英文版哲理小故事

  THRIFT

  There is not a (no) thrifty man but becomes a rich man sooner or later. Why? Because he will not spend such money as is unnecessary. Little by little his money will accumulate. Ten to one, he is bound to make a fortune.

  I do not like such men as spend their money in a wrong way. They do not know extravagance is a bad thing. It can only make them happy for the time being. In short, thrift makes poor men rich and extravagance makes rich men poor.

  PERSEVERANCE

  Needless to say, nothing but perseverance can lead a man to the way of success. In other words, a persevering man never does his work without succeeding in it. This is indeed unchangeable truth.

  Our National Father, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, is the most ideal example. He was devoted to the revolution about forty years. He met with many failures, but he was anything but discouraged. As a result, he won. The Republic of China was born.

  The Fox and the Grapes

  One hot summer's day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch. "Just the thing to quench my thirst," quoth he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting mel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: "I am sure they are sour."

  故事内容:

  炎热的夏天里,一只狐狸在果园漫步 (One hot summer's day a Fox was strolling through an orchard),看到一串熟透的葡萄沿著藤蔓高挂在上 (till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch.)。「解渴就靠这个了。」他这麼说著 ("Just the thing to quench my thirst," quoth he)。退了几步之后,他往前又跑又跳的 (Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump),可惜没构到那串葡萄 (and just missed the bunch),往后再退了几步,一、二、三,往上一跳 (Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up),还是没有构到那串葡萄 (but with no greater success.)。他试了又试,只希望吃口诱人的葡萄 (Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel),可最后还是放弃了(but at last had to give it up),最后离开,鼻子嗅了嗅说 (and walked away with his nose in the air, saying):「葡萄太酸了 ("I am sure they are sour.")。」

  The moral is that:It is easy to despise what you cannot get.

  (要鄙视得不到的东西,可真容易呢。)

  人生多了酸的滋味,永远比连酸都没尝过的人生来的圆满。
