(目标)
you are trying to reach the right one? Try to do some thinking about what your
real goals may be. Think about this question: "If I am successful in this,
where will it get me?" This may help to prevent failure in the things you
shouldn''t be doing anyway.
The third thing to remember about failure is that it''s a part of life.
Learn to "live with yourself” even though you may have failed.
Remember, "You can''t win them all. “

Table Manners In America
Don’t circle your plate with your arms. If you do so, you will
become the focus（焦点）of the table. Everyone would
wonder, “Is there anything wrong with the food?”This may give a wrong message
that you don’t like the food or something like that.
Don’t push the plate back when finished. Leave it where it was. Do
you want to let the hostess（女主人）know that you’ve just
done a labour?
Don’t lean（倚靠）back and say“ I’m through” or“
I’m full”. Just put the fork and knife across the plate. That’s all.
Don’t cut up everything before you start to eat. Cut only one or two
bites （块）at a time.
Never take a huge mouthful of anything. Do you want to show how
hungry you are? Don’t do that. It’s not so good.
It’s never good to reach across the table for anything. If the thing
you want is not at hand, simply ask the nearest person for help, like“Mrs.
Smith, could you pass me the dish?”

A four- year- old girl is lying in the arms of a doctor. She has
just become motherless. The bombing（轰炸）destroyed（毁坏）her home and killed her mother.
Every day we see pictures like this on TVs or in newspapers. We see
young Iraqi children begging for food and water from American and British
soldiers a they move through towns and cities towards the capital, Baghdad（巴格达）. We see these children following grown - ups, carrying bags of things
almost at the same size as their small bodies as they flee（逃离）their homes in Baghdad.

He tries to comfort（安慰）him by saying, “The
bombs are far away from us. The Americans are fighting the soldiers. We are
going to be all right. ”Even though Abu knows this isn’t always the truth. But
what else can he do? In Baghdad, parents give their children sleeping pills to
make them sleep so that they won’t hear the sound of bombing. And all the
schools are closed.
“All we can do is to listen to and hear the war, ”said Abu. “We, all
the people and the children, have to live in fear. We feel hopeless and
helpless. We don’t know where the next bombs are going? We can do nothing but
wait to be killed. ”

Two people sit down to play Go(围棋). One of the players is an old man.
He is now 89 years old. He has spent all of his life playing this game. The
other person is a young woman. She has been playing Go for only three years.
Before this, the woman was an expert(专家) at playing
computer games. Now she plays Go the same way she played computer games－by becoming a machine herself.
They will play many games, until they know who the
winner is. The woman shows no feelings but thinking about all the possible ways
of placing her next stone. The old man, on the other hand, looks at the
movements of her hands and of her face. This has always helped him to win.
He wins the first three games. She wins the next game,
and the man is surprised. He has never lost to a woman. The old man worries
about the way the young woman is playing the game. He can''t read her face; he
does not understand her way of playing.
"The way I think about the game" says the
woman, "is that it is steps for getting what I want." Again, the old
man is surprised. For him, the game is a way of life itself, and not a model of
"There is no more beauty any longer. Everything is
science and rules. Everything is about winning. Nothing is about playing"
They cannot agree with each other; but it is not
"Change is a necessary part of life" thinks
"Playing is as important as winning" thinks
They start to play their final game.
