​Lesson 24

神射手與獅子

The archer and the lion

從前,有一個神射手到山裡去尋找獵物,森林裡的野獸一見到他,全都逃得無影無蹤,只有高傲的獅子依然待在原地,向他發出挑戰。然而,射手朝獅子射出一箭,說:“這只是給你報個信,你等著吧,看看我怎麽收拾你。”獅子感覺到箭傷的疼痛後,快速逃走了。一隻在旁觀看的狐狸對獅子說:“別做懦夫呀,為什麽你不待在原地,展示一下你的鬥志呢?”可是獅子卻回答說:“你可不能讓我冒死呀,顯示鬥志的又不是你。為什麼要跑,他射過來的一支箭都這麽厲害,他本人肯定也不是一個好對付的傢伙。”

 

【神射手和獅子的故事寓意】

 

  神射手和獅子這篇伊索寓言故事是說,要善於借助外物去攻擊那些不便直接攻擊的強大敵人,要對那些從遠處就具殺傷力的人敬而遠之。

An Archer went up into the hills to get some sport with his bow, and all the animals fled at the sight of him except for the Lion who stayed behind and challenged him to fight. But he shot an arrow at the Lion and hit him, and said,“There, you see what my messenger can do, just you wait a moment and I’ll tackle you myself.”The Lion, however, when he felt the sting of the arrow, ran away as fast as his legs could carry him. A fox, who had seen it all happen, said to the Lion“Come, don’t be a coward. Why don’t you stay and show fight?’But the Lion replied,“You won’t get me to stay. when he sends a messenger like that before him, he must himself be a terrible fellow to deal with.”
