练习一 Your English teacher shows the picture below and asks the class to discuss it. Your classmates have different understandings. Look at the picture carefully and tell the class how YOU understand it.
Main objects: Two men, a potted flower… State of each object: ? Two men are staring at a potted flower.
? One is smiling, imagining the blossom of the flower. ? The other views in an opposite way by showing a depressed look.
What does each object represent? ? The smiling man: those optimistic people
? The sad man: those pessimistic people
? The potted flower: What people may meet or face in life.
Different people may hold different attitude toward life.
As we can see the in the picture, two men are staring at a potted flower with apparently/ obviously different expressions on their faces. One person is smiling, imagining the flower blooming./ the flower in full blossom while the other is depressed, thinking about the sad ending of the flower/ the flower is doomed to wither in the future.
In my opinion, the picture is trying to tell us that different people may have different attitudes towards life. Faced with the same situation in our daily life, pessimistic people may feel helpless and complain about it all day long. Optimistic people, however, may look at it positively and take it as a chance to show his abilities and talents.
Therefore, it is our attitude that matters in our life.

They are looking at it from different directions/angles. So whe
n your friend’s ideas differ from yours, don’t be surprised or get angry. At the same time, we should try to consider a thing from as many aspects as possible.
不同态度导致不同结果 To some people, challenges means changes and discomfort,. However, to other people, challenges are opportunities for them to grow stronger. Different attitudes towards challenges lead to different results. If we always avoid changes, we may lose good chance to improve ourselves.
