This quotation from Winston Churchill tells us that we shouldn’t get discouraged right after failures. Instead, we should keep trying with enthusiasm. Success consists in the ability to continue efforts through failures.
At the age of twelve, I got a nice bike as a birthday gift. So excited was I that I couldn’t wait to try my hand at riding it. However, it was harder than expected. The bike seemed too heavy and difficult to control. Worse still, I took many falls off the bike. I was about to give up when my father came and encouraged me to keep going. With more practice, I did better and better.
Looking back, I feel I wouldn’t be able to ride a bike had I lost heart. Actually, we can’t succeed in everything we try. What’s important is that we should stick at it.

What will our earth be like after 50 years? I have some wonderful predictions.
The environment then will be much better than it is now. People can enjoy the blue sky, white clouds and fresh air. There will be less pollution. Trees and flowers can be seen here and there. The rivers will be cleaner as no factories pour waste into the rivers and lakes. As for people’s life, there will be great changes. First, people will lead a more comfortable life because robots will reach each family and help people do the housework. In addition, people can work at their own homes on the Internet. In this way, they will have more time to entertain themselves. The earth will become a more comfortable planet for people to live on 50 years later.
