英语故事 伊索寓言:老狮子与狐狸

The Lion, the Fox and the Beasts

The Lion once gave out that he was sick unto death and summoned the animals to come and hear his last Will and Testament. So the Goat came to the Lion’s cave, and stopped there listening for a long time. Then a Sheep went in, and before she came out a Calf came up to receive the last wishes of the Lord of the Beasts. But soon the Lion seemed to recover, and came to the mouth of his cave, and saw the Fox, who had been waiting outside for some time. “Why do you not come to pay your respects to me?” said the Lion to the Fox. “I beg your Majesty’s pardon,” said the Fox, “but I noticed the track of the animals that have already come to you; and while I see many hoof-marks going in, I see none coming out. Till the animals that have entered your cave come out again I prefer to remain in the open air.”

It is easier to get into the enemy’s toils than out again.

老狮子与狐狸

有一头年老的狮子,已不能凭借力量去抢夺食物了,心想只能用智取的办法才能获得更多的食物。於是,他钻进一个山洞里,躺在地上假装生病,等其他小动物走过来窥探,就把他们抓住吃了。这样,不少的动物都被狮子吃掉了。狐狸识破了狮子的诡计,远远地站在洞外,问狮子身体现在如何。狮子回答说:「很不好。」反问狐狸为甚么不进洞里来。狐狸说道:「如果我没发现只有进去的脚印,没有一个出来的脚印,我也许会进洞去。」

这个故事带出的启示就是:聪明的人常常能审时度势,根据迹象预见到危险,避免不幸。
