Not give a fig for anniversary impressive credit beyond doubt Imagination remarkable
What was remarkable about 2005 was perhaps that the United Nations declared it “The World Year of Physics”. It was the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s theory of relativity and the 50th anniversary of his death. In 1905 Einstein published five highly important essays in the history of science, thus revolutionizing physics. His great achievement can be credited to his impressive powers of imagination, constant questioning, and not giving a fig for authority. It is beyond doubt that Einstein was the greatest scientist in the 20th century. Unit 5 1. 这座红房子在参天古树的映衬下十分夺目。

他们要么一年四季穿着破旧的牛 仔裤；要么大冬天也打赤脚；要么饮酒过度；要么就抱着创作一部杰作 的幻想，实际上并不做任何创作的事。
其实，他们中的很多人只不过是 为了看上去像一名艺术家，或为了同其他艺术家“保持一致”才这么做 的。
Clint to fancy in tune Look the part masterpiece persistent to excess stand out Here and there we can see young artists who stand out from other people. They may be in worn-out jeans all year round, or walk barefoot / in bare feet even in winter, or drink to excess, or cling to the fancy of creating a masterpiece, without actually doing any creative work. Actually/In fact/As a matter of fact, many of them act like this just to look the part, or to be “in tune with” other artists. They have forgotten that only through persistent efforts can one achieve success.
Unit 4 He had impressive powers of concentration. Einstein's sister, Maja, recalled "...even when there was a lot of noise, he could lie down on the sofa, pick up a pen and paper, precariously balance an inkwell on the backrest and engross himself in a problem so much that the background noise stimulated rather than disturbed him." Einstein was clearly intelligent, but not outlandishly more so than his peers. "I have no special talents," he claimed, "I am only passionately curious." And again: "The contrast between the popular assessment of my powers ... and the reality is simply grotesque." Einstein credited his discoveries to imagination and pesky questioning more so than orthodox intelligence. Unit5 The Reverend Nelson wrote that his decades as a "simple, old-fashioned principal" had ended with schools undergoing such swift changes that he had retired in self-doubt. "I heard more of what I had done wrong than what I did right," he said, adding that my letter had brought him welcome reassurance that his career had been appreciated. A glance at Grandma's familiar handwriting brought back in a flash memories of standing alongside her white rocking chair, watching her "settin' down" some letter to relatives. Character by character, Grandma would slowly accomplish one word, then the next, so that a finished page would consume hours. I wept over the page representing my Grandma's recent hours invested in expressing her loving gratefulness to me -- whom
she used to diaper!
