Master 0sifu Folktale: A mantis stopping the wheels of the chariot

One day, Zhuang Gong, King of the State of Qi, went out in a chariot to hunt.

一天,齐庄公乘车外出打猎。

 

On the way, he saw a small insect raise both its arms, trying to stop the wheels of the chariot. Zhuang Gong of Qi was curious and asked the driver: “What kind of insect is it?”

路上,他看见一只小虫举起双臂,想阻挡车轮前进。齐庄公很好奇,就问车夫:“这是什么虫子?”

 

“It is a mantis,” the driver replied promptly. “This kind of insect only knows how to advance but not retreat, blindly underrating its enemies and overrating its own abilities.”

车夫连忙回答:“这是蝗螂。这种虫子只知前进,不知后退,盲目轻敌,不自量力。”

 

Hearing the driver’s reply, Zhuang Gong smiled to himself and remained silent.

听了车夫的回答,庄公暗自发笑,默默无语。
