狗和他的影子The Dog and His Shadow
It happened that a dog had some meat that he wanted to eat at home. On his way home he met a river. As he looked down, he saw his shadow in the water. "Just look!"said he to himself. "That dog down there has some meat, too. If I could get it away from him, I would really eat well tonight!"With this thought, he made a snap at the other dog's meat. And as he did, his own meat fell into the water. So then he had nothing at all. Then he saw that the other dog had lost his meat, too. "That is as it should be!?thought he. "For I saw him trying to take my meat away from me."By wanting to have everything, he has lost everything he had!
碰巧狗有一些肉，他想回到家后再吃。回家的路上，他遇到了一条河。当他往河里看时，在水里他看到了他的影子。 “看啊！”他对自己说，“下面的那只狗也有一些肉。如果我能从他那里把肉弄过来，那我今晚就可以美餐一顿了！” 带着这个想法，他朝另一只狗的肉扑去。当他这么做时，他自己的肉掉进了水里。所以他就什么都没有了。 然后，他看到另一只狗的肉也没了。“活该！”他想，“因为我看到他想从我这里抢走我的肉。” 什么都想要，却失去了原来所拥有的！
