第一节 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中，选出最佳选项， 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分） 。 A Think of life as a game in which you are playing with five balls in the air. You name them work, family, health, friends and spirit and you keep all of them in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce (弹跳) back. But the other four balls, family, health, friends and spirit, are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be broken. They will never be the same. You must understand that and try to have balance in your life. How? Don’t look down on your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different and each of us is special. Don’t let other people set goal for you. Only you know what is be st for yourself. Don’t give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. Don’t be afraid of difficulties. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s impossible. The quickest way to receive love is to give it; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly (紧紧地); the best way to keep love is to give it wings（翅膀). Don’t run through life so fast that you forget not only where you’ve been, but also where you are going. Don’t be afraid to learn. Knowledge is a treasure you can always carry easily. Don’t use time or words carelessly. You can’t get them back. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift; that’s why we call it “the present” . Life is not a competition, but a trip, step by step. 61. The passage tells us not to _________ because everyone is special. A. be afraid of difficulties B. be afraid to learn C. run through life so fast D. compare yourself with others to look down on your worth 62.

You should learn to give up D. Although you try, nothing will change. 63.Why can’t we use time carelessly? A. Because time is too expensive. B. Because time never returns. C. Because we are too poor. D. Because times will get back. 64. If you run through life too fast, you may ____________. A. lose your own treasure that you can always carry easily B. lose love by holding it too tightly C. forget where you’ve been and where you are going. D. not be afraid of the difficulties 65.
