Some of the notebooks George Washington kept as a young man are still in existence。 They show that he was learning Latin, was very interested in the basics of good behavior in society,
and was reading English literature.
At school he seems only to have been interested in mathematics. In fact, his formal education was surprisingly brief for a gentleman, and incomplete. For unlike other young Virginian of that day, he did not go to the College of William and Mary in the Virginian capital of Williamsburg. In terms of formal training then, Washington contrasts sharply with some other early American Presidents such as John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. In later years,Washington probably regretted his lack of intellectual training. He never felt comfortable in a
debate in Congress(国会) ,or on any Subject that had not to do with everyday,practical matters. And because he never learned French and could not speak directly to the French leaders,he did not visit the country he admired so much. Thus, unlike Jefferson and Adams, he never reached Europe

We can make mistakes at any age. Some mistakes we make are about money. But most mis-
takes are about people. "Did Jerry really care when I broke up with Helen? When I got that
great job,did Jerry really feel good about it,as a friend? Or did he envy my luck?" When we look back, doubts like these can make us feel bad. But when we look back, it's too late.
Why do we go wrong about our friends--or our enemies? Sometimes what people say hides
their real meaning. And if we don't really listen, we miss the feeling behind the words. Suppose someone tells you. "you're a lucky dog". Is he really on your side? if he says. "You're a lucky guy"or"You're a lucky gal". That's being friendly. But"lucky dog"? There's a bit of envy in those words. Maybe he doesn't see it himself. But bringing in the"dog"bit puts you down a little. What he may be saying is that he doesn't think you deserve your luck.
How can you tell the real meaning behind someone's words? One way is to take a good look at the person talking. Do his words fit the way he looks? Does what he says square with the tone of voice? His posture (~,)? The look in his eyes? Stop and think. The minute you spend
thinking about the real meaning of what people say to you may save another mistake。

Why was Bastille important to the citizens of Paris? The building of the Bastille had been started in 1370 under Charles V. By the seventeenth century it had stopped to be important for defense. Cardinal Richelieu turned it into a prison. It was not an ordinary prison to punish common crimes. Its huge doors closed only on enemies of the King. The Bastille's workings were secret. Prisoners were taken to it in closed vehicles. Soldiers on guard duty had to stand with their faces to the wall. No talking was allowed. Worst of all, a prisoner never knew if he would be there a day, a week, a year, or forever. Only the King's letter could set him free.
Over the years the number of arrests by King's letter had become fewer. By the time of its fall, most of the prisoners were writers who had written against the corruptions(贪污腐败)of the government Voltaire, the famous French writer, spent a year there in 1717 ~ 1718, and another 12 days in 1726.
For those who believed in free speech and free thinking, the Bastille stood for everything evil. The day it was captured, only seven prisoners were found inside. Still, the Bastille was hated by the people. It was a symbol of the King's complete power.
