From horse back

栏目:英语小故事 作者:草屋文章网 时间:2012-04-18 点击:
One day, Confucius went out for a tour. While he were having a rest, his horse run away and ate a farmer's crop in the field. The angry farmer caught the horse
and locked it in his yard. After knowing what happened, Confucius asked Zi Gong (Zi Gong is one of best students of Confucius, a well learned scholar and capable eristic) to retrieve his horse.
Walking to the farmer's house, Zi Gong very politely asked him to return his teacher's horse. But to his surprise, the man had no response but a word "no". Disappointedly, he went back to Confucius and began to complain of the farmer's rudeness. Confucius said: "It is my fault not the farmer's. I should not have let you do this. You are a knowledgeable scholar, while he is a badly educated farmer. You two speak different language. Using reasons that the listener can not understand to persuade him is like feeding wide beasts with precious sacrifice, playing elegant music for flying birds." So Confucius had his stableman go to the farmer's place again. The stableman said to the farmer: "You farm in the east, and I live in the west. We don't know each other, but our crop looks the same. How can the horse know the crop is yours or mine?" The farmer was fully convinced and happily returned Confucius's horse.
