No rigid imitation of others-woodmam

It was hard to expect a vacation, Joule and his brother went on a trip together. He found a lame horse, let his brother hold, but he quietly hid behind, with voltaic battery will be electric current flow to the horse, want to test the animal's reaction to the current. As a result, the lame horse jumped wildly by the electric shock, almost had an accident.

  They rowed again to the lake surrounded by green hills. Joule decided to try how loud the echo here. He stuffed a large amount of gunpowder in the muzzle and pulled the trigger. Who knew that the sound of the gun, "whoop", a long jet of flame, burning Jiao Er's eyebrows, but also scared his brother almost fell into the water.

  Later, they were excited to climb a high mountain. Only to see the distant thick clouds hanging low, can vaguely see the lightning, and then hear the rolling thunder. What was going on? Joule used his pocket watch to carefully record the time from the start of the lightning to the sound of thunder.

  After school started, Joule told his teacher about all the experiments he had done. Dalton laughed and said, "Of these experiments, only the last one did you get right." He sagely admonished Joule: one can deduce how far apart lightning occurs if one has mastered the speed of light and the speed of sound, from the time one sees the lightning to the time one hears the thunder.

  Joule was amazed to hear, "Could there be so much learning hidden in boring mathematics?" Dalton gave many examples to enlighten him that a real scientific experiment cannot only observe phenomena, but must have precise measurements and learn to use mathematical knowledge to summarize the laws from the measured data.

  Joule was so enlightened that he began to focus on theoretical learning and precise measurement. After such unremitting efforts, he finally became a world-renowned physicist.

  Do not imitate others rigidly

  Everyone has his or her own characteristics, and there are jobs that suit him or her, and there are jobs that do not suit him or her. Remember, you are always unique.

  Stik graduated to find a job, his uncle told him a story. The man, whose family lived in Philadelphia and was poor as a child, walked into a bank and asked, "Excuse me, sir, do you need a hand?"

  A well-mannered man replied, "No, son, I don't need any."

  The child was full of sorrow, and he was chewing on a licorice lollipop, which he had bought for a nickel, money he had stolen from his pious, well-meaning aunt. He was clearly sobbing, large teardrops rolling to his cheeks. Without a word, he jumped down the marble steps of the bank. The banker bent behind the door with great grace, because he felt that the child wanted to throw a stone at him. But the child picked up something and tucked it into his shabby, tattered jacket.

  "Come here, child." The child really went over, and the banker asked, "Look, what did you pick up?" The answer: "A pin." The banker said, "Little boy, are you a good boy?" He replied, "Yes." The banker asked again, "Do you believe in the Lord? --I mean, do you go to Sunday school?" He replied, "Yes."

  Then the banker took a solid gold pen, wrote the word "StPeter" on the paper with pure ink, and asked the child what he thought. The child said, "Salty Peter (the child mistook the abbreviation of Saint for salt, which means salty)". The banker told him that the word was "St. Peter" and the child said "Oh!"

  The banker then made the boy his partner, gave him half of the profits from the investment, and he married the banker's daughter. Now, everything the banker owned was his, all to himself.

  Stik felt that this story was still inspiring to him. So, he spent six weeks looking for pins in front of a bank. He looked forward to the banker who would call himself in and ask: "Little boy, are you a good boy?"

  And he would answer, "Yes."

  If the banker asks, "What does 'StJohn' mean?"

  He would say, "It's 'Salty John'."

  But then Stick found out that the banker was not eager to find a partner, and he thought he didn't have a daughter and was afraid he had a son, because one day a banker asked Stick, "What are you picking up, little boy?"

  Sticke said with great humility and courtesy: "A pin."

  The banker said, "Let's have a look." He took the pin.

  Stiker took off his hat and was ready to follow him into the bank, become his partner, and marry his daughter.

  However, he was not invited. The banker said, "These pins belong to the bank, and if I see you walking around here again, I'll let the dogs bite you!"

  Then Stick walked away and the pins were confiscated by the stingy guy. He told his uncle about his experience, and his uncle laughed. Then, he told him a story.

  There was a man who had a donkey and a pug. The donkey was kept in a pen, and although he did not worry about food, he had to go to the mill every day to pull the mill and go to the woods to pack wood, which was quite heavy work, while the pug could perform many tricks and was very popular with his master, and every time he could get a delicious reward. The donkey, while working, inevitably complained that fate was not fair to him. One day the opportunity came, the donkey broke the reins and ran into his master's room, dancing around him like a pug, stomping and kicking, knocking over the table and shattering the dishes. The donkey felt that this was not enough, it actually fell on the master's body to lick his face, the master was terrified and shouted for help. When everyone heard the shouting, the donkey arrived in a hurry and was waiting for a reward, but he received a beating and was put back into the pen.

  No matter how squirming the donkey is, it is not as cute as the puppy, or even better than its former self, after all, this is not the line of work it can do. Just as you love watching movies, but you may not be an actor, you love playing soccer, but the league you can not play on the field.

  Adams' choice

  Don't think that learning is a chore, it's because you haven't gotten deep enough into it yet to appreciate the joy of being in it.

  John Adams was the second president of the United States.

  When Adams was a child, he had to learn Latin grammar, but he thought it was a rather boring thing. So he told his father, "I don't like Latin, can't I do something else? Maybe I'm better suited for something else."

  "Well, John dear," said his father, "you might try digging a ditch. Our front pasture needs a ditch, and since you're looking for something else to do, you might as well give it a try."

  Adams excitedly ran out to the pasture to work, and soon he felt that digging ditches was a chore, not as comfortable as sitting at the table to learn Latin, so he was ready to resume his studies. But he did not show it on the surface, because he was very noble, pride drove him to work another day, but the fatigue finally overcame pride, he ran back to learn that "boring" Latin.

  In his later years, John Adams continued to believe that the following events played an important role in shaping his character and the direction of his life.

  As a child, Adams had no interest in reading, and his father's attempts to induce him in various ways failed. Angry, his father bluntly asked his 10-year-old son, "What do you want to do, son?"

  "To be a farmer." Adams answered without hesitation.
