  The fox and the grapes

  狐狸和葡萄

  One hot summer day a fox was walking through an orchard. He stopped before a bunch of grapes. They were ripe and juicy.

  一个炎热的夏日,狐狸走过一个果园,他停在一大串熟透而多汁的葡萄前。

  "I’m just feeling thirsty," he thought. So he backed up a few paces, got a running start, jumped up, but could not reach the grapes.

  狐狸想:“我正口渴呢。”于是他后退了几步,向前一冲,跳起来,却无法够到葡萄。

  He walked back. One, two, three, he jumped up again, but still, he missed the grapes.

  狐狸后退又试。一次,两次,三次,但是都没有得到葡萄。

  The fox tried again and again, but never succeeded. At last he decided to give it up.

  狐狸试了一次又一次,都没有成功。最后,他决定放弃。

  He walked away with his nose in the air, and said“I am sure they are sour.

  ”他昂起头,边走边说:“葡萄还没有成熟,我敢肯定它是酸的。”

  狼和狗

  The Wolf and the Dog

  There is a wolf. He is very hungry and has no strength to find food. As he lies under a large tree, a dog sees him. The dog sees the wolf is so thin and hungry, and he feels sorry for him and says, “You are so terrible! Are you hungry?”

  “Yes,” says the wolf, “I’m hungry because you are guarding the sheep. Now I am so weak that I can’t find food. I think I will do.”

  “Why not help me?” Asks the dog, “I work regularly and I eat regularly. You could do the same. You can help me guard the sleep. In that way, I will not worry about your stealing the sleep, and you will not worry about going hungry. It’s good for us.

  The wolf thinks it over and thinks the dog is right. So they walk to the dog’s house. As they are walking, the wolf sees that only the hair of the dog’s neck is very thin. He is curious about this. So he asks the dog about it.

  “Oh, don’t worry about that,” says the dog, “It’s the place where the collar ties on the neck. My master chains me up at night,”

  “Chained up!” shouts the wolf, “Do you mean that you are chained up at night? If I come to live with you, will I be chained up at night, too?”

  “That’s night,” says the dog, “But, you’ll get used to it.”

  “But, if I am chained up, I won’t be free.” After saying this, the wolf turns round and runs away.

  The dog shouts, “Wait! Come back! I’m not free, but I’m healthy. I have good food, and a warm place to sleep. I like enjoying life. In fact, I’m freer than you are.”

  狼和狗

  有一只狼,他非常饿,而且饿得没有力气去找吃的了。当他躺在一棵大树下时,一只狗看见了他。看到狼又饿又瘦,狗挺可怜他的:“你看上去真可怕。你很饿啊?“

  “是的。”狼说,“我饿是因为你和你的伙伴看守着羊群。现在我弱得没法去找食物。我想我就快要死了。”

  “为什么不帮我呢?”狗说,“我们按时工作,准时吃饭。你也行的。你可以帮我看羊群。那样我就不用担心你会来偷羊,你也不用担心挨饿了。这对我们都有好处。”

  狼考虑了一下,觉得狗说的对,他们就一起朝狗的屋子走去了。正走着,狼看见口脖子上的毛很少。他觉得好奇,就问狗怎么回事。

  “啊,别担心,”狗说,“这是系狗项圈的地方,晚上主人会把我拴起来。”

  “拴起来?”狼叫起来,“你是说晚上你会拴起来?如果我去和你住,晚上也会被拴起来?”

  “没错,”狗说,“但是你会习惯的。”

  “但是,如果被拴起来,我就不自由了。”说完,狼转身跑了。

  狗大声喊道:“等等!回来!我是不自由,可是我很健康,我有好的食物,有个温暖的地方睡觉。你太喜欢享受生活了。我其实比你还自由些。”

  雕像

  Once there lived a man among the hills, who possessed a statue wrought by an ancient master,at lay at his door face downward and he was not mindful of it.

  从前,一个住在山里的人家有一座雕像,是古代的一位大师雕刻的。雕像脸朝下倒在门前,他根本没在意。

  One day there passed by his house a man from the city, a man of knowledge, and seeing thestatue he inquired of the owner if he would sell it.

  一天,从城里来了一位学识渊博的人,在经过他家门前时,看见了雕像,便问主人愿不愿意将它卖掉。

  The owner laughed and said, "and pray who would want to buy that dull and dirty stone?"

  主人笑着说:“请问是谁要买这块又脏又硬的石头呀?"

  The man from the city said, "I will give you this piece of silver for it." And the other man wasastonished and delighted.

  城里人说:“我愿意给你一块银元买下它。“

  The statue was removed to the city, upon the back of an elephant.

  山里人惊讶之余,不禁喜出望外

  And after many months the man from the hills visited the city, and as he walked the streets hesaw a crowd before a shop, and a man with a loud voice was crying, "

  雕像被一头大象背到了城里。几个月后,山里人迸城,当他在大街上闲逛时,看见一群入围在一个小店前。有一个人大声吆喝道:

  Come in and behold the most beautiful, the most wonderful statue in all the world. Only twosilver pieces to look upon this most marvelous work of a master. "

  “进来吧,请进来欣赏全世界最漂亮、最神奇的雕像。只需花两块银元,就可以参观大师手下最不可思议的杰作。”

  There upon the man from the hills paid two silver pieces and entered the shop to see thestatue that he himself had sold for one piece of silver.

  于是,山里人付了两块银元进店里参观,发现这个雕像正是他以一块银元卖掉的那个。
