Four Seasons of a Tree

There was a man.He had four sons.He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things to go and look at a pear tree that was far away.

The first son went in the winter ,the second in the spring the third in summer ,the youngest son in fall. when they had all gone and come back ,he called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly ,bent and weak .the second son said no-it was covered with green buds and full of promise. the third son said it was laden with blossoms and they smelt so sweet and looked so besutiful.the last son disgreed with all of them ,he said it was ripe and droop with fruit ,full of life and fulfilmen.

The man then said to his sons that they were all right,because they each had seen but only one season in the tree's life.he told them that they cannot judge a tree or a person,by only one season,and that the essence of who they are--the pleasure, the joy and love that come from that life --can only be measured at the end , when all the seasons are up .

 if you give up when it is winter ,you will miss the promise of your spring,the beauty of your summer ,the fulfilment of your fall .don' let the pain of one season destory the joy of all the rest.

从前,一个父亲有4个儿子。他希望儿子们能学会凡事勿匆下结论,于是轮番派遣他们到很远的地方去寻一棵梨树。


大儿子是冬天去的,二儿子春天启程,老三去时已是炎热的夏季,老么于金秋时节踏上了征程。


待他们全都寻树归来以后,父亲把他们叫到一起,听他们各自描述自己的所见。


大儿子数落说大树枝弯干斜,很难看。二儿子连忙否认,说树上发满嫩绿的新芽,生机盎然。


老三不同意了,树上明明开满鲜花,吐露芬芳,漂亮极了。


他们的说法实在让老么哑然,枝头上坠满的难道不是累累果实,在彰显生机与收获吗?


父亲解释说,儿子们的说法都没错,因为他们看到的是大树一年四个季节里的不同情景。


他告诉儿子们说,不能以一季来判断树,更不能以一时来判断人,因为人之本质——源自他们喜、乐、爱的根本——只有在其生之了结时,才可盖棺论定。


倘若你在冬季就已放弃,那无疑会错过春季的生机、夏季的美丽和秋季的收益。勿为一季的痛苦而破坏了所有的欢乐。
