The wolf and the lamb(文本) 编者按:一只狼想吃掉小羊,杜撰了一个又一个理由,却都是让人啼笑皆非的理由。但是狼 还是吃掉了小羊。 当一个坏人要为自己做坏事找借口时, 他是不会在乎这个借口恰不恰当的, 我们发现这样的情况时,聪明的做法是赶快想办法脱身,而不是与他理论。 The wolf and the lamb Once upon a time a wolf was lapping at a stream. When he looked up, he saw a lamb drinking a little lower down. "There"s my supper," he thought. "I will find some excuse to catch it." Then he called out to the lamb, "How dare you muddle the water?" "No, master," said the lamb. "I cannot muddle your water because it runs down from you to me." "Well, then," said the wolf. "Why did you call me bad names this time last year?" "It was impossible," said the lamb. "I am only six months old." "I don"t care," shouted the wolf. "If it was not you, it must be your father." After that he rushed at the poor little lamb and ate it up.

He put nothing on the table except some soup in a very shallow dish. The fox could easily lap up the soup, but the stork could only wet the end of her long bill in it. When she left the meal, she was still very hungry. "I am sorry," said the fox, "the soup is not to your taste." "Please do not apologize," said the stork. "I hope you will come to my house, and dine with me soon." A few days later the fox visited the stork. He found that his food was put in a long bottle, and the mouth of the bottle was very narrow.
