儿童寓言故事:我们是多么贫穷

2014-04-01    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

One day a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country so he could have his son see how poor country people were.
一天,一个富有的爸爸带着儿子做了一次乡村之旅,他想让儿子明白乡下人是多么的贫穷。

They stayed one day and one night in the farmhouse of a very humble farm. On the way back home at the end of the trip the father asked the son, "What did you think of the trip?"
他们在一个农家的寒酸的农场上呆了一天一夜。在旅程结束回家的路上,爸爸问儿子:“你觉得这次旅行怎么样?”

The son replied, "Very nice, Dad."
儿子回答:“非常好,爸爸。”

The father then asked, "Did you noticed how poor they were?"
爸爸接着问:“你有没有注意到他们是多么贫穷啊?”

The son replied, "Yes, I guess so."
儿子答道:“是的,或许是吧。”

The father then added, "And what did you learn?"
爸爸追问道:“那你都是学到了些什么?”

To this question, the son thought for a moment and answered slowly, "I learned that we have one dog in the house and they have four. We have a fountain in the garden and they have a stream that has no end.
关于这一问题,儿子想了一会儿,慢条斯理地回答道:“我学到我们家只有一只狗,而他们却有四只。我们花园里有一个喷水池,而他们却有一条没有尽头的小河。”

"We have fancy lanterns in our garden, while they have the stars. Our garden goes to the edge of our yard, but for their back yard they have the entire horizon!"
“我们花园里有色彩夺目的灯笼,而他们却有无数闪亮的星星。我们院子的尽头就是花园,而他们的后院却有开阔的视野。”

At the end of the son's reply, the rich father was speechless. His son then added: "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we really are."
儿子说完后,这个富有的爸爸无言以对。儿子还说道:“谢谢你,爸爸,让我明白了我们是多么贫穷。”

Isn't it true that all depends on the lens you use to see life?
一切在于看待问题的方式,难道不是吗?

If you have love, friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude toward life, you've got everything!
如果你拥有了爱情、朋友、家庭、健康、幽默和积极的态度,你就拥有了一切。

You can't buy any of these things.You can have all the material possessions you can imagine, provisions for the future, etc., but if you are poor of spirit, you have nothing!
这些东西是金钱买不到的。你可以拥有你想象中的任何物质财富和为将来做的储备,但假若你精神贫乏,还是一无所有。
