2012考研英语写作高频词句(二)

<考研写作--关于挫折>Adversity is like a touchstone, which can magnify bravery and cowardice. The strong-willed man becomes tougher, while the craven person slips even to be more fragile.

Adversity may result in admirable virtues like perseverance, patience and so on. Just as a proverb goes, "misfortune is blessing in disguise". Adverse situation contributes to steeling one's mind and polishing one's personality.

No one can deny the fact that adversity occurs occasionally in our life, which cannot be avoided. Once encountering it, we can do nothing but face it with courage and wisdom.

<考研写作--关于压力>There are several ways to release pressure as follows. Initially, try to spend more time with family members or friends to communicate with them or to do sports together. In addition, traveling at intervals contributes to eliminate tiredness and pressure.

Stress from family and society makes some people feel frustrated and depressed. For instance, they worry about the installment of flats, the education of children and supporting their aged parents. Being under enormous pressure, one cannot but stick to it.

According to a survey made by Sina, the majority of citizens complain about exorbitant pressure, who hardly have time to entertain themselves and company their family members.

Enormous pressure of citizens results from fierce competition and pursuing high-quality living standard. Being devoid of sense of security, which is triggered by unsound social security system, people are compelled to work overtime with exhaustion.

With the acceleration of life pace in modern society, people are suffering from unprecedented stress, which poses a potential and looming menace to their health mentally and psychologically.
