  A dove took pity on him. She threw a small branch into the river. The ant seized the bough, and swam back to the shore.

  A few days later, the ant saw a hunter aiming a gun at the dove. He bit the man in the foot sharply.The man missed the shot, and the dove's life was saved. The dove felt very grateful. She made good friends with the ant.

  鸽子和蚂蚁

  一只蚂蚁到河边饮水,却不幸掉入河中。

  一只鸽子看见,扔下一段树枝,将他救起。

  过了不久,蚂蚁看见猎人正在拿枪瞄准鸽子,就狠狠地朝他脚上咬了一口,没让他打中。鸽子非常感激蚂蚁。从此,他们成了好朋友。

  寓意: 有些朋友也许平时看似微不足道,但却有可能在我们身处困境的时候提供巨大的帮助

  Making His Mark

  A man from the state of Chu was taking a boat across a river when he dropped his sword into the water carelessly. Immediately he made a mark on the side of the boat where the sword dropped, hoping to find it later. When the boat stopped moving, he went into the water to search for his sword at the place where he had marked the boat. As we know, the boat had moved but the sword had not. Isn’t this a very foolish way to look for a sword?

  【译文】

  刻舟求剑

  楚国有个人坐船渡江时,他不小心把自己的一把宝剑掉落江中。他马上掏出一把小刀,在宝剑落水的船舷上刻上一个记号。船靠岸后,那楚人立即从船上刻记号的地方跳下水去捞取掉落的宝剑。他怎么找得到宝剑呢?船继续行驶,而宝剑却不会再移动。像他这样去找剑,真是太愚蠢可笑了。

  Draw a Snake and Add Feet to It

  Long long ago, several people had a jar of wine among them and all of them wanted to drink it by himself. So they set a rule that every one would draw a snake on the ground and the man who finished first would have the wine. One man finished his snake very soon and he was about to drink the wine when he saw the others were still busy drawing, so he decided to draw the feet to the snake. However, before he could finish the feet, another man finished and grabbed the jar from him, saying, "Who has ever seen a snake with feet?”

  The story of "Draw a snake and add feet to It.” tells us going too far is as bad as not going far enough.

  【译文】

  画蛇添足

  古时几个人分一壶酒。他们都想独自喝完那壶酒,所以就定了一个规矩:每人在地上画一条蛇,谁画得最快,这壶酒就归谁。有一个人很快就把蛇画好了。他正打算喝这壶酒时,看见别人都还在忙着画,就决定给蛇再画上几只脚。结果,他的蛇脚还没加完,另一个人已经把蛇画好了。那人一下把酒壶夺了过去,说:“有谁见过长脚的蛇?”。

  这个故事告诉我们这样的道理:做得过分和做得不够都是不对的
