英语故事 伊索寓言:山震

The Mountains in Labour

One day the Countrymen noticed that the Mountains were in labour; smoke came out of their summits, the earth was quaking at their feet, trees were crashing, and huge rocks were tumbling. They felt sure that something horrible was going to happen. They all gathered together in one place to see what terrible thing this could be. They waited and they waited, but nothing came. At last there was a still more violent earthquake, and a huge gap appeared in the side of the Mountains. They all fell down upon their knees and waited. At last, and at last, a teeny, tiny mouse poked its little head and bristles out of the gap and came running down towards them, and ever after they used to say:

“Much outcry, little outcome.”

山震

有一次,一座大山发生了大震动,震动发出的声音就像大声的呻吟和喧闹。许多人云集在山下观看,不知发生了甚么事。当他们焦急地聚集在那里,担心看到甚么不祥之兆时,仅看见从山里跑出一只老鼠。

这个故事带出的启示就是:庸人多自忧。
