AFor several days I saw little of Mr. Rochester. In the morning he seemed very busy with business，and in the afternoon gentlemen from the neighborhood called and sometimes stayed to dine with him. When his foot was well enough，he rode out a great deal. During this time，all my knowledge of him was limited to occasional meetings about the house，when he would sometimes pass me coldly， and sometimes bow and smile. His changes of manner did not offend me, because I saw that I had nothing to do with the cause of them. One evening，several days later，I was invited to talk to Mr.
BLike many of my generation, I have a weakness for hero worship. At some point, however, we all begin to question our heroes and our need for them. This leads us to ask: What is a hero? Despite immense differences in cultures, heroes around the world generally share a number of characteristics that instruct and inspire people. A hero does something worth talking about. A hero has a story of adventure to tell and a community who will listen. But a hero goes beyond mere fame. Heroes serve powers or principles larger than themselves. Like high-voltage(电压) transformers, heroes take the energy of higher powers and step it down so that it can be used by ordinary people. The hero lives a life worthy of imitation. Those who imitate a genuine hero experience life with new depth, enthusiasm, and meaning. A sure test for would-be heroes is what or whom do they serve? What are they willing to live and die for? If the answer or evidence suggests they serve only their own fame, they may be famous persons but not heroes. Madonna and Michael Jackson are famous, but who would claim that their fans find life more abundant? Heroes are catalysts (催化剂) for change. They have a vision from the mountaintop.

The stories remind me of my cousin who used to complain about English learning. He though it unnecessary to learn a foreign language and ignored it at all. As a result, he fell behind the others in his class and even failed in the exam. After realizing that it was not only a main subject but also the most widely spoken language in the world, he developed a good attitude.Thanks to his English teacher, he was well involved in English classes. He practiced listening and speaking English after class. What’s more, he kept an English diary, which helped him think in English. A year later, he became one of the ten top students in his class. Believe it or not, he was even awarded in an English contest in his school. As far as I’m concerned, change your attitude when you find the environment unchangeable. Only in this way can you achieve an eventual change of the world around you.
