贫穷 vs 富有

更新时间:2010-07-06    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

One day a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country so he could have his son see how poor country people were.

They stayed one day and one night in the farmhouse of a very humble farm. On the way back home at the end of the trip the father asked the son, "What did you think of the trip?"

The son replied, "Very nice, Dad."

The father then asked, "Did you noticed how poor they were?"

The son replied, "Yes, I guess so."

The father then added, "And what did you learn?"

To this question, the son thought for a moment and answered slowly, "I learned that we have one dog in the house and they have four. We have a fountain in the garden and they have a stream that has no end.

"We have fancy lanterns in our garden, while they have the stars. Our garden goes to the edge of our yard, but for their back yard they have the entire horizon!"

At the end of the son's reply, the rich father was speechless. His son then added: "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we really are."

Isn't it true that all depends on the lens you use to see life?

If you have love, friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude toward life, you've got everything! You can't buy any of these things. You can have all the material possessions you can imagine, provisions for the future, etc., but if you are poor of spirit, you have nothing!

 

一天,一个富有的顾家男人带着儿子做了一次乡村之旅,他想让儿子了解乡下人是多么的贫穷。

他们在一家非常粗陋的农场的农舍中呆了一天一夜。在旅程结束回家的路上,父亲问儿子:“你觉得这次旅行怎么样?”

儿子回答:“非常之好,爸爸。”

父亲接着问:“你有没有注意到他们是多么贫穷啊?”

儿子答道:“是的,大概吧。”

爸爸又问道:“那你认识到了些什么?”

关于这一问题,儿子想了一会儿,慢条斯理地回答道:“我认识到——我们家里只有一只狗,而他们却有四只。我们在花园里有一个喷水池,而他们却有一条无穷尽的河流。”

“我们花园里有装饰漂亮的灯笼,而他们却拥有满天星星。我们家院子的尽头就是花园,而他们家的后院却有一望无际的空旷视野。”

在儿子回答完以后,那个富有的父亲无言以对。然后,儿子又说道:“谢谢你,爸爸,让我明白了我们其实是多么贫穷。”

一切在于你看待人生的方式,你觉得呢?

如果你拥有了爱情、朋友、家庭、健康、幽默和对人生积极的态度,你就拥有了一切。这些东西是金钱买不到的。你可以拥有你能够想象到的任何物质财富,你也可以为将来做准备工作,等等,但假若你在精神方面贫乏,你还是一无所有!
