First of all, books represent the collective wisdom from different generations and cultures. Books cover a vast amount of knowledge that has been accumulated through the long history of human-beings. Experience, however, only exists in small fragment that one has accumulated during his own life. Besides, by reading books, one can acquire maximum knowledge in minimum time. For example, text books are the collection of experience that is summarized and categorized into concrete words in a systematic layout. They can not only teach people how to avoid mistakes and dangers, but also instruct them how to achieve success in their various endeavors. 47 Is there a good reason to be impolite(rude) to another person? 考答案 : It is inappropriate to be rude to another person.
70 Although rudeness can be a result of bad mood and not all those who act rudely mean to be impolite, rudeness often causes irreparable harms. When we let our emotions take control and act without manner, we will not only allow our bad feelings to deteriorate, but also hurt other people’s feelings. Moreover, a rude attitude may intensify conflicts and even cause tragedies. In a dispute, a single act of rudeness can trigger bitter feelings in others and result in a vicious circle. This may even lead to crime and turbulence in society. On the contrary, a simple act of kindness eases tension and helps resolve conflicts. 48 How to deal with homesickness 考答案: First, I will Skype my parents to see if they are fine.

They could introduce activities to me, encouraging me to try something brand-new. Secondly, friends with different thoughts and talents can give us motivation and help us form a broader perspective of the world. Some of my friends travel to a lot of states to help people in poverty though they are not social workers. They have reminded me of my responsibility to the community as well. Being with friends who share different ideas is an experience of constantly learning and improving.
