亡羊补牢

战国时代,楚国有一个大臣,名叫庄辛,有一天对楚襄王说:“你在宫里面的时候,左边是州侯,右边是夏侯;出去的时候,鄢陵君和寿跟君又总是随看你。你和这四个人专门讲究奢侈淫乐,不管国家大事,郢(楚都,在今湖北省江陵县北)一定要危险啦!”

襄王听了,很不高与,气骂道:“你老糊涂了吗?故意说这些险恶的话惑乱人心吗?”
庄辛不慌不忙的回答说:“我实在感觉事情一定要到这个地步的,不敢故意说楚国有什么不幸。如果你一直宠信这个人,楚国一定要灭亡的。你既然不信我的话,请允许我到赵国躲一躲,看事情究竟会怎样。”

庄辛到赵国才住了五个月,秦国果然派兵侵楚,襄王被迫流亡到阳城(今河南息县西北)。这才觉得庄辛的话不错,赶紧派人把庄辛找回来,问他有什么办法;庄辛很诚恳地说:“我听说过,看见兔子牙想起猎犬,这还不晚;羊跑掉了才补羊圈,也还不迟。……”

是一则很有意义的故事,只知道享乐,不知道如何做事,其结果必然是遭到悲惨的失败无疑。

亡羊补牢”这句成语,便是根据上面约两句话而来的,表达处理事情发生错误以后,如果赶紧去挽救,还不为迟的意思。例如一个事业家,因估计事情的发展犯了错误,轻举冒进,陷入失败的境地。但他并不气馁,耐心地将事情再想了一遍,从这次的错误中吸取教训,认为“亡羊补牢”,从头做起,还不算晚呢!

It is not too late to mend the fold even after some sheep have been lost

A man who raised sheep once noticed there was a hole in the walls of his sheepfold. But he neglected to repair it. A few days later, several sheep were missing. His friend advised him: “It is not too late to mend the sheepfold.”

“Wang Yang Bu Lao” or “Mending the sheepfold after the sheep have been stolen” advises us that even though we have suffer a loss, it is never too late to take steps to prevent further losses.
