英语故事 伊索寓言:黑人

The Aethiop

THE PURCHASER of a black servant was persuaded that the color of his skin arose from dirt contracted through the neglect of his former masters. On bringing him home he resorted to every means of cleaning, and subjected the man to incessant scrubbings. The servant caught a severe cold, but he never changed his color or complexion.

What’s bred in the bone will stick to the flesh.

黑人

有人买了一个黑奴,以为他的肤色是由於原来的主人的大意而为,带回家后,用许多肥皂和水想要把他洗乾净。可是黑奴肤色丝毫没有一点变化,他自己却因辛苦大病一场。

这个故事带出的启示就是:生来就有的东西始终会保留着原始的样子。
