英語勵志故事:雄鷹

  英語勵志故事:雄鷹
  
  A boy found an eagle’s egg and he put it in the nest of a prairie chicken. The eagle hatched and thought he was a chicken. He grew up doing what prairie chicken do-scratching at the dirt for food and flying short distances with a noisy fluttering of wings. It was a dreary life. Gradually the eagle grew older and bitter. One day he and his prairie chicken friend saw a beautiful bird soaring on the currents of air, high above the mountains.
  
  “Oh, I wish I could fly like that!” said the eagle. The chicken replied, “Don’t give it another thought. That’s the mighty eagle, the king of all birds-you could never be like him!” And the eagle didn’t give it another thought. He went on cackling and complaining about life. He died thinking he was a prairie chicken. My friends, you too were born an eagle. The Creator intended you to be an eagle, so don’t listen to the prairie chickens!
  
  一個小男孩發現瞭一隻老鷹下的蛋,把它放進瞭一隻山雞的窩裡。鷹被孵出來瞭,但他以為自己是一隻山雞。漸漸的他長大瞭,卻做著山雞所做的事—從泥土裡尋找食物,做短距離的飛翔,翅膀還啪啪作響。生活非常沉悶,漸漸地鷹長大瞭,也越來越苦惱。有一天,他和他的山雞朋友看見一隻美麗的鳥在天空翱翔,飛的比山還高。
  
  “哦,我要能飛的那麼高該多好啊!”鷹說。山雞回答說,“不要想瞭,那是兇猛無比的鷹,鳥中之王—你不可能像他一樣!”於是鷹放棄瞭那個念頭。他繼續咯咯地叫,不停的抱怨生活。最後他死瞭,依然認為自己是一隻山雞。朋友們,你們天生就是雄鷹。造物主有意把你造就成一隻雄鷹,所以不要聽信山雞的話!
