英语小故事一:A PIGEON(鸽子)

A pigeon, oppressed by excessive thirst, saw a goblet of water painted on a signboard. Not supposing it to be only a picture, she flew towards it with a loud whir and unwittingly dashed against the signboard, jarring herself terribly. Having broken her wings by the blow, she fell to the ground, and was caught by one of the bystanders.

Moral:Zeal should not outrun discretion.



英语小故事二:The Raven and the Swan(乌鸦和天鹅)

A raven saw a Swan and desired to secure for himself the same beautiful plumage. Supposing that the Swan’s splendid white color arose from his washing in the water in which he swam, the Raven left the altars in the neighborhood where he picked up his living, and took up residence in the lakes and pools. But cleansing his feathers as often as he would, he could not change their color, while through want of food he perished.

Moral:Change of habit cannot alter Nature.

一只乌鸦看到了一只天鹅,想要得到同样美丽的羽毛。假如天鹅的美丽的白色是由于它在水里游泳时洗过澡而产生的,那么乌鸦就离开它生活的地方,到湖里和水潭里去住下来。但是,尽管他经常清洗自己的羽毛,却无法改变它们的颜色,而由于缺乏食物,他就死了。 寓意:人的本性不会随着生活方式的改变而改变。

英语小故事三:The Bat and the Weasels(蝙蝠与黄鼠狼)

Abat who fell upon the ground and was caught by a Weasel pleaded to be spared his life. The Weasel refused, saying that he was by nature the enemy of all birds. The Bat assured him that he was not a bird, but a mouse, and thus was set free. Shortly afterwards the Bat again fell to the ground and was caught by another Weasel, whom he likewise entreated not to eat him. The Weasel said that he had a special hostility to mice. The Bat assured him that he was not a mouse, but a bat, and thus a second time escaped.

Moral:It is wise to turn circumstances to good account.



英语小故事四:The Ass and the Grasshopper(驴子与蚱蜢)

An ass having heard some Grasshoppers chirping, was highly enchanted; and, desiring to possess the same charms of melody, demanded what sort of food they lived on to give them such beautiful voices. They replied, “The dew.” The Ass resolved that he would live only upon dew, and in a short time died of hunger.

Moral:People should not expect anything out of proportion.

驴子听见蚱蜢唱歌,被美妙动听的歌声所打动,自己也想能发出同样悦耳动听的声音,便 羡慕地问他们吃些什么,才能发出如此美妙的声音来。蚱蜢答道:“吃露水。”驴子便也只吃露水,没多久就饿死了。


英语小故事五:The Dog and the Shadow(狗和影子)

It happened that a Dog had got a piece of meat and was carrying it home in his mouth to eat it in peace. Now, on his way home he had to cross a plank lying across a running brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw his own shadow reflected in the water beneath. Thinking it was another dog with another piece of meat, he made up his mind to have that also. So he made a snap at the shadow in the water, but as he opened his mouth the piece of meat fell out, dropped into the water and was never seen more.

Moral:Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.




A man was going to the house of some rich person. As he went along the road, he saw a box of good apples at the side of the road. He said, “I do not want to eat those apples; for the rich man will give me much food; he will give me very nice food to eat.” Then he took the apples and threw them away into the dust.

He went on and came to a river. The river had become very big; so he could not go over it. He waited for some time; then he said, “I cannot go to the rich man’s house today, for I cannot get over the river.”

He began to go home. He had eaten no food that day. He began to want food. He came to the apples, and he was glad to take them out of the dust and eat them.

Moral:Do not throw good things away; you may be glad to have them at some other time.
