Don't be a tortoise or a rabbit when it comes to your happiness. Be a playful puppy and carry your stick of __14__ with you everywhere you go. __15__ yourself out of the race and realize that when it comes to love and happiness, you are already there.

  【要点综述】 本文是一篇夹叙夹议的文章。本文主题是关于美国梦的,讲述作者在遭遇一系列不幸后,在乡村的经历使其对美国梦有了深刻的认识。 考查副词辨析。根据本句中the same thing的提示可知,作者和其他人都在各自(separately)追逐同一个梦想。 考查副词辨析。根据前半部分“经历了不愉快的事件”以及后面一句话“‘我’发现自己无家可归、独身一人”可知,此处指作者的生活变得fall apart意为“破碎,土崩瓦解”。故选B项。 考查动词辨析。根据本句可知,作者在乡下寻找能租住的地方。search意为“寻找”,符合语境。 考查形容词最高级辨析。根据前一句“I had my truck and $56.”以及后面一句中“I came upon a shabby house…”可知,作者身上没有多少钱,所以要租最便宜的房子。故选D项。B 考查动词辨析。根据house的修饰词shabby和full of broken glass and rubbish可知,这幢房子没人居住,是被遗弃的。故选B项。 考查名词辨析。根据第三段最后一句可知,他们认为邻里间应友好相处,由此说明他们教作者的是邻里间相处的艺术(art)。 考查动词辨析。根据本句中chat可知,他们送来毛毯、蜡烛、工具之后继续留下来聊天。stick around意为“逗留,在 考查形容词辨析。根据第一段可知,作者理解的美国梦就是取得个人成就,而这里他们认为的梦想是邻里之间友好相处,因此是不同的。故选C项。 考查形容词辨析。根据第一段可知,作者之前认为的那些东西如工作、按揭、信贷、成功,是在文明生活中必须具备的,而在这个地方则完全不存在。与non­existent相对的是necessary。 考查名词辨析。根据第三段最后一…but of neighbourliness.”的提示可知,在这座山上,作者最有价值的财富便是与邻居间的关系。relationship关系。 考查名词辨析。根据第二段可知,作者在乡下居住;根据本句中的moved back可知,现在是回到城里。故选C项。 考查动词辨析。根据本句前半句的提示可知,许多人过着艰难的生活,说明他们失去了工作和家园。故选B项。 考查动词短语辨析。根据下文可知,作者租住的房子最初有4个人,后来又多达9个人,因此,作者租了一间足够大的房子,是为了收留更多的人。take in意为“收留”,符合语境。 考查名词辨析。如果不联合起来,作者和其他人就都会在收容所中。shelter收容所,庇护所。 考查连接词辨析。现在作者所信仰的“美国梦”是同舟共济,不是能为自己获得什么,而是如何通过共同努力让所有人都有收获。此处表示方式,所以用how。
