.It was a cold winter day in 19
  19. A small boy was walking along the street in London. His name was Tom. He was very hungry. He wanted to buy some bread, but he had no money. What could he do? When he was very young, he wanted to be a great man in the world of films. So he worked to sing and dance well. Thirty years later, the boy became one of the famous people in the world.
那是 1919 年的一个寒冷的冬天。一个小男孩正漫步在伦敦的街头。他的名字叫 汤姆。他饿极了。他想买一些面包,可是他身无分文。他该怎么办呢?当他非常 年幼的时候, 他就想当一名电影世界中的伟人。 所以他努力把歌唱好, 把舞跳好。 三十年之后,这个小男孩真地成为了电影世界中的著名人物之一。
The Fox and the Tiger(狐狸和老虎) An Archer, hunting in the woods, was so successful with his arrows that he killed many of the wild animals. This frightened the rest so much that they ran into the densest part of the bushes to hide. At last the Tiger stood up, and pretending to be very brave, told the other animals not to be afraid anymore, but to rely on his courage, and he would attack the enemy on his own. While he was talking, and lashing his tail and tearing at the ground with his claws to impress the others, an arrow came and pierced his ribs. The Tiger howled with pain. While he was trying to draw out the arrow with his teeth the Fox went up to him and asked, in surprise, whoever had the strength and courage to wound such a brave and mighty beast as the Tiger? "Nay," said the Tiger, "I misjudged my enemy. It was that unbeatable man over there!" MORAL: Knowledge is power. 狐狸和老虎 一个射手正在森林里打猎。他的箭法好极了,射死了许多野兽。这可大大地吓坏了余下的动 物,它们都跑到最茂盛的灌木丛中躲藏起来。最后,老虎站了起来,装着非常勇敢的样子叫 其余的动物相信它的勇敢,不必再害怕。它将独个儿向敌人进攻。它一边说着,一边甩动着 它的尾巴,并用它的爪子刨着地上的泥土,想使别人更信任它。就在这时,一枝箭飞来,刺 穿了他的肋骨,老虎顿时痛得吼叫起来。 正当它尽力用牙齿拔出身上的箭时,狐狸走上前来吃惊地问道:“谁能有这样的力气和胆量 来伤害象老虎这样勇敢而强有力的野兽呢?” “不,”老虎说,“我错误地判断了我的敌人,是那边那个不可战胜的人打败了我。”

The Old Cat An old woman had a cat. The cat was very old; she could not run quickly, and she could not bite, because she was so old. One day the old cat saw a mouse; she jumped and caught the mouse. But she could not bite it; so the mouse got out of her mouth and ran away, because the cat could not bite it.
Then the old woman became very angry because the cat had not killed the mouse. She began to hit the cat. The cat said, "Do not hit your old servant. I have worked for you for many years, and I would work for you still, but I am too old. Do not be unkind to the old, but remember what good work the old did when they were young."
【译文】 老猫 一位老妇有只猫,这只猫很老,它跑不快了,也咬不了东西,因为它年纪太大了。一天,老 猫发现一只老鼠,它跳过去抓这只老鼠,然而,它咬不住这只老鼠。因此,老鼠从它的嘴边 溜掉了,因为老猫咬不了它。
于是,老妇很生气,因为老猫没有把老鼠咬死。她开始打这只猫,猫说:“不要 打你的老仆人,我已经为你服务了很多年,而且还愿意为你效劳,但是,我实在 太老了,对年纪大的不要这么无情,要记住老年人在年青时所做过的有益的事 情。”
The Goat and the Goatherd 山羊与牧羊人
A GOATHERD had sought to bring back a stray goat to his flock. He whistled and sounded his horn in vain; the straggler paid no attention to the summons. At last the Goatherd threw a stone, and breaking its horn, begged the Goat not to tell his master. The Goat replied, "Why, you silly fellow, the horn will speak though I be silent."
Do not attempt to hide things which cannot be hid. 很多山羊被牧羊人赶到羊圈里。有一只山羊不知在吃什么好东西,单独落在后面。牧羊 人拿起一块石头扔 了过去,正巧打断了山羊的一只角。牧羊人吓得请求山羊不要告诉主人, 山羊说:“即使我不说,又怎能 隐瞒下去呢?我的角已断了,这是十分明显的事实。” 这故事说明,明显的罪状是无法隐瞒的。
The Ass and the Grasshopper 驴子与蚱蜢

They replied, "The dew." The Ass resolved that he would live only upon dew, and in a short time died of hunger.
驴子听见蚱蜢唱歌,被美妙动听的歌声所打动,自己也想能发出同样悦耳动听的声音,便 羡慕地问他们 吃些什么,才能发出如此美妙的声音来。蚱蜢答道:“吃露水。”驴子便也只吃露水,没多久就饿死了。 这个故事告诉人们不要企望非份之物。
