I lifted the pencil. It was time to copy down notes.
“No,” the pencil begged, “don’t dig your finger-nails (手指甲) into my wood. It hurts!”
“I’m sorry, pencil. I’ll try to be gentle. I promise. So just relax,” I said.
“How can I relax with you pressing me in my side?” The pencil moved from side to side in my fingertips.
“Please, just relax!” I struggled to take it with both hands, but just couldn’t. Oh, what a fuss we were making! The whole class was glancing (瞥一眼) over their shoulders to watch me.
“Shh, pencil!” I struggled with it as it tried hard to slip out of my finger. But I wouldn’t let go. “Just…just stop it!”
“I’ll never stay!” The pencil wailed (号哭) so loudly that every student turned their heads.
My cheeks burned bright red. “Um… sorry. I was j-just trying t-to t-to…” What could I say? My pencil was escaping my hands. I would never say that!
“Please, I just want to get out of this place! If you want, get another pencil. Just leave me alone!” the pencil said.
I would do anything to get rid of it. I let the pencil drop hard onto the desk.
“I’m free!” It screamed. Then it dropped onto the floor and rolled out of the classroom. I frowned at the door as I watched my pencil escape. Then I looked up.
“Uh-oh.” My face grew white. The whole class was looking at me with their eyes as big as saucers. And then I saw her—Mrs. Peppel!
She glared at me.
I tried to smile and said, “I’m sorry.”
Mrs. Peppel, without changing her expression, put the chalk down and went out of the room. After a minute or so, Mrs. Peppel returned, holding my pencil in her hand. She put the pencil on my desk and then asked me with a twinkle in her eyes, “We’re not going to have any more trouble, are we?”
“No, ma’am,” the pencil and I said shyly.

Nick Vujicic was born without arms and legs. He overcame (克服) his disability and now he is a speaker. He speaks to millions of people, both in person and through his books. His latest book, Life Without Limits, has a powerful message of building a life of success and happiness.
Vujicic always has a smile on his face. But when he was a kid, he struggled with self-esteem (自尊心) problems. He wondered why he was different from other kids. His family and friends encouraged him and helped him overcome his problems.
“If it wasn’t for my family and friends, I would not have been here,” Vujicic said. “They were the ones who believed in me and loved me.”
Even so, Vujicic still had to deal with depression (抑郁) and loneliness. People laughed at him for being different.
Vujicic knows the harm bullying (恃强欺弱) can do. Bullying was the main reason why Vujicic tried to kill himself when he was ten by drowning himself in a river.
“A lot of people don’t understand that bullying is a major problem,” Vujicic said. “Many bullies hurt others,” he said, “because they have low self-esteem and are insecure. Like the people they bully, they don’t know who they’re supposed to be, either. The only thing that makes them feel like they have self-esteem is pushing other people around.”
“It’s very cowardly to make fun of others,” continued Vujicic. “It’s scary. It’s hard to stop.”
But it’s not impossible.
Facing bullying can be a difficult and scary thing. But Vujicic said that taking life one day at a time is the best path forward. It’s going to get better.
He won his battles by coming back to the truth of who he is. “I know that my value is not determined by what I look, what I can’t do, or how many friends I have,” he said. “I’m Nick Vujicic and there’s not another Nick Vujicic out there.”

Bob Holmes’s volleyball career began when he visited his doctor because of back pain. His doctor told him that he needed to exercise more, so Bob took up volleyball. He hadn’t played the sport in high school or college but took an immediate liking to the game.
Several years ago, Bob was considered as the athlete who has played the most games in any sport. He’s played some 17,000 games of volley-ball in over 5,500 gymnasiums. And he’s a one-man team.
In match-ups against athletes from other sports, he’s beaten 6-man teams. As if playing against 6 players isn’t hard enough, he’ll sometimes take on 100 people at a time, and beat them.
“My most memorable game was against the Baltimore Orioles,” said Holmes. “A lot of their players play a lot of volleyball, and so they were really good. We were tied 24 – 24 in the final game before I won by 2 points.”
Encouraged by his job to rescue lives by trying to put an end to suicide (自杀), Bob began putting on one-man vs. entire team volleyball exhibitions as a way of generating interest for his message. A typical exhibition for him is at a high school assembly where he’ll play 3 games: one against a team of students, one against teachers and one against a combined teacher/student team. The games take about 45 minutes to an hour to play and in his remaining time, Bob spreads his message about the importance of standing up for yourself and making good decisions.
Recalling a letter he received from a boy who felt depressed about himself but changed his mind after hearing his words, Holmes knows that the volleyball games are just the attention getter (广告妙语) for a more important message. Holmes said, “I just wanted to rescue lives and that is what encouraged me to play so many games.”
46. The first paragraph tells us that ______.
A. Bob didn’t get much exercise before
B. Bob was interested in playing volleyball
C. Bob felt back pain after playing volleyball
D. Bob took his doctor’s advice to play volleyball
47. It can be inferred from the second paragraph that ______.
A. Bob had a strong interest in any ball game
B. Bob played against others in volleyball games alone
C. Bob played with about 17,000 volleyballs himself
D. Bob couldn’t find another player to organize a team
48. By playing 3 games at a school, Bob wanted to ______.
A. show his skills at playing volleyball
B. prove he was the best volleyball player
C. encourage kids to depend on themselves
D. teach students how to make good friends
49. To Bob, playing volleyball games is a way to ______.
A. make a living for himself
B. make good decisions
C. attract others’ attention
D. save the lives of young people
50. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. One man volleyball team beats entire ones
B. One man turns to volleyball for survival
C. One volleyball team has only a player
D. One man plays volleyball in 5,500 gyms
Do you want to get someone to trust you or trust you again? If yes, firstly, you must be sincere from the start. For this, don’t hold anything back that he or she should know，because this will affect your relationship. Act the same way alone as you do when in the presence of others. Do things out of the goodness (好意) of your heart and do not seek a reward or do things to acquire things from people. Don’t do it or say it, unless you believe it from your heart.
Secondly, you can tell a third party something nice about the person. When we praise or say something nice to someone, the person may feel we have a hidden purpose. So you can tell his or her friend or relative something great about him or her. When you don’t say it directly to your target person, and he or she gets to know your praise from someone else, it greatly increases your trustworthiness (可靠) in their eyes.
Thirdly, don’t overpromise (承诺过多). If you have already broken somebody’s trust, then you need to earn it back by keeping your word. Stop promising too many things just because you are eager to get someone to trust you again. Breaking another promise will only make things worse. So be honest and tell the other person exactly what is going on in your life and learn to say no sometimes.
Trust is not something you can get in a hurry. If you want to get someone to trust you or trust you again, you need to give that person time and space. Therefore, don’t be in their face all the time and don’t ask that person directly whether he or she trusts you or not. Let things fall into place in their own time. Being trusted can be easily achieved at first, but a person still needs time to process everything.
Now that you know how to get someone to trust you, I hope that you will put it to good use. Once trust has been gained, you must not do anything to damage it. Once you do, however, you will have to work twice as hard to earn it back again.

One possible version:
It is generally thought that disabled people are those who need care and help from our society. But it is not always true, and some are exceptions to the rule. Though they are physically disabled, they are self-reliant and even do their best to help others. Wang Hanlu is a good example. He was born in 1962, Yancheng, Jiangsu Province. An illness left his right leg lame at the age of three, but he never lost his hope for life.
Wang Hanlu helped many people in his life. In 1992, he began to support three orphans to finish their education. In 2006, he applied for donating his organs to Nanjing Red Cross upon his death. Shortly after the earthquake in Wenchuan happened in 2008, he went there alone and acted as a volunteer
It’s a pity that Wang Hanlu lost his life in a car accident in 2011. His life was short, but he really made a difference to our society. All of us should look up to him as a moral model.
