The Colors of Friendship
Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel. Green said, “Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would 21 .”
Blue interrupted, “You only think about the 22 , but consider the sky and the sea.
23 the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. Without my peace, you would all be 24 .”
Yellow chuckled (笑道), “You are all so serious. I bring laughter, fun, and 25 into the world.”
Orange started next to blow her trumpet, “I am the color of health and strength. I may be 26 , but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. When I fill the sky 27 , my beauty is so striking that no one gives another 28 to any of you.”
Red could stand it 29 and he shouted out, “I am the ruler of all of you. I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to 30 truth. I am also the color of passion and of love.”
Then came Purple and Indigo (深蓝) …
The colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own 31 . Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening thunder. Rain started to pour down 32 . The colors crouched (蜷缩) down 33 , drawing close to one another for comfort.
In the midst of the clamor (叫嚷), rain began to speak, “You foolish colors, fighting 34 yourselves, each trying to dominate _35_. Don’t you know that you were each made for a special purpose, _36_? Join hands with _37_ and come to me.”
Doing as they were told, the colors _38_ and joined hands. They formed a colorful rainbow. From then on, whenever a good rain _39_ the world, a rainbow appears in the sky. They remember to _40_ one another.

A girl named Jenny once told me about her 16 in the world of Lose-Win during her eighth-grade year before she finally broke 17 :
My 18 with my mom all started one day 19 she said to me sarcastically (讽刺地) “Wow, you’re surely lively today.” I 20 it so literally (字面地) that then and there I decided to close off from her and never 21 back to her. So every time she would say something 22 I disagreed with her I would just say. “Okay, 23 you want, Mom.” But I really got cold quickly. And my 24 began to build. One night I talked to my mom about the school homework and she said, “Oh, that’s 25 ” and then went back to mop the floor.
“Don’t you ever 26 ?” I thought. But I didn’t say anything and stormed off. She had no idea I was 27 upset. She would have been willing to talk to me had I 28 her bow important it was to me.
At last I just blew up. “Mom, this has got to 29 . You tell me everything you want me to do and I just do it because it’s 30 than if fighting. Well, I’m sick of it.” This all came as a 31 to her.
After my blow up, we felt like we were 32 all over in our relationship. But it’s getting better all the lime. We discuss things now and I always 33 my feelings with her.

It’s round in the center with two silver bands that go around my wrist. And all of it is made of silver. This 19 tells me the importance of time in my life.
I received this 20 on a gray-sky day. I had to go to the airport at 9:00 am to 21 up my uncle Ali and take him to my father’s house 22 , I was late because I was 23 out with my friends.

I got to my father’s house at 2:00 pm on the same day and looking at my angry father’s face I felt 27 of myself at that moment. After I said hi to my 28 father and tired uncle, my father asked me to sit next to him where he handed me this watch as a gift from him. Then he said, “Essa, did you have 29 with your friends today?” I answered, “Yes, father, and I’m sorry about not picking up my uncle Ali.” He said, “What you 30 was not very nice and you should be sorry for your 31 .” I was ashamed and said, “Father, I’ll never do it again, I promise.” He said, “I hope today you learned something important, and this watch will be a 32 for you.” He told me to take this watch and use it as an organizer of my 33 .
I learned a very important lesson from my father: to 34 time and never be late to get someone. This watch is 35 to me, not because of its price, but because of the lesson that I learned from it.

Every time I passed boys who were playing basketball, I stopped to silently watch them. I really envied them. But as a girl, I once thought that I could 36 play basketball.
I like playing basketball though I'm not good at it. I've had a basketball 37 I was a child. At first, I could play freely because no one 38 when I was just a kid. But as I grew up it seemed harder and harder for me to enjoy basketball.
At school, it was always the boys who played basketball during PE classes. The girls were 39 allowed to play volleyball or badminton.
My parents did not 40 me play basketball at home. "Basketball is not fit for girls," they said. 41 I went to play basketball with my friends, boys 42 at me on the court as if I were an alien.
I was feeling 43 and had lost hope of playing basketball. 44 , something changed the first day of high school. I made some friends who also enjoyed playing basketball. They 45 me to get back on the court.
One of them told me with a smile, "Go your own 46 , let others talk." This girl would always play basketball with me. Even the boy who sat next to me in class talked about 47 with me almost every day.
I was inspired by them. Confidence and passion 48 to my heart. I am ready to stand up and play. I will play as well as I can, 49 for me, even the sky is boundless (无垠的).
Basketball has become an important part of my 50 . I am interested in it. I watch matches and enjoy playing almost every day. Through basketball, not only do I feel happy and confident, but also 51 a lot.
I've heard the NBA star Tracy McGrady say, "Nothing is impossible." It is from an advertisement on TV. I have 52 to realize that life is just like playing basket: ball. You should have an 53 . After that, just be confident and 54 going. Never give up and you'll make it sooner or later.
I love the motto of the NBA. It can 55 my strong feelings for basketball, "I love this game!"

39. A 与上文it was always the boys who played basketball形成对照，应填only，表示人们对男女生学校活动的性别刻板化印象。

42. D 甚至当“我”去和朋友们打篮球时，男孩们也盯着“我”看(不理解)，就好像“我”是个外星人似的。用stare at表示“盯着”。glare指“怒视”，不妥。glance指“瞥一眼”。根据语境，文中要表达的意息应是其他男孩不解地盯着自己。
43. B 学校不谁、家庭不让、男孩不理解使“我”打篮球的梦想根本无法实现，“我”感到心情沮丧。feel down引申为“感觉沮丧的”。
44. C 下文交待“我”新交的朋友鼓励“我”重新回到篮球场，这一转机在当时是无法预料的，故填Unexpectedly.
45. A 他们鼓励“我’回到篮球场。

47. A 本文话题是篮球与女生，因此该空应填basketball。
48. D 在朋友们的鼓励与引导下，自信、激情又回到“我”心中。

51. C 通过篮球，我不但感到幸福、自信，而且还学到很多东西。
52. A “我”逐渐意识到生活就像打篮球。
54. C 你首先应该有一个目标，然后应自信，并且不停地走下去。
55. B 这个格言能够表达“我”对篮球的强烈感情。

“We’ll get wet if we do,” Mom said.
“No, we won’t, Mom. That’s not what you said this morning,” the young girl said as she 27 her Mom’s arm.

21．D．外面下雨了，人们都在躲雨，等候雨停。下文母亲的话We’ll wait until…也给出了提示。从后半句看，一些人耐心，一些人有些恼怒，所以不能说大家都在抱怨。

25．A．slow down指雨下缓和一点，不能说stop a bit，停止不从程度表示。
28．C．从女儿的回答When you were talking…可知母亲是问小孩自己是什么时候说那话的。

One day, a poor boy who was trying to pay his way through school by selling goods from door to door found that he only had one dime left. He was hungry so he decided to 21 for a meal at the next house.
However, he lost his nerve（勇气） 22 a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked 23 so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I __24___ you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she 25 . “Mother has taught me never to accept pay for a _26 .” He said, “Then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger 27 , but it also increased his faith in God and human race. He was about to give up and quit before this point.
Years later the young woman became critically（紧急的） ill. The local doctors were baffled（感到困惑）. They finally sent her to the big city, where specialists can be called 28 to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly, now 29 , was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light 30 his eyes. Immediately, he 31 and went down through the hospital hall into her room.
32 in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He 33 her at once. He went back to the consultation room and 34 to do his best to save her life. From that day on, he gave 35__attention to her case.
After a long 36 the battle was won. Dr. Kelly 37 the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it and then wrote something on the side. The bill was sent to her room. She was afraid to open it because she was 38 that it would take the rest of her life to pay it off. Finally she looked, and the note on the side of the bill caught her 39 . She read these words…“Paid in full with a glass of milk.”
(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly

When I was a young child, my parents often told me that it was time to teach a man everything. I didn’t understand and wondered why 21 had such a big influence 22 a person. I thought I could grow up quickly to find it out as an adult. But now, 23 I come to knock at the door of adulthood, I feel 24 to express my own 25 on this saying. I know that I’m just a high school student with very 26 experiences. There are still many things 27 me in the future, yet I would like to express myself in a childish voice.
I once read this sentence, “To make this world a happy place to live in, you’d better 28 yourself and your heart, instead of the whole world.” I was shocked. It made me think about life 29 . There are so many things around us that 30 our will. We can’t force life 31 our wishes. The earth won’t stop turning no matter whether we 32 in or not. What we can do is just to make ourselves 33 the world. I think we should learn to accept 34 life gives us, no matter whether it’s the spring sunlight or the winter snowfall, and try to be happy.
Deeply moved by the pop song Grandmother(by Jay Chou), I always try to 35 every pleasant thing in my life, but now I see I can’t catch most of the pleasant moments. It is more 36 that they slip by and leave you feeling 37 . I realize that I’m not just living 38 myself and that there are others around me I should think of. They all pay attention to my growing up, even if it’s just a little progress.
Everyone has his or her own attitude towards life, positive or 39 . it doesn’t matter, I think. There is one 40 that should be obeyed and that’s to make this world better.

22．C. 固定短语。have a/an…influence on sb. / sth. “……对……有……影响/作用”。
24．A. 根据语境比较四个选项的意思，不难看出答案。anxious “渴望的”，be anxious to do …；worried “焦急的”；tired“疲倦的”；glad “兴奋的”。此处作者讲现在不到成年就急于表达自己的思想。本题易误选B、D。
26．C. 因experiences是可数名词，故首先排除B和D。作者是个高中生，不可能阅历丰富，而a few表肯定，且常和quite构成quite a few，故排除。本题易误选B。
27．A. 作者才是个高中生，人生的路还长，所以“将来还有许多事等着自己去做”。Stick with “忠心于”；deal with “处理，对待，涉及”；do with “处理”，均不符合题意。
28．B. 联系上下文，要使这个世界成为极乐的生活场所，你不可以能改变整个世界，只能改变自己、改变自己的内心，使自己适应社会。vary 指“不规则或连续地改变”，exchange和force均与文意不符。
30．D. 联系第28空意思和下文可以看出“我们最好改变自己……我们不可能强迫生活改变……”，说明“人生总有不如意之处”，也就是go against之意。
31．D．固定短语。force sb. to do sth. “强制某人作某事”。
35．B.由后文的“…but now I see I can’t catch…”推知。
36．B.此句是It is likely(adj.)that+从句。A、C是副词，D项是likely的反义词。本题易误选A.

He ___35____at the gingham dress and homespun suit, then exclaimed, "A building! Do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical buildings ____36___ here at Harvard." For a moment, the woman was___37____. The president was pleased. Maybe he could get rid of them now. The woman turned to her husband and said quietly, "Is that all it costs to start a university? Why don't we just start our own?" Her husband___38____.

When Nancy Lubin got ﹩5,000 from her great-grandfather, she never once considered taking a vacation or paying off student loans with it. 21 , the 24-year-old New York University law student began thinking about the clothing22 faced by the typical low-income woman: “If she goes for a job interview 23 dressed, she won’t get the job.” Lubin says. “But without a job, she can’t 24 good clothing.”

Donations are now 36 in, including jewellery 6,000 pairs of trousers and 40,000 worth of handbags. Broadcast journalists have given suits. And Lubin, who has put her 37 on hold is opening Dress for Success 38 in other cities.

Have you ever been in a meeting while someone was making a speech and realized suddenly that your 36 was a million miles away? You probably felt 37 and made up your mind to pay attention and never daydream again. Most of us, from earliest school 38 , have been told that daydreaming is a waste of time.
“ On the contrary, ” says L. Giambra, an expert in psychology, “ daydreaming is quite 39 . Without it, the mind couldn’t get done all the 40 it has to do during a normal day. You can’t possibly do all your thinking with a conscious mind. 41 , your unconscious mind is working out problems all the time. Daydreaming then may be one 42 in which the unconscious and conscious 43 of mind have silent dialogue.”
Early experts in psychology paid no attention to the importance of 44 or even considered them harmful. At one time daydreaming was thought to be a cause of some mental 45 . They did not have a better understanding of daydreams 46 the late 1980s. Eric Klinger, a professor of psychology, is the writer of the book Daydreaming. Klinger says, “ We 47 now that daydreaming is one of the main ways that we 48 our lives, learn from our experiences, and plan for our future. ” Daydreams are really a reflection（反映）on the things we 49 or the things we long for in life.
Daydreams are usually very simple and 50 , quite unlike sleep dreams, which may be 51 to understand. It’s easier to gain a 52 understanding of your life by paying close attention to your daydreams than by trying to examine your sleep dreams carefully. Daydreams help one 53 the difficult situations in life and find out a possible way for dealing with them.
Daydreams cannot be predicted（预知）. They move off in 54 directions, which may be creative and full of useful ideas. For many famous artists and scientists, daydreams were, and are a main source of creative energy.
So next time you catch 55 daydreaming, don’t stop. Just pay attention to your dreams. They may be more important than you think.
