  英语故事:自食其果

  A self-important lion in the jungle tried to make his mastery clear to all.

  He was so confident that he paid no attention to the smaller animals and went right up to a bear. He asked the bear, "Who is the king of the jungle?" The bear replied, "Of course you are."

  Then the lion asked a tiger the same question. The tiger replied with some reluctance1, "Of course you are." And then he went to ask an elephant. But the elephant would not allow the lion to do so. He suddenly took hold of the lion with his long nose and bounced2 the lion against a tree, leaving him bleeding3 and badly shaken up.

  When the lion finally got up, he blamed the elephant and said: "Even if you couldn't answer my question, it's not necessary for you to act so rough4."

  热带丛林里的一个妄自菲薄的狮子试图使所有的动物都明白它的统治地位。

  它非常自信,对较小的动物不屑一顾,而是直接去问一只黑熊:“谁是丛林里的大王呀?” 黑熊回答说:“当然是你呀。”

  于是它又去问一个老虎同样的问题。老虎有点勉强地回答说:“当然是你呀!”然后他又去问一头大象。可是大象不买它的账,突然用它的长鼻子把狮子抓起来向一棵树扔过去,让它鲜血淋漓和浑身发抖。

  狮子终于爬起来时,它责怪大象说:“即使你回答不了我的问题,也用不着这么粗鲁嘛。”

  英语故事:阿佩莱斯和小毛驴

  Apelles meeting with the little ass1 invited him to tea that very right. The little ass was trembling with delight. He prances2 through the wood; he pesters3 all who pass: 'Apelles bores me so. He will not let me be, you know! Whenever him I see, he asks me in to tea. I'm sure he wants to paint a Pegasus from me.'

  'Oh no!' Apelles said as he happened to be near, 'I am painting the judgment4 of King Midas. I'm acquainting with you because you seem to boast the proper length of ear. So if you'll come to tea, most happy I shall be. For long-eared asses5 are not rare, but with the ears that you can show, no little or big ass either ever could compare!'

  Consumed with vanity, the fool admires himself for that which others ridicule6, and often makes a boast of that which ought to shame him most.

  阿佩莱斯遇到一只小小的毛驴,当晚就请它去喝茶。这小驴子高兴得全身颤抖,它在森林里高视阔步,和所有路过的人唠唠叨叨地说:“阿佩莱斯烦死我了,你知道,他死缠着我不放,不论什么时候遇到她,他总是叫我去喝茶,我想他一定是要按我的模样画一匹天上的飞马呢。”

  “不,哪有那么回事!”阿佩莱斯说道(他正好在旁边),“我画的是国王米达斯的审判,我认识你,是因为你似乎在吹嘘你的耳朵长度合适。所以如果你来喝茶,我高兴之至。长耳朵的驴子并不稀奇,可是你生的那副耳朵,无论大小驴子都不能和你相比!”

  蠢才妄自尊大。他自鸣得意,恰恰是受人嘲笑奚落的短处,而且常常把应该引以为奇耻大辱的事情大吹大擂。

  春天的时候,猪妈妈带着小猪噜噜,在山坡下种了一大片西瓜。到了夏天,西瓜地里结满了又圆又大的西瓜。

  有一天,太阳光火辣辣地照着大地,天啊,可热了。猪妈妈对小猪说:“噜噜,你到咱们的地里摘个大西瓜回来解解渴吧!”小猪噜噜高兴地说:“好吧!”说完就往西瓜地里跑。到了地里一看。呵,到处躺着大西瓜,水灵灵的,真惹人喜爱!噜噜挑了个大的摘了下来。它双手搂着西瓜,想抱起来放在肩上扛回家。“哟,好重呀!”噜噜试着抱了几次都没有抱起来,还累得满头大汗。 它直起身来,擦了擦脸上的汗水想休息一下,再去试试抱西瓜。突然,它看到小猴皮皮在山下边的马路上滚铁环玩呢。小猪噜噜一拍后脑勺高兴地说:“有了,我有办法了。”什么办法呢?小猪噜噜心想:铁环是圆的,可以滚动。西瓜也是圆的,不也可以滚动吗?想到这儿啊,小猪噜噜顾不上休息,把大西瓜放在地上。咕噜噜,咕噜噜地向前滚,一直把西瓜滚到家里。

  猪妈妈看到小猪噜噜把又圆又大的西瓜搬回家,夸奖噜噜是个爱动脑筋的猪娃娃!
