英語勵志小故事

《The Crow and The Pitcher》

A crow felt very thirsty. He looked for water everywhere. Finally, he found a pitcher.

But there was not a lot of water in the pitcher. His beak could not reach it. He tried again and again, but still could not touch the water.

When he was about to give up, an idea came to him. He took a pebble and dropped it into the pitcher. Then he took another and dropped it in.

Gradually, the water rose, and the crow was able to drink the water.

《口渴的烏鴉》

一隻烏鴉口渴了,到處找水喝。終於,他找到了一個大水罐。

然而,水罐裡面的水並不多,他的尖嘴夠不到水面,他試了一次又一次,都沒有成功

就在他想放棄的時候,他突然想到一個主意。烏鴉叼來了一塊小石子投到水罐里,接著又叼了一塊又一塊石頭放進去。

漸漸地,水面升高了。烏鴉高興地喝到了水。
