  An old story tells of an unhappy and discontented stonecutter. One day he came upon a 1and was awe-struck(充满敬畏的) by all of the marvelous goods the man had for sale. “I wish I were a merchant,” said the stonecutter and, quite 2 , his wish was granted.
  Not long 3he saw a parade pass his little shop. Spying a prince dressed in splendor such as he had 4seen before, he said, “I wish I were a prince.” And he became one.
  But it wasn’t too many days later that he
  5outside and felt the 6of the hot summer sun beating down upon his head. “Even a prince cannot stay 7in the sun,” he said. “I wish I were the sun.” This wish, too, was granted.
  He was 8being the sun until, one day, a cloud came 9him and the earth. “That cloud overshadows me,” he said. “I wish I were a cloud.”
  Again, his wish was granted and he was happy until he came to a10that he could not11above. “This mountain is greater than I,” he said. “I wish I were a mountain.”
  As a tall and mighty mountain he12 upon the affairs of humans and felt that he was13happy. But one day a14climbed up his side and chipped away at rock and there was15he could do about it. “That little man is more16than I,” the mountain said. “I wish I were a stonecutter.”
  So the circle was17and now the stonecutter knew that he would always be happy just18himself. He would never
   19like a prince, shine like the sun nor rise as tall as a mountain, but he was happy to be who he was.
  A sure way to20is to compare yourself to others. Like someone aptly said, “The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence, but it still has to be mowed(割).” You are who you are and that is to be celebrated.

  答案解析:
  有一个古老的故事是关于一个感觉不快乐和不满足的人。这个采石工人见到一个商人想成为商人;见到一个王子想成为王子;见到太阳想成为太阳;见到云又想成为云;云过不了高山,又想成为高山;见到了采石工人,还是觉得做个采石工人好。故 1. B。下文提示,他看到了商人有很多好东西,因羡慕而想成为商人。
  2. A。不经意实现了这个想法,很意外,但却令他高兴,用amazingly; gladly仅表示高兴,没有意外之喜的意思。其他选项明显不符合。
  3. C。 按故事发展的情况来看,是接着的事,表示之后不久,用afterward; later一般用于一段时间后,不与long连用。
  4. A。从spying可以看出,他以前没见过,所以用never。
  5. A。王子走路应该是很有风度的,不会轻易地慌张,所以用run, rush, jump不适合他的身份。
  6. C。夏天太阳毒,晒得他不舒服(discomfort)。
  7. D。“连王子也没法在夏天让自己凉爽(cool)”,所以他想成为太阳。根据句子意义及生活常识判断。
  8. B。做了太阳他自然很高兴(happy),下文提到了转折的时机(until ...)。
  9. D。云遮住了太阳,挡在太阳和地球之间(between)。
   10. A。下文提示,云遇到了高山(mountain) 过不去。
  11. B。 云升(rise)不上山顶去,float只表示漂浮;go是个一般的词,不如rise有动态的美。
   12. C。山高大,从山顶往下看(look down)看到芸芸众生的生活百态。
  13. D。终于(finally)感觉到这是最大的快乐了。他觉得成为高山是他最后的目标了。
  14. D。下文联系,他遇到了采石者(stonecutter)。
  15. C。眼睁睁看着他把石头采去,却什么也做不了(there was nothing he could do about it.)。
  16. A。这个stonecutter比他更强大(powerful),把山上的石头采去了。
  17. B。这是个轮回,到这里完成了(completed)。
  18. C。到这时他明白了:做回自己(being oneself)才是最快乐的。
  19. C。他是看到了王子的华丽衣着(dress)才动心要做个王子的。
  20. D。与compare yourself to others联系,这样是导致自己不快乐(unhappiness)的原因。
事告诉我们,还是做回自己最快乐。
