One man said, “It is foolish of us to do such a thing. We can never fill the basket.”
The other man said, I’ll try it anyway.”
The first man said, “You may do as you like, but I’m not going to work at something foolish.”
He threw away his bucket(桶）and went away. The other man said nothing and kept on carrying water. Finally, the well was almost empty.
As he emptied the last bucket of water in the well, he saw a bright thing in it. He picked it up. It was a beautiful gold ring.

Books play an important role in our life. Gorky once said, “Books are the ladder of human progress.” Then which books is your favourite?
As a book lover, my favourite book is Robinson Crusoe. This book is written by Daniel Defoe, and it has already influenced many students like me. Every time I read it, I see a tall and strong Robinson. He is a brave man. I like him so much.
When Robinson was young, he dreamed of sailing on the sea day and night. Unluckily, after he grew up, he actually lived on an island for 28 years, where no people lived. During those years, he had to experience hunger and fight against natural disasters. Finally, the great man succeeded in dealing with a lot of difficulties and went out of the island because of his fighting spirit and hard work.
