5. To be an acress is very hard. You always must show everybody that you really can be an actress. So you always must correspond to your character. It means that for an actress it is important to get into her character , that's why she needs to combine the best qualities. Does the quotation refer only to an actress?
6. I think, it means that for the author beauty is the greatest wonder in the world. He considers that it is necessary to pay attention to the appearance as it can say a lot about the person.

3. Ambition will never tolerate failure. If you are that ambitous, if you really want to accomplish what you wish, then you will never let anything put you down and fail. That's why Failure can never depend on Ambition for refuge, protection, or help because Ambition will only kill it.

3.Only a person who failed everything tries to hide behind his ambitions, because it's the only thing he can do now.
4. Advertising goes everywhere with us, it takes our attention. We don't see it and just don't care, but  it works and  in the same time people make money on us. I totally agree with this quatation.
5. The world of cinema industry is very cruel, especially to young women who come there. They are supposed to meet a lot of difficulties, the level of rivalry is high. That's why they  should have all these qualities.
6. Oscar Wild meant to say that all things we do, all our thoughts stay on our face. This theme is greatly opened in his "Picture of Dorian Gray".
10.It can be said about politicians. They always talk a lot, they know what we want to hear, they speak with wonderfully written speech, speech written by  the professionals, but it doesn't mean that they believe in what they're saying.Their words  are empty, their minds are only  full  of selfishness and their own benefit.
Янкина А.
