英语故事 伊索寓言:众树与荆棘

The Pomegranate, Apple-Tree, and Bramble

THE POMEGRANATE and Apple-Tree disputed as to which was the most beautiful. When their strife was at its height, a Bramble from the neighboring hedge lifted up its voice, and said in a boastful tone: “Pray, my dear friends, in my presence at least cease from such vain disputings.”

众树荆棘

石榴树、苹果树、橄榄树相互为谁的果实最好而争吵不休。正当他们激烈争闹时,篱笆边的荆棘听到了,便说:「朋友们,我们不要再争吵。」

这个故事带出的启示就是:有些微不足道的人,在强者相互争斗中,也自不量力地极想表现一番。
