Directions:
Study the following cartoon carefully and write an essay in which you should
1) describe the cartoon,?
2) interpret its meaning, and?
3) point out its implications in our life.?

In the black and white drawing above, a youth gravely contemplates a narrow winding path heading into a forest. Perhaps he thinks that his own future may be much like this path; full of bends and curves, thorns and traps. The road to success is never anything but uneven and difficult. ?
  In fact, one could even say that the more successful one\'s life is, the more problems and hardships one must have overcome. The ability to work through difficult situations and unfortunate events only makes one stronger and more capable. Given that the road to happiness always contains obstacles and setbacks, we should be well prepared for the hardships that life inevitably brings, and abandon the idea that life is smooth or easy. We must accept the fact that failures are unavoidable, whether they are failures in examinations, in finding a job, or carrying out a task. People who accept that their life will not always be simple or calm are better able to handle problems when they arise. Those who are upset by each and every small setback — and there are many people with such attitudes— do not have much potential. Failure is mother to success as it can strengthen one\'s will. Those who can draw lessons from failure are destined for success.

在上面黑白的图画中,一个年轻人严肃地凝望着前方蜿蜒曲折通向森林的小路。也许他想到了自己的未来就像这条小路一样,充满曲折、荆棘和陷阱。通向成功之路从来都是艰辛和不平坦的。? 事实上,甚至可以说一个人的人生越成功,那他必须战胜的艰难和困苦就会越多。在困境和不幸中奋进的能力,只会让一个人更坚强,更有才干。既然通向幸福的道路总是会有障碍和挫折的话,那么我们就应该为生命中无法避免的艰难做好充分准备,而放弃认为生命意味着平稳和安逸的想法。我们必须接受这个事实——失败是不可避免的,而无论它是考试失利、求职受挫还是工作失败。人们如果承认他们的生活并不总是单纯和平静的,他们就会在问题出现的时候处理得更好,而那些出现一点挫折就心烦意乱的人——很多人持有这样的生活态度——没有太大的潜力。失败是成功之母在于它能增强一个人的意志。那些能从失败中吸取教训的人是注定会成功的。

It is everyone\'s wish to have things go their way. Yet the journey throughlife is not always the case and we should be prepared for the twists and turns it offers us. This is certainly the case as shown in the cartoon. ?
  Twists and turns are a part of life and setbacks often happen. For many reasons, we often have to encounter failure in a complex society. No one can avoid or escape these unexpected changes in our daily lives; however, failure may be aroute toward success. This causes us to reflect about what happened and as a result we build up and accumulate experience. We are then more likely to come up with a possible solution, and so twists and turns can turn into treasures. Edison,for instance, the inventor of the electric light bulb, made hundreds of models that failed before he came up with the right one. In general it is failure that encourages us to work harder which eventually leads to success. ?
Twists and turns in life are unavoidable and are not always bad. We should have a more optimistic view on life and try to make the most of it and draw lessons from the bumps and turns ?along? the way.

译文:??
  每个人都希望生活一帆风顺。但是,人生旅途并非永远如此,正像画中所描绘那样,我们应该对生活中的曲折和坎坷做好准备。这正是这幅图画所描述的。?挫折与坎坷也是生活中的一部分,逆境时有发生。出于许多原因,在复杂的社会中我们经常要面对失败。没有人能够避免和逃脱日常生活不期而遇的变故。然而,失败往往是通向成功之路。因为失败会引发我们更多的思考,我们也会因此而积累更多的经验。之后,我们就会更容易地找到解决问题的方法。因此,挫折与坎坷也是人生的财富。例如,电灯的发明者爱迪生在他成功之前曾经经历过成百上千次的失败。总的来说,正是失败才使我们加倍努力工作,最后取得成功。?
人生中的挫折与坎坷是不可避免的,但它们并非总是坏事。我们应该用更加乐观的态度对待生活,并充分加以利用,从挫折中吸取教训。
