你校英文报正在征稿。请你结合下面的名人名言(famous quote)，写一篇题为“My Understanding of Failure”的征文。
“Aman can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.”
My Understanding of Failure
This famous quote from J:Burroughs conveys that when faced with failure we should reflect on ourselves instead of putting the blame on others, which is more important than failure itself.
When entering high school many classmates found it really difficult to learn maths and did poorly in exams. They blamed it on the teacher rather than themselves, which resulted in even poorer performance. I was no exception. However, when I realized complaining made no sense, I adjusted my learning methods and turned to the teacher whenever I encountered difficult problems. Gradually I began to make progress which in turn boosted my confidence in maths.
The lesson I have drawn from this experience is that only by bravely taking full responsibility for failure rather than blaming others can we succeed.

Youth and Me
Happy 10th anniversary to Youth, our most popular School English paper without which my youth couldn’t have been so rewarding!
For lack of confidence I seldom got involved in any social activities as a junior school student. Luckily, one day I happened to read an article about the secret of confidence carried by Youth. Under its professional guidance, I attempted to fit in with others. It was Youth that encouraged me to go through tough times and shaped me what I am now. Even now reading my favorite column, Help the Needy, still gives me a strong power to strengthen my heart. It not only talks about the troubles we may come across in school life but also offers a range of practical solutions. For me it serves as a good helper and a devoted companion.
I hope Youth will become increasingly popular and stay in youth forever.
请根据你对以下两幅图的理解，以“Actions Speak Louder Than Words”为题，用英语写一篇作文。你的作文应包括以下内容:
The two pictures vividly illustrate two different approaches to the same issue. When celebrating
Earth Day, one man simply puts up a banner on a lonely tree surrounded by a pile of stumps, but in vain, while the other picture shows two people planting a tree happily.
The two types of people are common in our daily life. Some restrict their efforts only to their words, calling on other people to do one thing or another while others suit their words to actions, and make every effort to make a difference in life. The message conveys here is clear: “Actions speak louder than words.”
The pictures make me aware of what I should do in my daily life. Rather than just shout empty words, we should do what we can to make a difference such as donating books to children in need and strictly follow traffic rules. It is only when we match our words with actions that we can help build up a harmonious society.

The lecture you gave on the role English plays in cross-cultural communication is the best the campus has ever seen.

Thank you again and we look forward to more wonderful lectures from you in the future.
