   Background:Pride and Prejudice is the representative of Jan Austin. The novel tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet the female love story. This works in daily life for the material, an anti society at that time the popular sentimental novel and the affectation of writing methods, vividly reflects the eighteenth century to the end of the 19th century at the beginning of the conservative and occlusion of the British town life and ways of the world. And has been adapted for film and television series.(《傲慢与偏见》是简·奥斯汀的代表作。小说讲述了乡绅之女伊丽莎白·班内特的爱情故事。这部作品以日常生活为素材,一反当时社会上流行的感伤小说的内容和矫揉造作的写作方法,生动地反映了18世纪末到19世纪初处于保守和闭塞状态下的英国乡镇生活和世态人情。并多次被改编成电影和电视剧。)

Good sentence:1.“you must allow me to flatter(奉承)myself ,dear cousin ,that you do not intend to refuse me for long.My situation in life ,my connection  with the de Bourgh family ,and my relationship to your own ,all make my proposal a very suitable one .And you should remember that in spite of your many admirable qualities ,it is  not certain that you will receive any other offer of marriage ,as you have very little money of your own.”[by  Mr Collins]

In my opinion ,Mr Collins is a  very prim mediocrity and he is good at flattering .He has brought many trouble for Elizabeth,

   2.“Sir,thank you again for the honour you have done me but to accept your proposal is absolutely impossible .Can I speak plainer  than that ?Do not think of me as an  elegant female ,but as a thinking creature speaking the truth from her heart !”[by Elizabeth]

In my opinion ,Elizabeth is very confident does not like as her mother Mrs Bennet that eager the money ,instead ,she is very self-respect.she can follow her heart.she Decided not to go back to the arrogant guy.She has many admirable places, as in the novel, she said the lovely bright, and no one elegant conversation. Her honesty, grace, and wisdom made her stand out from her social class.

 3.‘come here child ,’said her father as she appeared .I have sent for you on a very important matter .I understand  that Mr Collins has made you an offer of marriage ,and you have refuseed?’When  Elizabeth nodded ,he continued ,‘very well.Now your mother insists on your accepting .Is not that right ,Mrs Bennet ?’‘ Yes,or I will never see her again .You now have an unhappy choice to make ,Elizabeth .From this day on ,you must be a stranger to be one of your parent .You mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr Collins ,and I will never see again if you do.’

   In my opinion ,He used his humorous words to mock his wife,from this we know that Mr Bennet is a sensible man,he he will not force her daughter marry with Mr Collins who her daughter does not like ,but he will respect her daughters choice. Mr Bennet was in sharp contrast to Mrs Bennet.

Name:  Jane Eyre

 Background:About an English woman who has become an orphan in all kinds of hardships, the pursuit of freedom and dignity, to adhere to the self, the ultimate success of the story. The novel fascinating display of the hero and heroine of the ups and downs of love experience, praise of the old customs and prejudices, the success of a dare to resist, and dare to fight for freedom and peace.

Good sentence:

1. Why you want to tell me that! She told you that has nothing to do with me. Do you think I'm poor, not good-looking, without feelings? I will, if god had gifted me with wealth and beauty, I must make you to leave me as it is now for me to leave you! God did not so. Our spirit is same, just like you with my grave, will equally by standing in front of god!

 In my opinion :Even if Jane Eyre she is poor, humble and not beautiful, short, but she is very wise, she has a strong, brave heart .And i really appreciate her that she dare to take the initiative to express their love to each other.

2.I think the bird flies but the sea birds fly, is that no courage of the sea, years later I discovered, not the bird flies past, but not the other side of the sea, and had no waiting

 In my opinion :she is able to express her own thought,she wanted to be free, not to be bound by others.

3.You know some birds are not meant to be caged, their feathers are just too bright.

 In my opinion :Jane Eyre is a rational understanding of their own ideas and personality of the female, a steady pursuit of women for their own emotional well-being and a no longer blindly follow the men and secular requirement female, one of their own values and emotions to make independent judgments of a female. A strong and independent woman.

Name:  Before I Fall

Background:Mainly tells the story of a death and rebirth, awakening and redemption.Samantha Emily Kingston, a beautiful seventeen year old girl, thought that life was full of sunshine and laughter, but the reality is not as beautiful as it looks: people who hate Samantha may have more than one who likes her, and some simple and important things to do; some secrets to her, and the fact that she can change.

Good sentence:

1.I used to think thats  what love was knowing someone so well he was like a part of you.

In my opinion :When she rebirths, she realized that they squandered youth, light Yin like dirt, always think I have to spend time and energy and what they do before is so frivolous.Its Alert her to change her attitude towards life.

2.As I lie there I start making a mental list of all the things I’d like to do in my life, as though they’re still possible. Most of them are just plain crazy, but I don’t think about that, just go on listing and listing like it’s as easy as writing up what you need from the grocery store. Fly in a private jet. Eat a fresh-baked croissant from a bakery in Paris. Ride a horse all the way from Connecticut to California but stay in only the best hotel rooms along the way. Some of them are simpler: take Izzy to Goose Point, a place I discovered the first and only time I’d ever tried to run away. Order the Fat Feast at the diner—a bacon cheese-burger, a milk shake, and an entire plate of cheese fries—and eat it without stressing, like I used to do on my birthday every single year. Run around in the rain. Have scrambled eggs in bed.

In my opinion :On the occasion of her death, she thought there was so much wish that she did not realize .But we can know from her list of wishes that she is pure, kind and full of hope. We know that Her wish is the little things of life, the details of life ,and she wants to care her family members,treasure her friendship.

3.I’m not scared, if that’s what you’re wondering. The moment of death is full of sound and warmth and light, so much light it fills me, absorbs me: a tunnel of light shooting away, arcing up and up and up, and if singing were a feeling it would be this, this light, this lifting, like laughing… The rest you have to find out for yourself.

In my opinion :Finally, she finally realized that she is unwilling to die so chaotic, Sam finally wake up the profligate youth, who do not know when death will come, young and frivolous publicity will often be wrong and hurt life. She doesn't want to just die, she wants to own worth living in this world and, even if ultimately she must die, she hope that all people will not only remember her, and would be happy to remember her.

Name: The Litter Prince

Good sentence:

1.You know — one loves the sunset, when one is so sad…

In my opinion :This is a very simple truth if you're in a bad mood to see things and scenery are very sad ,on the contrary,if you have a good mood ,you are so happy ,you want to see the Positive things .This sentence impressed me a lot!

2.If someone loves a flower, of which just one single blossom grows in all the millions and millions of stars, it is enough to make him happy just to look at the stars. He can say to himself, "Somewhere, my flower is there…" But if the sheep eats the flower, in one moment all his stars will be darkened… And you think that is not important!

In my opinion :Because you don't know what she is in the stars, so it seems that all the stars have her like you. In fact, the unique meaning is no substitute 。You are  the most precious

3.The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat.

In my opinion :Love makes people understand the sadness and pain, and make people get rid of the lonely, makes life fun and meaningful .Everyone is yearning for freedom.From this we can know that  the world of adults are so emptiness and blindness ,they are Not as pure as the children. The little prince learned to love in the fox, and realized that what he wanted to pursue, he would leave the little fox to bear his responsibility, but the little prince did not know he has tamed the little fox, as well as his little fox must bear the responsibility.

4.Only the children know what they are looking for. They waste their time over a rag doll and it becomes very important to them; and if anybody takes it away from them, they cry…

5.What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well…

In my opinion: We need to  live with hope!

6.All men have the stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all these stars are silent. You – you alone – will have the stars as no one else has them…

7.In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night… You – only you – will have stars that can laugh…
我就在繁星中的一颗上生活。我会站在其中的一颗星星上微笑。当你在夜间仰望天际时,就仿佛每一颗星星都在笑……你——只有你——才能拥有会笑的星星……(impressed me so much!)

Background:London as the background, tells the story of life and suffered a tragic orphan, the protagonist Oliver grew up in an orphanage, through apprenticeship, hard to flee, strayed into the den of thieves, and forced the culprit and cruel, experienced countless bitterness, finally with the help of good people, find out and get a happy life experience

1.As he spoke,he pointed hastily to the picture above Oliver head; and then to the boy’s face.There was its living copy.The eyes,the head,the mouth; every feature was the same.The expression was,for an instant,so precisely alike,that the minutest line seemed copied with startling accuracy” …from the moment when Mr.Bumble realizes who Oliver is

2.When the boy is worth a hundred pounds to me,am I to lose what chance threw me in the way of getting safely,through the whims of a drunken gang that I could whistle away the lives of!And me bound,too,to a born devil,that only wants the will and has the power’”…Statement by Fagin to Nancy that shows the depth of his greed and exploitation of the people around him

3.But even if he has been wicked,’ pursed Rose,‘think how young he is,think that he may never have known a mother’s love,or the comfort of a home; and that ill-usage and blows,or the want of bread,may have driven him to herd with men who have forced him to guilt.Aunt,dear aunt,for mercy’s sake,think of this,before you let them drag this sick child to a prison,which in any case must be the grave of all his chances of amendment.’”…The powerful speech by Rose that saves Oliver from going to prison.This speech is also a statement by Dickens about the effectiveness of the prison system in saying that it does not reform people.

4.Oliver, Nancy, miss Ross are good representatives, they were all born in misery, growing up in the dark and full of evil in the world, but in their hearts have always maintained a pure world, a good heart, all kinds of hardships did not bring them down or corrupt, but also show their come out of the dirty mud unsoiled the The brightness dazzles the eyes. crystal quality.

In my opinion: The protagonist Oliver courageous spirit, although in the dark art institute suffered the hardships of life, but not to such a beautiful heart is covered with dust,and never let he down. I think that the writer wants to tell us the courage to face life, reflect the tragic life of the London slums. At that time he had a lofty moral intent: to protest social injustice, and to arouse public opinion, the implementation of reforms to the poor in dire straits rescue.He hopes that He wants the people in the community not to be so cold .
