GUESS THE IDIOM
No.20 High School 小 Xinyu
In the Spring and Autumn Period, Duke Huan of Qi led an army to attack a small state in the north. They went in spring when green grass covered the ground. But when they came back it was winter. Everywhere was white with snow and the wind was howling. The troops lost their way. While everybody was worried, Guan Zhong, the Duke’s chief minister, suggested: “ An old horse may know the way.” So the Duke ordered several old horses to be selected to lead the army. Finally, they found the way back home.
This idiom refers to the value of experience.
answer
An Old Horse Knows the Way
老马识途
One autumn, the rivers flooded, leaving a vast expanse of water everywhere. Seeing this, the god of the rivers was filled with pride at his vast domain. He then journeyed to the Northern Sea. When he saw the mighty ocean stretching to the horizon, he realized how foolish he actually was, and sighed with disappointment.
This idiom originally meant feeling one’s own insignificance upon seeing another’s might. Now it is able to do nothing but sigh in the face of a huge task.
answer Gazing at the Ocean and Sighing 望洋兴叹
Thanks a lot!
