The Crab and the Fox 螃蟹和狐狸

点击数:269 收藏本文

A crab1 once left the sea-shore and went and settled in a meadow2 some way inland, which looked very nice and green and seemed likely to be a good place to feed in. But a hungry fox came along and spied the crab and caught him. Just as he was going to be eaten up, the crab said, "This is just what I deserve, for I had no business to leave my natural home by the sea and settle here as though I belonged to the land."

 

Be content with your lot. 

 

有一次,一只螃蟹离开海边,定居在内陆的一块草地上,那里看着很美,有青青的绿草,是个养分充足的好地方。然而,一只饥饿的狐狸走过来,看见螃蟹并捉住了他。就在狐狸将要吃掉他之前,螃蟹说:“我真是活该,我没有理由要离开海边那个天然的家,像陆地栖息的动物一样,偏要到这里来定居。”

 

知足才能常乐。
