r William Shakespeare

writer; talented; imaginative; man of all ages “Life is a stage ...”
Thomas Edison Born in America, Thomas Edison was a great scientist and inventor. He was once thought to be a boy who was not worth educating. In fact, he was a man full of imagination. I admire Edison a lot because of his great contribution to the world. He had more than 1,000 inventions.
In his lifetime, he was always eager to know how things worked, which helped him to earn the nickname “the Wizard of Melo Park”. He was also so diligent that he worked day and night. And this explained why he had so many inventions. What impresses me most is his famous saying, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
Probably I cannot be an Edison myself, but I can be a hardworking learner. From him, I realize the secret to success is not when and where you were born, but what you are doing and how you do it in your life. （湖南 2008）

佳句集锦 1. In his lifetime, he was always eager to know how things worked, which helped him to earn the nickname “the Wizard of Melo Park”. (本句使用了固定短语be eager to do sth.; how引导宾语从句作 know的宾语； which引导非限制性定语 从句，代表整个主句内容。高级词汇： eager, nickname, wizard。)
2. What impresses me most is his famous saying, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.” (what引导主语从句；引号内的名言是 saying的同位语，这句名言的使用增加了 文章的力度。)
3. From him, I realize the secret to success is not when and where you were born, but what you are doing and how you do it in your life. (realize后的宾语从句中使 用了not ... but ... 句型；when，where, what, how分别引导四个表语从句。)

One possible version: Born in 1880, Helen Keller is a well-known American woman writer with disabilities. At the age of 19 months, it was unexpected that Helen Keller was robbed by illness of sight and hearing, which caused her to become mute. Fortunately, when Helen was 7 years old, she met Miss Sullivan who is very kind-hearted and helpful.
Miss Sullivan managed to help Helen learn to read, write and talk. With the help of Miss Sullivan, Helen went to study at Radcliff College and graduated from it with honors at the age of 24. During her whole life, Helen wrote some excellent books, such as The Story of My Life and Let Us Have Faith. Besides, she devoted all her lifetime to working for the blind and the deaf-mute both at home and abroad.
All in all, Helen’s example has encouraged a lot of people whether they are normal or disabled.
