--The Secret Garden book report
After heroine Mary’s parents died of cholera in India, she was sent to her uncle Archibald in Yorkshire. Life began to change.
Mary, a spoiled and bad-tempered girl, who even didn’t know how to dress, tried to dress herself for the first time the morning she awoke. She was so lonely, that, she kept trying to find the secret garden after the servant Martha told her about it by chance. The secret garden had been locked up for ten years because her aunt died in this garden. Since then, her uncle locked it and buried the key so nobody could find the garden ever again. Mary went out everyday with great expectations of finding the garden and the key. Finally, it paid off. She found the keys and began to make the garden beautiful. Meanwhile, she helped her sickly cousin Colin find confidence. Colin began walking and soon he didn’t need his wheelchair anymore. At the end of the story, they played happily in the rose filled garden. Archibald found his son had become a handsome and healthy boy. Mary changed from a spoiled girl to a bright girl.

What I’ve learned from this story is to always keep trying. Mary tried dressing herself and she did that. She tried walking outside, so she found a beautiful natural world. She tried finding the key to the secret garden and she found that. She tried digging in the garden, and thus a dead garden became vibrant. Colin tried going out from his dark room and the magical garden amazed him. He tried standing upright and as a result he learned how to walk. After they tried, the world became different for them. Everything changed from dreary to bright. If you never try, you’ll never know what is in the secret garden. You’ll never know what will happen and what kind of wonderful things are waiting for you.

I remember my first sports meeting in high school. No one in my class entered for the 3000-meter running race. One night after evening class I was roaming around the ground track field, when suddenly, I felt like running. I never thought I could finish running 3000 meters, but the truth was that I finished the full distance. It encouraged me to enter for the 3000-meter running race. Fortunately I got a small prize at last. If you never try, you’ll never know the limitation of your ability. You’ll never know what kind of grand job you can do.
