吹笛子的漁夫
THE FISHERMAN PIPING

有一天,一個會吹長笛的漁夫帶著笛子和漁網來到海邊,他站在一塊突出海面的岩石上,開始吹奏曲子,希望用笛聲引誘魚兒跳出海面。漁夫彈奏了一會兒,沒有一條魚出來。最後,他把長笛放到一邊,撒網入海,卻撈起滿網的魚。當漁夫把網拖上岸後,看見魚兒在岸邊不停地跳躍,他便說:“你們這些淘氣鬼!我吹笛子時,你們不肯跳;現在我不吹了,你們卻在這裡活蹦亂跳!”

【吹笛子的漁夫的故事寓意】

  吹笛子的漁夫這篇寓言故事告訴了我們:現實生活中,並不是每個人都像漁夫那樣聰明。如果他一直在那裡吹笛子,這當然是他所擅長的,願望也是美好的,但是,他本來是想要抓魚的,魚不入網,不光是會很鬱悶,甚至可能餓死;漁夫還是可愛的,他自始至終都帶著強烈的主觀願望來理解他所看到的世界,把魚的掙扎看作是跳舞。

THE FISHERMAN PIPING
  A Fisherman who could play the flute went down one day to the sea-shore with his nets and his flute; and, taking his stand on a projecting rock, began to play a tune, thinking that the music would bring the fish jumping out of the sea. He went on playing for some time, but not a fish appeared: so at last he threw down his fl ute and cast his net into the sea, and made a great haul of fi sh. When they were landed and he saw them leaping about on the shore, he cried,“You rascals! you wouldn’t dance when I piped: but now I’ve stopped,you can do nothing else!”
