9、A friend of mine met with an accident driving in darkness.His legs were so hurt that he couldn’t move.What was the __36__ was that he found himself unable to ask for help---his mobile phone went out of __37__ as a result of exhausted battery.Nothing could be done but to _38__ in cold wilderness.It was eight hours later that day broke,and then _39_ of the rescue.
It is almost __40__ that he could stand the horror in the darkness for so long.Even more surprising was his __41__:“First of all,I checked up my __42__,checked up my conditions and found myself not in mortal danger.As there was no __43__ to call for help,I leaned back in my seat trying my best to keep the wound from __44__.In this way I dozed off.”
His story put an end to my regret for the __45__ of an exploration adventure that happened last year.A group of young men __46___ to explore a mountain cave and got lost.__47__to find a way out in the dark cave they were frightened and ran anxiously without a sense of __48__.Finally they feel dead in fear and exhaustion.According to the __49__ people that found them,the place where they got lost was only about 10 meters away from the __50__ of the cave.If they stayed on the spot when they lost their way and tried to __51__ themselves,they would probably sense a faint light glimmering not far away.
Don’t you think you can compare it with __52__ itself?When you meet with difficulty in life and work,you are lost in darkness.__53__ you it’s unclear yet and you needn’t put up struggle __54__.It seems to be a negative（消极）attitude,__55__ a person who can afford to do so must have foresight(远见)as well as a great courage in the first place.
