  • In the United States many have been told that anyone can become rich and successful if he works hard and has some good luck.

    Yet, when one becomes rich, he wants people to know it.And even if he does not become very rich, he wants people to think that he is.That is what “keeping up with the Joneses” is about.It is the story of someone who tries to look as rich and as successful as his neighbors.

    The expression was first used in 1913 by a young American by the name of Arthur Momand.He told this story about himself: he began earning $125 a week at the age of 23.That was a lot of money in those days.Young Momand was very proud of his riches.He got married and moved with his wife to a very wealthy neighborhood outside New York City.But just moving there was not enough.When he saw that rich people rode horses, Momand went horse riding every day.When he saw that rich people had servants, Momand and his wife also hired a servant and gave big parties for their new neighbors.

    It was like a race, but one could never finish this race because one was always trying to keep up.Momand and his wife could not do that.

    The race ended for them when they could no longer pay for their new way of life.They left their wealthy neighborhood and moved back to an apartment in New York City.

    Momand looked around him and noticed that many people do things just to keep up with their neighbors.He saw the funny side of it and started to write a series of short stories.He called it “keeping up with the Joneses”, because “Jones” is a very common name in the United States.“Keeping up with the Joneses” came to mean keeping up with the people around you.Momand’s series appeared in different newspapers across the country for over 28 years.

    Every city has an area where people want to live because others will think better of them if they do.And there are “Joneses” in every city of the world.But one must get tired of trying to keep up with the Joneses, because no matter what one does, Mr.Jones always seems to be ahead.

    A.anyone in the United States can become rich

    B.anyone in the United Sates can become rich if he works hard and has some good luck

  • A certain hunter had found a piece of forest where there were plenty of animals to hunt.The only trouble was that the place was very difficult to get to.

    He returned from his first visit to the place in late autumn, and could not get back until the snow melted in the following spring.Then he went to the pilot of a small plane, who earned his living by carrying hunters over parts of the country where there were no roads and no railways.He asked the pilot to take him back to the piece of forest.

    The pilot did not know the place, so the hunter showed it to him on the map.“But there is nowhere to land there,” said the pilot.“I have flown over that we can’t land anywhere between this river and these mountains.”

    “I thought you were a wonderful pilot,” said the hunter, “some of my friends said you could land a plane on a postage stamp.”

    “That’s right,” answered the pilot.“I can land a plane where nobody else can.But I tell you there is nowhere to land in the place you are talking about.”

    “And what if I tell you that another pilot did land me there last spring?” said the hunter.

    “Is that true?” asked the pilot.

    “Yes, it is.I swear it.”

    Well, this pilot could not let himself beaten by another, so he agreed to take the hunter.

    When they reached the place, the hunter pointed out a small spot without trees in the middle of the forest, with a steep rise(陡坡) at one end.The pilot thought there was not enough room to land there, but the hunter said that the other pilot had done so the year before, so down went the plane.When it came to the rise, it turned right over onto its back.As the hunter climbed out, he smiled happily and said, “Yes, that is exactly how the other pilot managed it last time.”.
