The Flies and the Honey-Pot 苍蝇与蜜

来源:www.en369.cn  作者:admin  时间:2009-09-11  

A NUMBER of Flies were attracted to a jar of honey which had
been overturned in a housekeeper's room, and placing their feet in
it, ate greedily. Their feet, however, became so smeared with the
honey that they could not use their wings, nor release themselves,
and were suffocated. Just as they were expiring, they exclaimed,
"O foolish creatures that we are, for the sake of a little pleasure we
have destroyed ourselves."

 

Pleasure bought with pains, hurts.


房里有蜜漏流出来,许多苍蝇便飞去饱餐起来。蜂蜜太甜美了,他们舍不得走。然而, 就在这时他们的脚被蜜粘住,再也飞不起来了。他们后悔不已,嗡嗡乱叫:“我们真不幸, 因贪图一时的享受而丧了命。”

 

对于许多人来说,贪婪是许多灾祸的根源。
