一、猴子和渔夫 The Monkey and the Fishermen
Once upon a time, there lived a monkey in the woods. The monkey climbed up the tree and looked down at the river everyday.
One day, the monkey saw fishermen throw a net over the river. He watched how the fishermen caught fish.
Sometime after, the fishermen left the net and went to have lunch. Then, the monkey climbed down from the tree and went to the riverside. The monkey was planning to throw the net like the fishermen did.
The monkey was confident since he was good at imitating. Yet, the net wound around the monkey when he touched it. Tied up in the net, the monkey fell into the water.
The monkey regretted his behavior, but it was too late. "I should have learned how to use the net before touching it. After believing my prowess and showing off, I am in a bad fix." The monkey who did not behave carefully drowned in the water.
二、狐狸与鸡 the fox and the cock
One morning a fox sees a cock. He thinks,"This is my breakfast."
He comes up to the cock and says, "I know you can sing very well. Can you sing for me?'' The cock is glad. He closes his eyes and begins to sing.
The fox sees that and caches him in his mouth and carries him away.
The people in the field see the fox.They cry: "Look, look! The fox is carrying the cock away.'' The cock says to the fox: "Mr Fox, do you understand? The people say you are carrying their cock away. Tell them it is yours. Not theirs.''
The fox opens his mouth and says, "The cock is mine, not yours.'' Just then the cock runs away from the fox and flies into the tree.
