      Most great inventors often met with much trouble in their work. Before they could succeed, they had to learn to face thousands of difficulties which were put in their way. The following is one of  such examples.

      George Stephenson, a famous British inventor, made the first train in 1825 with a steam engine. When he was experimenting with the engine on the train,he met with troubles from the goverment,the newspapers and the gentlemen in the country. They said that the noise and the smoke would kill cows,horses and sheep, that the engine would burst or that the hot coals from it would set fire to their houses. People believed what they said. George Stephenson told the people that the train could go on small rails wiyh goods and passengers on it and that there was no great danger to him. It was a very difficult matter for him to make them believe. However,after some time,he was able to do it,and the tirst train that was driven by Stephenson himself proved a complete success. The first day when the train ran on the rails,people along the way heard the noise of the train in the distance,and saw it running quickly to them.They thought it was a monster. They ran quickly back home for fear and closed their doors tightly.They didn't dare to come out until it had passed.A week later an old woman eveb said her hen had been so frightened that it hadn't laid any eggs for three days.

大多数发明家在工作中经常会遇到很多麻烦,在他们成功前,他们不得不要学会面对提出的成千上万的妨碍他们的困难。下面的是诸如此类问题之一
乔治·史蒂芬森(1781 - 1848),一个著名的英国发明家,在1825年用蒸汽机发明了第一辆火车,当他用这发动机试验这火车时,他遇到了来自政府部门、报社和绅士们的麻烦。他们说噪音和烟会杀死牛、马、羊;发动机可能会爆炸;燃煤可能会使房子着火。人们相信他们所说,史蒂芬森告诉人们说,火车在铁轨上能载货物、乘客,不会给他们有大的危险。这是一个很麻烦的问题使人们相信他,然而,之后他可以试了。史蒂芬森亲自开着第一辆火车证实了一个圆满的成功。第一天,火车行驶在轨道上时,沿途的人们听到远处火车的噪音,看到它快速地跑向他们,他们想是一个怪物,他们害怕得飞快跑回家、紧紧地关上门,直到火车离去才敢出来。一周后,一个老人说,她的母鸡被吓得三天没有下蛋了。(本文潜龙家教谭老师亲笔翻译并录入)
亲爱的同学们,中国人发明火药制造鞭炮敬神,英国人用火药制造子弹对付他国,由此您悟到了什么……
