俗諺說:「三個臭皮匠,勝過一個諸葛亮。」 意思是即使才能平庸的人,若能同心協力、集思廣益,也能完成高明周到的計畫。群居動物團結在一起,可以互相照應、抵禦外敵;但心念要正,才能持久。



在樹下休息的烏龜,嘲諷地對那隻在上面築巢的鳥說:「你簡陋的房子是由斷樹枝做的、沒有屋頂,看起來真粗糙。更糟糕的是,你不得不自己動手;我覺得我的房子,也就是我隨身攜帶的殼,比你那可悲的巢要好得多啦。」

「是的,它是由折斷的枝條築成的,看上去簡單,而且融合大自然的元素。它雖粗糙,但是自己建造的,我喜歡它。」

烏龜說:「我想它就和任何一個鳥巢一模一樣,但跟我的沒法比。」「不過,你一定是嫉妒我有這樣的殼。」

「恰恰相反。」那隻鳥回答:「我的家有足夠的空間供我的家人和朋友使用;你的殼容納不下你以外的任何人。也許你有比較好的房屋。但是我有更好的家,擠滿家人朋友的小屋,勝過孤獨的豪宅。」那隻鳥高興地說。

四頭牛

四頭母牛住在草甸附近的森林裡。他們是好朋友,一起做所有事情。他們一起吃草,待在一起,因此沒有老虎或獅子能捕食他們。

但是有一天,朋友們吵架了,每頭母牛都朝著不同的方向放牧。一隻老虎和一隻獅子看到了這一點,並決定這是攻擊的絕好機會。

幸運的是,母牛們發現及時,他們決定躲藏在灌木叢中,所有人都擺脫了危險,團結就是力量。

四個學生

有四個學生討厭讀書,他們在考試前還整晚參加派對,並計畫對教授撒謊逃過測驗。於是他們跑到院長面前,說前一天晚上他們去參加婚禮,在回程的路上,輪胎爆了又沒備胎,所以不得不把車一直推回來,因此狀況不佳、不適合參加考試。

院長聽了之後並同意讓他們以後再考,這四個傢伙很高興有第二次機會,於是開始努力溫習準備。考試當天,院長要求四個學生分別坐在不同的教室裡,他們也乖乖照辦。

總分一百分的試卷上只有兩個問題:

1.你的名字:

2.汽車是哪個輪胎爆裂:(a)左前(b)右前(c)左後(d)右後

(你可能很聰明,但世界上還有些人比你更聰明。)

Home



A tortoise was resting under a tree, on which a bird had built its nest. The tortoise spoke to the bird mockingly, "What a shabby home you have! It is made of broken twigs, it has no roof, and looks crude. What's worse is that you had to build it yourself. I think my house, which is my shell, is much better than your pathetic nest".

"Yes, it is made of broken sticks, looks shabby, and is open to the elements of nature. It is crude, but I built it, and I like it."

"I guess it's just like any other nest, but not better than mine", said the tortoise. "You must be jealous of my shell, though."

"On the contrary", the bird replied. "My home has space for my family and friends; your shell cannot accommodate anyone other than you. Maybe you have a better house. But I have a better home, better a crowded hut than a lonely mansion." said the bird happily.

The Four Cows

Four cows lived in a forest near a meadow. They were good friends and did everything together. They grazed together and stayed together, because of which no tigers or lions were able to prey on them.

But one day, the friends fought and each cow went to graze in a different direction. A tiger and a lion saw this and decided that it was the perfect opportunity to attack.

Fortunately, the cows found out that, they decided to hide in the bushes, and all escaped from the hazardous condition, unity is strength.

The Four Students

There were four students who hated studying. They partied all night before their exams and planned to skip the test by lying to the professor. So they went to the dean and told him that they had been to a wedding the previous night and on their way back, they had a flat tire, they had to push the car all the way back, as they didn't have a spare tire and hence, were not in a position to write the exam.

The dean listened and agreed to let them take the test on a later date. Happy that they got a second chance, the four friends studied hard and were ready for the exam. On exam day, the dean asked the students to sit in separate classrooms, which the students agreed to.

The examination paper had only two questions, for a total of 100 marks. The questions were thus:

1.Your name:

2.Which tire of the car burst: (a) Front Left (b)Front right (c) Rear left (d) Rear right

You may be smart, but there are people smarter than you in the world.
