  1.. Second language
A mother mouse was out for a stroll with her babies when she spotted a cat crouched behind a bush. She watched the cat, and the cat watched the mice. Mother mouse barked fiercely, "Woof, woof, woof!" The cat was so terrified that it ran for it's life. Mother mouse turned to her babies and said, "Now, do you understand the value of a second language?" 一只母老鼠带着孩子出来散步,突然她看见一只猫正在灌木丛中虎视耽耽。 母老鼠向着猫叫道:“汪,汪,汪”,猫听了非常害怕,拼命跑走了。 母老鼠回过头洋洋自得的对孩子说:“现在你知道外语的重要性了吧。

  2.Trick of Stealing Watermelons
Ah Q still had the habit of stealing. In village Wee, the watermelons grown by the Zhang's were big and sweet which was known far and near. One night, Ah Q was very greedy to have some watermelon, so he invited Wang Hu to steal some. They crawled toward the watermelon field in the darkness. In the flickering candle light, they dimmly saw a watermelon keeper lying on a bamboo bed. They both were not so bold to go ahead, thus Ah Q grasped a small stone and threw it to the middle of the field. No response from the keeper, maybe he was in sleep. The two men crawled nearer. Meanwhile Ah Q touched something sticky, he put his hand to his nose, it smelt terrible. "Fuck it!", cursed Ah Q in mind. Just now Ah Q heard a light sound, it sounded like the bellows. "It is snore," Ah Q thought, a great joy came into mind. Ah Q dragged Wang Hu to the bamboo bed in stealth. It was really snore. Ah Q whispered a while to Wang Hu's ear. The two men moved smoothly and silently the bamboo bed together with the keeper to the brink of a pond nearby, especially with the shoe side of the bed facing the pond. After that they returned to the field, picked the biggest melons and filled two bags as if they were picking their own. Then they carried the bags away. About 200 or 300 meters away, Ah Q shouted to the field, "Someone stealing watermelons!" No sooner had the voice fallen than came a Pootone?the sound of something dropping into the water. Ah Q and Wang Hu giggled, going away without turning their heads. 偷瓜妙计 阿 Q 依旧偷性不改。未庄张家的西瓜又大又甜,远近闻名。有天晚上,阿 Q 嘴馋,便约王 创新三维学习法,高效学习加速度

胡一起摸黑爬到张家的西瓜地旁,摇曳的烛光中,隐约可见竹床躺着一位看瓜的伙计。二位 不敢贸然行事,于是,阿 Q 先摸了一小块石子向瓜田中央扔去,看瓜的伙计没有反应,或 许他睡着了。二人又向前爬了爬。阿 Q 的手突然摸着了一堆粘乎乎的东西,凑近鼻子一闻, 酸臭酸臭, “妈妈的! Q 禁不住在心里骂道。 ”阿 这时隐约听见轻轻的象是拉风箱的声音。 “对 了,这是鼾声”,阿 Q 心想,不由一阵欣喜,拉着王胡朝竹床爬过去想探个究竟。的的确确 是鼾声,阿 Q 对着王胡耳语一番。二人蹑手蹑脚地来到竹床边,轻轻地连人带竹床一起抬 到离瓜地不远的水塘边,将竹床紧临水塘放好,并使放鞋的一边正对水塘。二人返回瓜地, 放心大胆地如同在自家地里摘瓜一般,拣最大的摘了两大袋子,扛着袋子走了。走了约二三 百米,阿 Q 回过头来大喊一声:“有人偷瓜罗!”随后听见远处扑通一声,阿 Q 和王胡呵呵 直笑,便头也不回地去了。

  3.The Hare and the Tortoise
龟兔赛跑
A HARE one day ridiculed the short feet and slow pace of the Tortoise, who replied, laughing: "Though you be swift as the wind, I will beat you in a race." The Hare, believing her assertion to be simply impossible, assented to the proposal; and they agreed that the Fox should choose the course and fix the goal. On the day appointed for the race the two started together. The Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course. The Hare, lying down by the wayside, fell fast asleep. At last waking up, and moving as fast as he could, he saw the Tortoise had reached the goal, and was comfortably dozing after her fatigue. Slow but steady wins the race. 乌龟与兔为他们俩谁跑得快而争论不休。 于是, 他们定好了比赛的时间和地点。 比赛一开始, 兔觉得自己是天生的飞毛腿,跑得快,对比赛掉以轻心,躺在路旁睡着了。乌龟深知自己走 得慢,毫不气馁,不停地朝前奔跑。结果,乌龟超过了睡熟了的兔子,夺得了胜利的奖品。 这故事说明,奋发图强的弱者也能战胜骄傲自满的强者

  5.The Fisherman Piping
吹箫的渔夫
A FISHERMAN skilled in music took his flute and his nets to the seashore. Standing on a projecting rock, he played several tunes in the hope that the fish, attracted by his melody, would of their own accord dance into his net, which he had placed below. At last, having long waited in vain, he laid aside his flute, and casting his net into the sea, made an excellent haul of fish. When he saw them leaping about in the net upon the rock he said: "O you most perverse creatures, when I piped you would not dance, but now that I have ceased you do so merrily." 有一个会吹箫的渔夫,带着他心爱的箫和渔网来到了海边。他先站在一块突出的岩石上,吹 起箫来,心想鱼听到这美妙音乐就会自己跳到他的前面来的。他聚精会神地吹了好久,毫无 结果。他只好将箫放下,拿起网来,向水里撒去,结果捕到了许多的鱼。他将网中的鱼一条 条地扔到岸上,并对乱蹦乱跳的鱼说:“喂,你们这些不识好歹的东西!我吹箫时,你们不 跳舞,现在我不吹了,你们倒跳了起来。” 这故事适用于那些做事不择时机的人们。

took the sticks separately, one by one, and
again put them into his sons' hands, upon which they broke them easily. He then addressed them in these words: "My sons, if you are of one mind, and unite will be as this faggot, uninjured by all the to assist each other, you
attempts of your enemies; but if you are divided
among yourselves , you will be broken as easily as these sticks." 有个父亲的儿子们常常互相争斗不休。他多次语重心长地劝说他们,尽管他苦口婆心, 仍无济于事。他认为应该用事实来教育他们,便叫儿子们去拿一捆木棒来。木棒拿来后, 他先把整捆木棒交给他们,叫他们折断。儿子们一个个竭尽了全力都无法将它折断。随后 他解开了那捆木棒, 给他们每人一根。他们都毫不费力地将木棒折为两段。 这时, 父亲说: “孩子们,你们要像木棒一样,团结一致,齐心协力,就不会被敌人征服;可你们互相争 斗不休,便很容易被敌人打垮。” 这故事说明,团结就是不可征服的力量,而内讧却只能耗损自己。
