As is unfolded in the cartoon above, in front of a knocked-over bottle of water with most water flowing out stand two men. One man, looking rather upset, says “There is nothing left. How unlucky I am!”, while the other one quickly picks up the bottle, saying “I am such a lucky dog, and there is still some still some left”. How vivid the cartoon is! The two men show quite different attitudes toward the same situation.
Without any doubt, the purpose of the cartoon is to show us that we should keep optimistic no matter what circumstances we undergo. First and foremost, it is universally held that life is by no means perfect and in the course of life we are bound to experience and encounter a variety of difficulties. In order to achieve our goal, we should tackle the obstacles positively rather than in a negative way. In the second place, according to some research findings, a positive attitude does good to our life in that it will assist us in solving the tough issues.
From what has been argued above, we may reasonably arrive at the conclusion that we should embrace attitudes and behave confidently. Only in this way can we solve the issues confronting us successfully.

The terrible scene depicted in the cartoon shows that some people in our daily life still lack the awareness of environmental protection. The picture illustrates that two tourists are chatting and eating happily on a boat and casually throwing their rubbish into the lake which is full of litter and waste. The drawing sets us thinking too much due to its far-reaching influence.
Nowadays, though the awareness of protecting environment is being accepted by more and more people, we can still see many unpleasant scenes especially in scenic spots. Why does this phenomenon arise? Many factors are accounting for it. First and foremost, to some people, the consciousness of protecting environment is still not so strong. They may not think it is a big deal to throw rubbish everywhere. In addition, the environment management system isn’t so satisfying. For example, in some places there’re few regulations or the implementation is seldom performed actually.
From what has been discussed above, it is urgent to take some effective and relative measures. In the first place, we should continue to conduct more propaganda in communities and schools so as to let people realize the importance of protecting the environment. In the second, more rules should be made and carried out by the government to restrain the conduction of destroying the environment. People should work together to create clean and beautiful surroundings.
