​Lesson 22

遇難者與海

The man and the sea

一個遇上海難的人經過一番風浪裡的掙扎,終於被沖上岸,他筋疲力盡地躺在沙灘上睡著了。不一會兒,當他醒過來後,便開始指責大海總以平靜、溫和的外表引誘人們,然而,就在人們上當受騙之後,大海就變得兇暴和殘忍,最終致使船和船上的人同歸於盡。這時,大海以女人的形象出現了,並且對他說:“喂,朋友,你別責怪我,應該責怪風!我本是平靜的,但是只要風猛然刮過來,就會掀起驚濤駭浪,使我變得殘暴。這並不是我的本性。”

 

【遇難者與海的故事寓意】

 

  遇難者與海的這篇伊索寓言告訴了我們,我們在指責和批評教育別人的時候,首先要找到事情的根源,不要盲目的去指責別人,包括我們做事情的時候也是一樣,遇見問題都要找根源,不能蒙騙過關。

A Shipwrecked Man cast up on the beach fell asleep after he struggled with the waves When he woke up,he bitterly reproached the Sea for its treachery in enticing men with its smooth and smiling surface,and then,when they were well embarked,turning in fury upon them and sending both ship and sailors to destruction The Sea arose in the form of a woman,and replied,“Lay not the blame on me,O sailor, but on the winds By nature I am as calm and safe asthelanditself:but the Winds fall upon me with their gusts and gales,and lash me into a fury that is not natural to me.”
