When we talk about the relationship between sports and classes, although many people think they are irrelative, in my point, playing sports can teach us lessons about life. We can learn something in the processes of playing sports instead of accepting the knowledge from the books. Because the incidents we experience or witness by ourselves must be impressive more than the issues we just heard.
The most crucial reason to illustrate my view is that playing sports can teach us to preserve in attempting and striving. Whatever the obstacle was hard, persons who can face it and hold up to overpower it are players. As everyone known, Liu Xiang, one of the famous players in the world after the Olympic Game of 2004 because he won the champion unexpected, and become a controversial person because he quitted the competition when everyone had prepared to look forward to his display, nevertheless, has never given up his sports dream, professional career, and steadfast belief. Although because of Liu’s wound he cannot run faster than before, he still stock to practicing and tried his best to back to the track. It is called “the spirit of players”. Players must train so hard every day since they were kids that playing sports teaches them not to say giving up easily. If they did not work hard, they would never have an opportunity to stand in the world stage and do nothing but waste their youth. Thus, insisting to practice is the only way to achieve their dream.
Another significant reason supporting my view is that playing sports teach us to cooperate. Getting well with person in a group is always the crucial way to achieve the goal. Kobe Bryant, the leader of Lakers which team got the champion of last NBA season, is one of the greatest basketball players who can be compared to J. However, at the first, when Kobe became the capital of the team, the Lakers did not do well even though Kobe got so many scores with remarkable ability but he neglect the power of a team. He always did everything by himself, and gave others less belief. From the failure of former races, Kobe realized that nobody could get a splendid achievement without others’ help especially working in a basketball team. So, he paid more attention to cooperate with his teammates: practicing with them, contributing more assisting, and giving others more opportunities to shoot to improve their skills and abilities. Consequently, even though Kobe did not get more scores that he got in the former plays, the whole team showed perfectly.
In conclusion, players’ personal experience manifest that playing sports can not only teach us to persist in our minds and belief, but also teach us to cooperate with others. These things about our life cannot be learned from books, movies, or other mediums but playing sports.
This week our group read the word famous novel called < A Tale of Two Cities >. We spend one week to reading this book. After reading "A tale of two cities" "A tale of two cities" is one of Dickens's most important representative works. The novel profoundly exposed the society contradiction before the French Revolution, intensely attacks the aristocratic social class is dissolute and cruel, and sincerely sympathizes with the depressed classes.
The novel also described many magnificent scenes like the revolt people attacked Bastille and so on, which displayed people's great strength.The novel has portrayed many different people.

The complex hatred is hard to solve, the cruel revenge has made more hatreds, loves rebirth in the hell edge, but take the life as the price. As an outstanding writer, in Dickens's work, the language skill is essential. Each kind of rhetoric technique, like the analogy, the exaggeration, the contrast, the humorous, and the taunt are handled skillfully, and the artistry of the work is also delivered the peak.
"A tale of two cities" has its difference with the general historical novel, its character and the main plot are all fictionalizes. With the broad real background of the French Revolution, the author take the fictional character Doctor Manette's experience as the main clue, interweaves the unjust charge, upholstery and so many techniques, causes the structure integrity and strictness, the plot winding anxious and rich of theatrical nature, it displayed the remarkable artistic skill. the style "A tale of two cities" is solemnity and melancholy, fills indignation, but lacks the humor of the early works.

As we saw in the closing portions of the book, Dumas gives us a fully developed Romance within his historical framework. He starts with levity and confidence, and ends with moroseness and doubt. The ending, indeed, seems to question many of the books dearly held
