One day, I heard an American boy say to aChinese girl student, “You speak very good English.” But the girl answered, “No,no. My English is very poor.” The foreigner was quite 16 atthe answer. Thinking he had not made 17 understoodor the girl had not 18 himclearly, he said, “Yes, indeed, you speak very well.” 19 thegirl still kept saying, “No.” In the end the American boy could not understandand didn’t know 20 to say.
What’s wrong with the girl’s answer? Shedidn’t 21 a compliment in the same way asthe American people do. She should answer, “Thank you” instead of “No”. She 22 understood what the American boy had said, butshe thought she should be modest. In the 23 ,people will feel proud and 24 when they are praised. So if someone saysthe 25 you have cooked are very delicious, you shouldsay, “Thank you.”
In our country we think being modest is avirtue (美德) and being proud is a bad thing, but in myopinion, being confident does not 26 being proud, so sometimes you should beconfident 27 being modest.
28 you are modestand say, “No, I’m afraid I can’t do it well”, while working in a westerncountry, the others may think that you really can’t do it. If you often say“No”, you will certainly be looked down upon by 29 .When asking for a job, if one says something like “Yes, I can certainly do it”instead of “Let me have a try”, he or she will 30 get it . So in the west, youshould be brave to show your self-confidence.

Last month, a dear friend of mine lost hermother suddenly in an accident. The tragedy was a shock to everyone.
We sometimes take our loved ones forgranted, and we always expect that they will be with us forever. However, lifedoes not work that way and sometimes we get a wake up call that makes us standback and realize how short life it is.
I tried to comfort her, but what words canI say to help her?
Sometimes words just can’t express ourfeelings. Sometimes our actions are much more meaningful than words. Sometimes,just being there to listen is more meaningful and helpful to people.
As I was leaving the funeral(葬礼) parlor, I ran into Mary, who has been a true friendto me over the years. We chatted for a few moments and then she asked me how myjob was. I started saying I was having a stressful week with my job and mylife, and how I was feeling. She listened to me as I was talking about myfrustrations, then without saying a word, she took her hands and placed them onmy face, and said to me,“But at least you had a day.”
Thetouch of her hands on my cheeks, the calmness in her voice, and the words shespoke hit me like a ton of bricks. All the frustrations, all the stress that was buildingup inside of me came to a complete stop.
Since that day, when I start feeling stressed,I remind myself of Mary’s words—but at least I had a day! Things could be a lotworse, the stress of the situation always could be worse, but I am alive and Ihave a lot to be thankful for—so I shall not waste my days with stress andfrustrations — life is too short!

I had been swimming for competitions forabout five years. But I was ready to give up, because I felt I was horrible at it.I was often the only Chinese American at a swim competition. Worst of allthough, at each competition I kept receiving “Honorable Mentions” which simplymeans, “Thank you for coming and showing up. You didn’t even rank first, secondor third, but we don’t want you to go home with nothing.”
The very day before a big swim meeting, Idecided to break the news to my grandma that I was dropping out of the swimteam. You have to know my grandma — she was a small woman but could run all theoperation of her house without ever leaving her sofa or raising her voice. As Isat next to my grandma, I laid my head on her tiny little lap so that she couldrub it.
When I told her of my wish to quitswimming, she suddenly pushed my head off her lap, sat me straight up facingher and said, “Baby, remember these words! A quitter never wins and a winnernever quits. Your grandmother doesn’t raise losers or quitters. You go to thatswim meeting tomorrow, and you swim like you are a grandchild of mine, youhear?”
I was too afraid to say anything but “Yes,ma’am.”
The next day I arrived at the swim meeting,and as I got on the board, I noticed the other girls with their skintight caps,goggles and speedo suits were there to do one thing — beat me. Suddenly, mygrandma’s words rang in my head, “Quitters never win and winners never quit.”
The competition began and I was swimmingharder that before. As I drew my right arm back. I noticed I was tied with oneperson. I thought we were fighting for the eighth place (the last place) and Irefused to finish dead last. So I added more kickes on the last two hundredyards.
I hit the wall and looked to the left andto the right for the swimmers who had beaten me. But no one was there. Thatday, at age fifteen, I broke the national 400-freestyle record.
Back at Grandma’s, I laid my head on thelap and told her about our great race.
