伊索寓言:田鼠与家鼠

2006-06-27 11:30

  The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse

  Now you must know that a Town Mouse once upon a time went on a visit to his cousin in the country. He was rough and ready, this cousin, but he loved his town friend and made him heartily welcome. Beans and bacon, cheese and bread, were all he had to offer, but he offered them freely. The Town Mouse rather turned up his long nose at this country fare, and said: “I cannot understand, Cousin, how you can put up with such poor food as this, but of course you cannot expect anything better in the country; come you with me and I will show you how to live. When you have been in town a week you will wonder how you could ever have stood a country life.” No sooner said than done: the two mice set off for the town and arrived at the Town Mouse's residence late at night. “You will want some refreshment after our long journey,” said the polite Town Mouse, and took his friend into the grand dining-room. There they found the remains of a fine feast, and soon the two mice were eating up jellies and cakes and all that was nice. Suddenly they heard growling and barking. “What is that?” said the Country Mouse. “It is only the dogs of the house,” answered the other. “Only!” said the Country Mouse. “I do not like that music at my dinner.” Just at that moment the door flew open, in came two huge mastiffs, and the two mice had to scamper down and run off. “Good-bye, Cousin,” said the Country Mouse, “What! going so soon?” said the other. “Yes,” he replied;

  Better beans and bacon in peace than cakes and ale in fear.

  田鼠与家鼠

  田鼠与家鼠是好朋友,家鼠应田鼠所约,去乡下赴宴。他一边吃着大麦与谷子,一边对田鼠说:「朋友,你知道,你这是过着蚂蚁一般的生活,我那里有很多好东西,去与我一起享受吧!」田鼠跟随家鼠来到城里,家鼠给田鼠看豆子和谷子,还有红枣、干酪、蜂蜜、果子。田鼠看得目瞪口呆,大为惊讶,称讚不已,并悲歎自己的命运。他们正要开始吃,有人打开了门,胆小的家鼠一听声响,害怕得赶紧钻进了鼠洞。当家鼠再想拿干酪时,有人又进屋里拿甚么东西。他一见到有人,立刻又钻回了洞里。这时,田鼠也顾不上饥饿,颤颤惊惊地对家鼠说:「朋友,再见吧!你自己尽情地去吃,担惊受怕地享受这些好吃的东西吧。可怜的我还是去啃那些大麦和谷子,平平安安地去过你看不起的普通生活。」

  这个故事带出的启示就是:人们宁愿过简单平稳的生活,而不愿享受那充满恐怖的欢乐生活。
