        A young woman was really upset about herlife.She went to her mother and complainedthat things were so hard for her.She was tired of fighting and struggling.
  Her mother said nothing but took her to the kitchen.She filled three pots with water.In the first pot she placed a carrot.In the second,an egg.And in the last she placed some coffee beans.She then heated the three pots.About20minutes later,she turned off the burners.A carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
 
  Turning to her daughter,the mother said,“Tell me what you see.”The daughter replied impatiently,“They are just a carrot,an egg and coffee.”
  The mother brought the daughter closer and asked her to feel the carrot.“It is soft,”the daughter reluctantly felt it and said.The mother then asked the daughter to take the egg and break it.After pulling off the shell,she could now see the hard-boiled egg inside.Finally,the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee,whose rich aroma filled the kitchen.
  “I’m asking you to help me with my hard life.But what’s the point now,mother?”The daughter spoke out her concerns rudely.
  “Listen to me,my darling,”said the mother,slowly and gently.“Each of these objects had faced the same adversity—boiling water.But each reacted differently.The carrot was strong and hard before being boiled.But later it got softened and became weak.The egg had been fragile and its thin outer shell protected its liquid center.But,after sitting through the boiling water,its insides became hardened.The coffee beans were unique,however.They changed the water after they were boiled in the water.”
  “So which are you?”the mother asked her daughter.“When adversity knocks on your door,how do you respond?Are you a carrot,an egg or coffee beans?”
