5 Look at the pictures on Page 17 and tell us what can make you happy and why you feel happy.

6 What can bring people happiness? How can people become happy? What do you think happiness is?

7 Everyone has their own definition of happiness, may different from others. keep what is happiness in your mind as your own image and enjoy your own happy life.Life is not what other people's thinking,; it is your inside feeling.

8 Happiness isn't about what happens to us; it is about how we perceive what happens to us. It's the knack (skill) of finding a positive for every negative, and viewing a setback as a challenge. It's not wishing for what we don't have, but enjoying what we do possess.

9 Scanning Happiness is the "capacity for enjoyment". The more we can enjoy what we have, the happier we are.

10 According to the survey, loving family, good friends, interesting work and good health were regarded as the most important factors to happiness by some interviewees. To other factors, there were some controversies. But without exceptions, everyone consider family as the most important one in their life. The reason is that family is unique to them. If you lose your money and work, you can earn them back. But if you lose your family, you will never find anyone who can replace them. They always give you great care without asking for your repaying. That’s why family is so important to us.

11 There are no obvious distinctions between the choices of different genders. They all put family in the first place. If any, that might be different attitudes toward money. Compared with men, women seems attach more importance to money. In my view, that is because society requires men to have strong economic power. That is the criterion when a man is judged. Besides, men has to take responsibility to raise a family. So the commonly existed social conception compel them to become money -oriented

12 Write an article Can money buy happiness? Introduction Body: (1) Some people may take it for granted that money is the source of happiness. (2) However, other people stand on a different ground. Conclusion : As far as I am concerned, just as any coin has its two sides, it is no exception (the same case with ) with money.____________________

13 Can money buy happiness? This question has been discussing from generation to generation and different people have different ideas to it. Some people may take it for granted that money is the source of happiness. In their eyes, money means everything. A rich man can buy delicious food, beautiful clothes, comfortable house, luxury cars, and so on. They may hold the opinion that with money they can buy whatever they need, do whatever they want and go wherever they dream of.

14 However, other people stand on a different ground. They firmly point out that money is the root of all evil. For the sake of money, some people would try every possible means and risk everything to obtain it. Money can drive people into stealing, robbing, corrupting and even murdering. Seeing the negative effect of the money, these people insist that money often leads to ruin of a person and even our society.

15 As far as I am concerned, just as any coin has two sides, it is no exception (the same case with ) with money. Money itself is neither good nor bad, whether it can bring us happiness depends on how we earns and spends it. Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort..

16 Money can buy lots of things. Money can do much thing, also. Eating, living, playing all need money. Without money people will not live normal. Money gave we much happiness. So some of people think money is source of happiness. On the other hand, many people think money is root of all evil. The reason that many people commit crime is money. Temptation to obtain money makes people commit crime crime.

17 I think money is a double-edged sword. I think if we feel content about money we have, money will be source of happiness, or it isn't. We must handle relation of money and people. People could not become slaves of money. We need money, but we should feel satisfied. When we have enough money, we should make reasonable use of money. We reduce the desire of money, we will enjoy happiness that money gave we.
