62 a heart’s ease 安心

a story is told of a king who went into his garden one morning, and found everything withered and dying.
这个故事是这样的:一个国王清晨走迸花园,发现所有的草 木已经枯萎,奄奄一息了。

he asked the oak that stood near the gate what the trouble was.
于是,他问门边的橡树究竟发生了什么事。

he found it was sick of life and determined to die because it was not tall and beautiful like the pine.
原来是它们消极 厌世、一心求死,因为橡树觉得自己不如松树般高大、秀丽:

the pine was all out of heart because it could not bear grapes, like the vine.
而松树为自己不如葡萄藤那般结满丰硕的果实而沮丧:

the vine was going to throw its life away because it could not stand erect and have as fine fruit as the peach tree.
葡萄藤则为自己无法直立,并且无法像桃树那样结出上好的果实而想结束生命
