 My Aunt Edith was a widow of 50, working as a secretary, when doctors discovered what was then thought to be a very serious heart illness.

Aunt Edith doesn’t accept defeat easily. She began studying medical reports in the library and found an article in a magazine about a well-known heart doctor, Dr. Michael DeBakey, in Houston, Texas. He had saved the life of someone with the same illness. The article said Dr. DeBakey’s fees were very high; Aunt Edith couldn’t possibly pay them. But could he tell her of someone whose fees she could pay?

So Aunt Edith wrote to him. She simply listed her reasons for wanting to live: her three children, who would be on their own in three or four more years and among them a little girl who always dreamed of traveling and seeing the world. There wasn’t a word of self-pity—only warmth and humor and the joy of living. She mailed the letter, not really expecting an answer.

A few days later, my doorbell rang. Aunt Edith didn’t wait to come in; she stood in the hall and read aloud:

Your beautiful letter moved me very deeply. If you can come to Houston, there will be no charge for either the hospital or the operation.

But it was quite dark and he went round the school building to another door. That one was locked too. He couldn’t climb up the wall very easily. Then he saw another open window on the ground floor. It was the window of the headmaster’s study. He looked into the room – no one was there. Bob quickly climbed on to the window sill (窗台. and jumped into the room. Just then he heard a noise. Then someone turned on the light in the corridor(走廊). Bob looked around and then hid under the sofa. One minute later, Mr. Mannering, the headmaster, came in. He turned on the light on the desk, and sat down on the sofa. Then he opened a book and began to read.

Finally, the headmaster closed his book and stood up. He put the book on a shelf and walked towards the door.

What is your favorite color? Do your like yellow, orange, red? If you do, you must be an optimist (乐观主义者., a leader, an active person who enjoys life, people and excitement. Do you prefer grays and blues? Then you are probably quiet, shy, and you would rather follow than lead. You tend to be a pessimist (悲观主义者.. At least, this is what psychologists tell us, and they should know, because they have been seriously studying the meaning of color preference (偏好., as well as the effect that color have on human beings. They tell us, among other facts, that we do not choose our favorite color as we grow up—we are born with our preference. If you happen to love brown, you did so, as soon as you opened your eyes, or at least as soon as you could see clearly.

Colors do influence our moods—there is no doubt about it. A yellow room makes most people feel more cheerful and relaxed than a dark green one; and a red dress brings warmth and cheer to the saddest winter day. On the other hand, black is depressing. A black bridge over the Thames River, near London, used to be the scene of more suicides than any other bridge in the area—until it was repainted green. The number of suicide attempts immediately fell sharply; perhaps it would have fallen even more if the bridge had been done in pink or baby blue.

Light and bright colors make people not only happier but more active. It is an established fact that factory workers work better, harder, and have fewer accidents when their machines are painted orange rather than black or gray.

A. besides other facts                             B. in regard to other facts

C. not considering other facts                 D. according to other facts

4. Which of the following is true?

A. People’s preference of one color to another is not trained.

B. People’s preference of one color to another is learned as they grow up.

C. Some people love brown because they saw something brown when they were born.
