Kitty Magic After a meeting one night,I felt very tired.Eager to get home and get to sleep,I was approaching my car when I heard mew,mew,mew,mew...Looking under my car,I saw a teeny little kitten,shaking and crying,huddled close to the tire.I have never had a fondness cats.I‘m a dog person,thank you very much.I grew up with dogs all my young life and cats always bugged me.Kind of creeped me out.I especially hated going into houses that had cat boxes.I wondered if the residents just ignored the awful smell.Plus,cats always seemed to be all over everything――not to mention their hair.And I was semiallergic to them.Suffice it to say,I had never in my life gone out of my way a cat.But when I knelt down and saw this scared little red tabby mewing like crazy,something inside urged me to reach out to pick her up.She ran away immediately.I thought,Okay,well,I tried,but as I went to get into my car,I heard the kitten mewing again.That pitiful mewing really pulled at my heart,and I found myself crossing the street to try to find her.I found her and she ran.I found her again and she ran again.This went on and on.Yet I just couldn’t leave her.Finally,I was able to grab her.When I held her in my arms,she seemed so little and skinny and very sweet.And she stopped mewing!It was totally out of character,but I took her into my car with me.The kitty freaked out,screeching and running at lightning speed all over the car,until she settled herself right in my lap,of course.I didn’t know what I was going to do with her,and yet I felt compelled to bring her home.I drove home,worrying the whole way,because I knew my roommate was deathly allergic to cats.I got home very late,put the kitten in the front yard and left some milk her.I was half hoping she would run away by the time morning came.But in the morning she was still there,so I brought her to work with me.Luckily,I have a very sympathetic boss.Especially when it comes to animals.Once we had a hurt sparrow in the office weeks that he had found and nursed back to health.All day at work,I tried to find someone who would take the kitten,but all the cat lovers were full up.I still didn’t know what to do with the kitty,so I took her on some errands with me when I left work.Again she freaked out in the car and this time wedged herself under the seat.My last stop that afternoon was at my parents’ house.Recently my father had been diagnose d with prostate cancer.He had undergone hormone treatment and the doctors now felt they had arrested the cancer.At least the present.I liked to go there as often as I could.That afternoon,parked in front of my parents’ house,I was trying to coax the kitten out from under the seat when she zoomed out of the car and into the neighbors’ bushes.There are a lot of bushes in that neighborhood,and I realized after looking a while that it was a lost cause.I felt a bit sad but consoled my self that this area had many families with kids.Surely someone would find her and give her a good home,I told myself. 1。

A real doctor Agony is a remote mountain village which is far from town and far from civilization. The villagers own their own farms and open their own factories. Life here is generally quiet and peaceful. But life also means a lot of inconveniences in this part of the world. example, if someone is ill, it is difficult to get a doctor nearby. Some young people have been sent to study medicine in town, only once they are out of the village, few of them are willing to return to work here. Old Joe and his wife live in a cottage at the end of their farm. They have a large flock of sheep and quite a few horses. The couple take their animals as their family members and spend most of their time looking after them. One night, Old Joe was woken up by a piercing1) cry. He immediately realized that his sheep were being attacked by a pack of wolves. He jumped out of bed, took his gun and rushed out. In the dark, he saw a figure moving towards the sheep pen. He raised his gun and shot at it;the figure fell with a painful groan). But somehow the voice sounded like his wife’s. He hurried to the figure, only to find his wife lying bleeding on the ground. She was seriously wounded. Seeing what had happened, Old Joe couldn’t believe his eyes. He tore a piece of his shirt and wrapped up the wound his wife with his shaking hands. He then gently carried her into the room and put her on the bed. He rushed out again and jumped onto a horse. He rode fiercely 3)down to the village where he hoped he could find help. A moment later he returned with a young man who was the son of a friend and how was a medical student on holiday. Encouraged by Old Joe, the young man examined the wound and decided that surgery should be done immediately to get the bullet out. But when he saw the blood issuing) from the wound, the young man’s hands began to shake violently and it was difficult him to calm down. An immediate operation seemed impossible and Old Joe’s wife was in danger. At this moment, they heard the sound of heavy and hurried foot steps outside and then in burst a middle-aged man dressed like a traveller. The new comer had a quick glance at the wounded and then said “I can do it.” He took the instruments5) from the young man and made a sign to them to leave the room a while. Half an hour later, the middle-aged man came out and told Old Joe that the bullet had been taken out and everything would be all right. Old Joe was so grateful that he kept saying “You’re a real doctor. You’ve saved my wife. You’re a real doctor.” “No, I‘m a vet, only an animal doctor. ”The man smiled. “I’ve been making a survey my on animal raising environment in mountainous areas. It happened that I had just arrived at the village when you went to fetch this young man and I followed you here just in case you needed help. ” 88。

I work at a company where there are about a gazillion employees. I can’t say that I know them all by name, but I know my fair share of them. I think that almost all of them know me. I’d say that’s the reason I’ve been able to go wherever it is I’ve made it to in this world. It’s all based on one simple principle I believe every single person deserves to be acknowledged, however small or simple the greeting.When I was about years old, I was walking down the street with my mother. She stopped to speak to Mr. Lee. I was busy trying to bulls-eye the “O” in the stop sign with a rock. I knew I could see Mr. Lee any old time around the neighborhood, so I didn’t pay any attention to him. After we passed Mr. Lee my mother stopped me and said something that has stuck with me from that day until now. She said, “You let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and not open up your mouth to speak, because even a dog can wag its tail when it passes you on the street.” That phrase sounds simple but it’s been a guidepost me and the foundation of who I am.When you write an essay like this, you look in the mirror and see who you are and what makes up your character. I realized mine was cemented that day when I was years old. Even then, I started to see that when I spoke to someone, they spoke back. And that felt good.It’s not just something I believe in; it’s become a way of life. I believe that every person deserves to feel someone acknowledge their presence, no matter how humble they may be or even how important.At work, I always used to say hello to the founder of the company and ask him how our business was doing. But I was also speaking to the people in the cafe and the people that cleaned the buildings, and asked how their children were doing. I remembered after a few years of passing by the founder, I had the courage to ask him a meeting. We had a great talk. At a certain point I asked him how far he thought I could in go in his company. He said, “If you want to, you can get all the way to this seat.”I’ve become vice president but that hasn’t changed the way I approach people. I still follow my mother’s advice. I speak to everyone I see, no matter where I am. I’ve learned that speaking to people creates a pathway into their world, and it lets them come into mine, too. 5。

女人香美丽英文之人生幸福篇 9。

无论你身在何处,也无论你是何人,此时此刻,有一件事于你我而言都是相同的,而且只要我们活着,这个共同点就存在那就是,我们并非停留不前,而是人在旅途 We Are on a Journey By Henry Van DykeWherever you are, and whoever you may be, there is one thing in which you and I are just alike,at this moment, and in all the moments of our existence.We are not at rest; we are on a journey. Our life is not a mere fact; it is a movement, a tendency, a steady, ceaseless progress towards an unseen goal.We are gaining something, or losing something, every day. Even when our position and our character seem to remain precisely the same, they are changing. the mere advance of time is a change. It is not the same thing to have a bare field in January and in July. The season makes the difference. The limitations that are childlike in the child are childish in the man.Everything that we do is a step in one direction or another. Even the failure to do something is in itself a deed. It sets us ward or backward. The action of the negative pole of a magnetic needle is just as real as the action of the positive pole. To decline is to accept — the other alternative.Are you nearer to your port today than you were yesterday? Yes, — you must be a little nearer to some port or other; since your ship was first launched upon the sea of life you have never been still a single moment; the sea is too deep, you could not find an anchorage if you would; there can be no pause until you come into port. 8378。
