伊索寓言69:The Dog in the Manger 牛槽里的狗

时间:2016-07-24 13:57:03   来源:速学网

A Dog asleep in a manger filled with hay, was awakened by the Cattle, which came in tired and hungry from working in the field. But the Dog would not let them get near the manger, and snarled and snapped as if it were filled with the best of meat and bones, all for himself.

一只狗睡在堆满了干草的牛槽里,牛被惊醒了,牛在外干活后又累又饿的。但是狗不让他们靠近牛槽附近,咆哮地叫着,就好像牛槽里堆满了最好的肉和骨头。

The Cattle looked at the Dog in disgust. "How selfish he is!" said one. "He cannot eat the hay and yet he will not let us eat it who are so hungry for it!"

这些牛厌恶地看着这只狗。“他多么自私啊!”另一个牛说道。“他不能吃干草,但他也不会让我们吃的,我们是如此渴望可以吃干草!”

Now the farmer came in. When he saw how the Dog was acting, he seized a stick and drove him out of the stable with many a blow for his selfish behavior.

现在农民走了进来。当他看到狗是如何表演的,抓起了一根棍子,把他从牛槽中赶了出去,从而打击他自私的行为。

Do not grudge others what you cannot enjoy yourself.

自己不能享受的请不要怨恨别人(寓意:不要占着茅坑不拉屎)。
