每日晨读《The farmer and his sons》

The farmer and his sons 来自小学英语盒子 00:00 02:39

A farmer had five sons. They were strong and hardworking. But they always quarreled with one another. Sometimes, they even fought.

一位农夫有五个儿子,个个都身强体健,辛勤劳动。但是他们总是互相吵架,有时候还会打起来。

The farmer wanted his sons to stop quarrelling and fighting. He wanted them to live in peace. Plain words of advice or scolding did not have much effect on these young people. The farmer always thought what to do to keep his sons united.

农夫想让儿子们不再争吵打架,想让他们和平共处。但是建议和责骂对这些年轻人都没什么效果,农夫总是在想办法让儿子们团结起来。

One day he found an answer to the problem. So he called all his sons together.

有一天他想出了一个办法,于是把儿子们都召集到一起。

He showed them a bundle of sticks and said, 'I want any of you to break these sticks without separating them from the bundle.'

他拿出一捆棍子,对他们说:'你们有谁能把这一捆棍子折断吗?'

Each of the five sons tried one by one. They used their full strength and skill. But none of them could break the sticks.

五个儿子每个人都试了试,但是他们用尽全力都没能折断整捆棍子。

Then the old man separated the sticks and gave each of them just a single stick to break. They broke the sticks easily.

然后,老人把棍子解开,给五个儿子一人一根,结果很轻松就掰断了。

The farmer said, 'A single stick by itself is weak. It is strong as long as it is tied up in a bundle. Likewise, you will be strong if you are united. You will be weak if you are divided.'

农夫说:'一根棍子容易断,但是绑成一捆就很难折断了。同样的,如果你们团结在一起就会变得更强大,但如果心不齐,就会不堪一击。'
