I adjusted my direction to go around it on the part of the path that wasn't covered by water or mud. As I reached the pool, I was suddenly attacked! Yet I did nothing for the attack. It was so unpredictable and from somewhere totally unexpected. I was surprised as well as unhurt though I had been struck four or five times. I backed up a foot and my attacker stopped attacking me. Had I been hurt I wouldn't have found it amusing. And I was laughing. After all, I was being attacked by a butterfly! Having stopped laughing, I took a step forward. My attacker rushed me again. He charged
towards me at full speed, attempting to hurt me but in vain. For a second time, I took a step backwards while my attacker paused. I wasn't sure what to do. After all, it's just not everyday that one is attacked by a butterfly. I stepped back to look the situation over. My attacker moved back to land on the ground. That's when I discovered why my attacker was charging me only moments earlier. He had a mate(伙伴) and she was dying. Sitting close beside her, he opened and closed his wings as if to fan her. I could only admire the love and courage of that butterfly in his concern for his mate. He had taken it up on himself to attack me for his mate's sake(利益), even though she was clearly dying and I was so large. He did so just to give her those extra few precious moments of life, should I have been careless enough to step on her. His courage in attacking something thousands of times larger and heavier than himself just for his mate's safety seemed admirable. I couldn't do anything other than reward him by walking on the more difficult side of the pool. He had truly earned those moments to be with her, undisturbed. Since then, I've used that butterfly’s courage as an inspiration and to remind myself that good things are worth fighting for. 56. The writer changed his direction while walking down a path because he wanted________. A. to get close to a butterfly. B. to escape a sudden attack. C. to look over the bad situation. D. to avoid getting his shoes dirty. 57. What made the man feel funny? A. Making the attacker pause. B. Being stepped on by his mate. C. Being attacked by a butterfly. D. Discovering the angry butterfly. 58. Which of the following words can best describe the butterfly? A. careless B. amusing C. aggressive D. courageous 59. From this experience the man learned_____. A. how he should deal with attacks B. how to deal with challenges in his life C. people should protect butterflies D. people should show sympathy to the weak B This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend （超越） it. Once we truly know that life is difficult---once we truly understand and accept it---then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters. Most do not fully see this truth. Instead they complain about their problems and difficulties as if life should be easy. It seems to them that difficulties represent a special kind of suffering especially forced upon them or else upon their families, their class, or even their nation. What makes life difficult is that the process of facing and solving problems is a painful one. Problems, depending on their nature, cause us sadness, or loneliness or regret or anger or fear. These are uncomfortable feelings, often as painful as any kind of physical pain. And since life causes an endless series of problems, life is always difficult and is full of pain as well as joy. Yet, it is in this whole process of solving problems that life has its meaning. Problems are the serious test that tells us success from failure. When we desire to encourage the growth of human spirit, we encourage the human ability to solve problems, just as in school we set problems for our children to solve. It is through the pain of meeting and working out problems that we learn. As Benjamin Franklin said, those things that hurt, instruct. It is for this reason that wise people learn not to fear but to welcome the pain of problems. 60. From the passage, it can be inferred that ______. A. everybody has problems B. we become stronger by meeting and solving the problems of life C. life is difficult because our problems bring us pain D. people like to complain about their problems 61. The writer probably used just one short sentence in the first paragraph to ______. A. save space B. persuade readers C. get readers’ attention D. make readers laugh 62. The saying from Benjamin Franklin "Those things that hurt, instruct" suggests that ______. A. we do not learn from experience B. we do not learn when we are in pain C. pain teaches us important lessons
D. pain cannot be avoided 63. The main idea of Paragraph 3 is that ______. A. most people feel life is easy B. most people complain about how hard their lives are C. the writer feels life is easy D. the writer likes to complain about his problems C There is a big question making the rounds among the parents at my daughter’s class. Should the kids refer to the parents’ friends as “Mr. Jones” or “Mrs. Smith”, rather than using their first names? I was quite shocked, having come from a home where it would have been unheard of to refer to one of my parents’ friends by their first names. This was reserved for only the closest of family friends and relatives, and even they always had “Aunt” or “Uncle” in front their name. Respect is something that is earned. Unlike many of the other virtues(美德) we try to nurture(培养)in our kids, respect is a bit more complicated. It is not only necessary when dealing well with others, but the virtue of self-respect is critical for kids to succeed and feel good about themselves and their choices throughout their lives. There are several factors that can have a big impact on kids and their ability to be respectful. The first one to consider is manners. Calling adults by their surnames(姓氏), setting proper examples during sporting events and while driving, and how we talk to each other in our homes all can have an enormous effect on a child’s concept of respect and how important it is. Many of these seemingly trivial(微小的)ideas have become almost outdated, but one should seriously consider the value of these ideas before casting them aside. It is easy to become unaware of these behaviors. Try to keep track of how often your child is subjected(经受) to this kind of disrespect. The media, as you may have guessed, plays a large part in the increase in disrespect. Movies are equally to blame, with a PG movie often containing an abundant amount of profane language. These factors and others all contribute to an alarming increase in disrespect in society. If we don’t step in and change course, we will find living in a morally respectful culture unlikely. 64. What does the author think of kids’ referring to parents’ friends by their first names? A. It is common in his family. B. It is OK if the friends are close. C. Such behavior lacks respect. D. Such behavior sounds funny. 65. What advice does the author give in the passage? A. Parents should correct kids’ bad behavior before children. B. Parents should mind their behavior before children. C. Parents should nurture kids’ self-respect from birth. D. Parents should choose suitable movies for kids. 66. The underlined word “profane” in the fourth paragraph means “________”. A. rude B. simple C. complicated D. respectful 67. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Teaching kids respect B. How to respect others C. Respect is a virtue D. Respecting others is respecting yourself D Recently we’ve observed an increasing request from disadvantaged and regional(地区的) schools for attending one of our zoo areas at no cost or partly paid some organizations. Zoos Victoria believes that all children should have the opportunity to have an early memory of visiting the zoo, and gain an understanding of the wild and natural world that humans share with animals.
