You may t hink people in such a glamorous, fun-filled place are happier than others.  If so, you have some mistaken ideas about the nature of happiness.     Many intelligent people still equate happiness with fun. The truth is  that fun and happiness have little or nothing in common. Fun is what we e xperience during an act. Happiness is what we experience after an act. It  is a deeper, more abiding emotion.     Going to an amusement park or ball game, watching a movie or televisi on, are fun activities that help us relax, temporarily forget our problems  and maybe even laugh. But they do not bring happiness, because their posi tive effects end when the fun ends.     I have often thought that if Hollywood stars have a role to     play, it is to teach us that happiness has nothing to do with fun. Th ese rich, beautiful individuals have constant access to glamorous parties,  fancy cars, expensive homes, everything that spells “ happiness”. But i n memoir after memoir, celebrities reveal the unhappiness hidden beneath a ll their fun: depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, broken     marriages, troubled children and profound loneliness.     Ask a bachelor why he resists marriage even though he finds dating to  be less and less satisfying. If he’s honest, he will tell you that he is  afraid of making a commitment. For commitment is in fact quite painful. T he single life is filled with fun, adventure and excitement. Marriage has  such moments, but they are not its most distinguishing features.     Similarly, couples that choose not to have children are deciding in f avor of painless fun over painful happiness. They can dine out ever they w ant and sleep as late as they want. Couples with infant children are lucky  to get a whole night’s sleep or a three-day vacation. I don’t know any  parent who would choose the word fun to describe raising children.     Understanding and accepting that true happiness has nothing to do wit h fun is one of the most liberating realizations we can ever come to. It l iberates time: now we can devote more hours to activities that can genuine ly increase our happiness. It liberates money: buying that new car or thos e fancy clothes that will do nothing to increase our happiness now seems p ointless. And it liberates us from envy: we now understand that all those  rich and glamorous people we were so sure are happy because they are alway s having so much fun actually may not be happy at all.     1.Which of the following is true? A.Fun creates long-lasting satisfac tion. B.Fun provides enjoyment while pain leads to happiness. C.Happiness  is enduring whereas fun is short-lived. D.Fun that is long-standing may le ad to happiness.     2.To the author, Hollywood stars all have an important role to play t hat is to __. A.rite memoir after memoir about their happiness. B.tell the  public that happiness has nothing to do with fun. C.teach people how to e njoy their lives.     D.bring happiness to the public instead of going to glamorous parties .     3.In the author’s opinion, marriage. A.affords greater fun. B.leads  to raising children. C.indicates commitment. D.ends in pain. page 1
    4.Couples having infant children. A.are lucky since they can have a w hole night’s sleep. B.find fun in tucking them into bed at night. C.find  more time to play and joke with them. D.derive happiness from their endeav or.     5.If one get the meaning of the true sense of happiness, he will__. A .stop playing games and joking with others. B.make the best use of his tim e increasing happiness. C.give a free hand to money. D.keep himself with h is family.     第一篇答案:CBCDB     第二篇(Unit one Passage 2)     Once it was possible to define male and female roles easily by the di vision of labor. Men worked outside the home and earned the income to supp ort their families, while women cooked the meals and took care of the home  and the children. These roles were firmly fixed for most people, and ther e was not much opportunity for women to exchange their roles. But by the m iddle of this century, men’s and women’s roles were becoming less firmly  fixed.     In the 1950s, economic and social success was the goal of the typical  American. But in the 1960s a new force developed called the countercultur e. The people involved in this movement did not value the middle-class Ame rican goals. The countercultur
