There were two high mountains in front of an old mans house. The old man, who was 66 Yu Gong,was nearly 90 years old. With the two high mountains just in front of 67 house, he and his family had to walk a long way 68 the mountain whenever they had something to do on the other side. One day, Yu Gong told his 69 they must move the two mountains somewhere else. The next day, a man named Zhi Sou saw them 70 and tried to stop them, saying, "You are silly You are so old and weak 71 you can't even take away the grass and trees. What makes you think you can move the 72 There is no way you will succeed.”
“It is silly of you to say so! "Yu Gong 73 ,"Look, my sons can continue my work after my death.When my sons die, my grandchildren 74 continue. However, the mountains can't grow any 75 . Do you still think I can't move them?'"
Later, moved by Yu Gong, the God of the Heavens ordered another god to take the two big mountains away.

An Outlook on My Future
Everyone wants to know their future, but nobody knows it.
Once there lived a postman in a small village. The man, who started his job at the age of 20, delivered(递送)all kinds of 36 to the villagers' houses. He had to spend about two hours covering the long distance of about 50 kilometers. Twenty years flew by, so many changes 37 ,but the road from the post office to the village always hadn't had any trees or flowers 38 the flying dust.
“How long shall I go along this deserted road?”
As soon as he thought he had to spend his life 39 the bike on the dusty road with no flower or trees, he felt somewhat sorry.
One day 40 he finished delivering the letters and was ready to return worriedly, he happened to pass by a flower shop. "Right, that's it! "He walked into the shop, bought a handful of flower seeds,and 41 the next day, he scattered(播撒) different kinds of seeds along the roadside.Thus, after one day, two days, three days ... he 42 kept scattering the flower seeds.
Before long, on both sides of the 43 road ，along which he had come and gone for 20 years，a lot of little flowers bloomed(花开), in full bloom in four 44 .
For the villagers, the seeds and the sweet smell were more 45 than any mail the postman delivered in all his life.
On the road without dust but full of flowers, the postman whistled and rode his bike, feeling happy all the way.

Last year, around Labor Day, I read a "Happy Ad" in our local newspaper. There was a lady in a local nursing home, who was celebrating her 90th birthday and her family wanted everyone to know about it. It said that if you wanted to drop her a line(写信给她), here was her address. So I did.I found a birthday card and dropped her a short note, wishing her a happy birthday.
A week later, someone knocked at my front door. I opened the door and found a middle-aged man standing on my doorstep(门阶). He introduced himself as the son of this woman to whom I had sent the card. He explained that he just wanted to drop by in person and thank me for sending such a nice card. Apparently(显然)，like many older folks,she did not receive much mail and was quite excited to receive mine. I just didn't know what to say. I told him it was my pleasure and that I hoped his mom had enjoyed her birthday.
That year, I did not send out any Christmas cards, except to this lovely old lady in the nursing home. I just told her that I was thinking about her and hoped that she had a nice holiday. I sent her a holiday card and also a couple of notes in between. I just thought she might like to have someone write to get some mail.
A year later, I received a letter from her son, saying that his mom passed away a couple of weeks ago. He told me that my few little notes were enough to brighten a couple of her days here on the earth. Even though I never met this lady, but i did keep her and her family in my thoughts.
