Master Osifu Fable 寓言:The Cock and the Jewel

A COCK, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a precious stone and exclaimed: “If your owner had found thee(you), and not I, he would have taken thee(you) up, and have set thee in thy first estate; but I have found thee(you) for no purpose. I would rather have one barleycorn than all the jewels in the world.”

一只公鸡在田野里为自己和母鸡们寻找食物。他发现了一块宝玉,便对宝玉说:“若不是我,而是你的主人找到了你,他会非常珍惜地把你捡起来;但我发现了你却毫无用处。我与其得到世界上一切宝玉,倒不如得到一颗麦子好。”

 

故事告诉我们:自己需要的东西才是真正珍贵的。
