A. Choose the best answer (根据短文内容，选择最恰当的答案）
Most people cannot choose their jobs. They only have their jobs forced upon (被迫)them. This may be because they haven't enough training for any other job, or because of economic situation, or because they live in a place where there is a limited choice of jobs, or because their fathers and grandfathers have always followed a certain occupation. The Indian born of farmer parents in a village has, for example, few opportunities of becoming anything but a farmer.
But if one is lucky enough to be able to choose the job one is going to do, how should one make one's choice? One's choice clearly depends on what one wants to get out of one's job.
Some people believe that nobody can do a job well if they do not enjoy it. But this is probably true only of certain types of work. And there are those who have an ability for turning their job into something that is an enjoyable way of earning their living(挣钱生计)but who do not really do their work well. Some doctors, for example, who become rich and famous men are in fact not owning humanity (人性)which is necessary in their job, and may even not be especially skilled at their job. So are some lawyers. Perhaps many of the best doctors, lawyers, and teachers spend their lives working so hard for others that do not have time to become rich and famous. One must decide, when choosing a job, whether one wants to do a job for its own sake (为工作本身）or for the rewards (报酬）it offers.
