The Traveler and His Dog

旅行者與他的狗

 

A traveler about to set out on a journey saw his dog stand at the door stretching himself. He asked him sharply: "Why do you stand there gaping? Everything is ready but you, so come with me instantly." The dog, wagging his tail, replied: "O, master! I am quite ready; it is you for whom I am waiting."

 

有一位旅行者在即將出發上路時,看見他的狗站在門邊伸懶腰。他就大聲地問狗:「你為什麼站在那堨捶欠?一切都已經準備妥當,就剩你了,趕快跟我走!」狗搖搖尾巴,回答說:「喔!主人!我早就預備好了,是你在讓我等。」

 

 

The loiterer often blames delay on his more active friend.

閒散的人,常將他們的耽擱,歸咎於比他主動積極的朋友身上。
