1、Keep Your Direction 坚持你的方向 、
What would you do if you failed? Many people may choose to give up. However, the surest way to success is to keep your direction and stick to your goal. On your way to success, you must keep your direction. It is just like a lamp, guiding you in darkness and helping you overcome obstacles on your way. Otherwise, you will easily get lost or hesitate to go ahead. Direction means objectives. You can get nowhere without an objective in life. You can try to write your objective on paper and make some plans to achieve it. In this way, you will know how to arrange your time and to spend your time properly. And you should also have a belief that you are sure to succeed as long as you keep your direction all the time.

  2、Life is hard. We should not give up hope. By the time we have given up, we are finished. Chances are always there. We have to grab every single opportunity...to help, to love and to serve. To live our life happier, full of joy, we have to set our goal and even dream big. If we choose the shortest path in life, we will never learn. To be or not to be, we have to be SOMEBODY. The fastest way to gain love is to love others first!Do not hide your talent, your knowledge and your beautiful heart. Go for your dream and live for it.

milkmaid and her pail 挤牛奶的姑娘
A milkmaid was going to the market. She carried her milk in a pail on her head. As she went along she began calculating what she would buy after she had sold the milk. "Ill buy a new dress, and when I go to the ball, all the young men will dance with me!" As she spoke she tossed her head back. The pail immediately fell off her head, and all the milk was spilt. The girl went back without anything. She felt very sad. "Ah, my child," said her mother. "Do not count your chickens before they are hatched."
  4、The positive solution to a problem may require courage to initiate it. When you control your reaction to the seemingly un-controllable problemof life, then in fact you do control the problems effect on you. Your reaction to the problem is the last word! Thats the bottom line. What will you let this problem do to you? It can make you tender or tough.It can make you better or bitter. It all depends on you.
Is A Choice 成功是一种选择
All of us ought to be able to brace ourselves for the predictable challenges and setbacks that crop up everyday.If we expect that life wont be perfect,well be able to avoid that impulse to quit.But even if you are strong enough to persist the obstacle course of life and work, sometimes you will encounter an adverse event that will completely knock you on your back. Whether its a financial loss,the loss of respect of your peers or loved ones,or some other traumatic event in your life these major setbacks leave you doubting yourself and wondering if things can ever change for the better again. Adversity happens to all of us, and it happens all the time. Some form of major adversity is either going to be there or its lying in wait just around the corner. To ignore adversity is to succumb to the ultimate self dohision. But you must recognize that history is full of examples of men and women who achieved greatness despite facing hurdles so steep that easily could have crashed their spirit and left them lying in the dust.Moses was a stuttered,yet he was called on to be the voice of God.Abraham Lincoln overcomes a dif-during the Civil War to become arguably our greatest president ever.Helen Keller made an impact on the world despite being deaf,dumb,and blind from an early age. Fraklin Roosevelt had polio. There are endless examples.These were people who not only looked adversity in the face but learned valuable lessons about overcoming difficult circumstances and were able to move ahead.
My Dad taught me to never let anyone push me around. As long as I can remember I have always confronted bullies and stood up for myself. My Dad ? I sure miss him? taught me to never let anyone, or anything push me around. He told me that our problems become much worse when you let someone run over you unchecked. I’ve since learned that this applies both to our personal and business lives. Dealing with a bully in Marine Corps’ boot camp.
Back in 1968 during Marine Corps boot camp at Paris Island, I learned a lesson about dealing with bullies. One of the members of our platoon was a classic bully. He was mean, huge, muscular and a bit on the dumb side. Anyone he was around he purposely terrorized. Most of the recruits that he bullied simply took it and shrunk away from him. Then he would continue to bully and pick on them without mercy. The day the bully decided to pick on me. One day, this monster (whose name I cannot remember) wound up being sent back to the barracks with me and several others for clean-up duty. Once back at the barracks he started pushing me and even slapped me in the back of the head. I knew that if I didn’t stand up to him, I would become his new whipping boy ? so I turned around and with all my might, made a fist and hit him square in the jaw. I expected him to go down but instead he just stood there somewhat stunned that someone like me would attack him. To my disbelief and horror, he simply shook off the punch, gave me a look of sudden anger, clenched his fists and roared that he was going to kill me.

I have heard one sad story of a hitchhiker who went into a shop and saw the sign "Lift" but found it too heavy, then saw the sign "Pet Supplies" so he did, this wasnt too bad but then he went outside and saw the sign "Compact Cars" and went to prison for ten years.

  3、St Peters question 圣彼德的问题
Three men, a doctor, an accountant and a lawyer are dead and they appear in front of St Peter. St Peter tells them that they have to answer one question in order to get to Heaven. He looks at the doctor and asks, "There was a movie that was made about a ship that sank after hitting an iceberg, what was its name?" The doctor answers, "The Titanic" and he is sent through. He then looks at the accountant and say, "How many people died in that ship?" Fortunately the accountant had just watched the movie and he answers, "1 500!". St Peter sends him through and then finally turns to the lawyer and commands, in a very heavy voice, "Name them!".

  4、A Problem in Arithmetic 一个数学问题
Bill is a good student and an intelligent boy. He likes to study arithmetic, and he can do all of the arithmetic problems in his book easily. One day on his way to school Bill passed a fruit store. There was a sign in the window which said, "Apple-Six for five cents." An idea came to Bill and he went into the store. "How much are the apples?" he asked the store. "Six for five cents." "But I dont want six apples." "How many apples do you want?" "It is not a question of how many apples I want. It is a problem in arithmetic." "What do you mean by a problem in arithmetic?" asked the man. "Well, if six apples are wroth five cents, then five apples are worth four cents, four apples are worth three cents, three apples are worth rwo cents, two apples are worth one cent and one apple is worth nothing. I only want one apple, and if one apple is worth nothing then it is not necessary for me to pay you." Bill picked out a good apple, began to eat it, and walked happily out of the store. The man looked at the young boy with such surprise that he could not say a word.

A man went into a restaurant in a strange city and asked the waiter for some food. The waiter asked him what he wanted. Since the man was kind of homesick and lonely, he said, “How about a meatloaf, some bread and a kind word.” When the waiter returned with the meatloaf and the bread, the man said, “Where’s the good word for me?” The waiter put down the meatloaf and sighed, then whispered into the man’s ear, “Don’t eat the meatloaf!”
