Master 0sifu Fable 寓言:Supplementing each other

In the past, a man bragged about his bow: “There is no bow better than mine. It doesn’t need any arrow!”

从前,有个人自夸他的弓,说:“我的弓嘛,没有比这更好的了,好得不需要用什么箭的!”

 

Another man bragged about his arrow: “There is no arrow better than mine. It doesn’t need any bow!”

也有人在自夸他的箭,说:“我的箭,没有比这更好的了,好得用不着什么弓了!”

 

At that time, a man good at archery happened to pass by and heard their dialogue. He said: “You are both wrong. One cannot shoot an arrow without a bow; and without an arrow, how can one hit the target?”

这时候,恰好有一个会射箭的人从他们身边走过,听到他们的这段对话,就说:“你们两人的话都不对。没有弓,发不出箭;没有箭,怎么能射中目标呢?”

 

Thereupon, the man good at archery asked them to take out their bow and arrow. Then he showed them how to shoot at the target with a bow and an arrow.

说完后,会射箭的人还叫他们把弓和箭都拿出来,射箭给他们看。

 

Now they understood: A bow won’t do without an arrow; nor an arrow without a bow. They complement each other.

他们这才明白:弓不能离开箭,箭也离不开弓,两者相辅相成。
