78 Wealth Success and Love 财富 成功与爱

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."
一个妇女看见三位有着长长的白胡子的老人坐在她家的前院里,就对他们说:“虽然我们素不相识,但你们一定饿了吧。那就请进屋吃点东西吧!”

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked.
“请问男主人在家吗?”他们问道。

"No", she replied, "He's out."
“不在,他出去了。”她回答道。

"Then we cannot come in", they replied.
三个人回答道:“那我们不能去。”

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.
 晚上,她丈夫回来了,她告诉他今天发生的事情。

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" He said.
“去告诉他们我回来了,并且邀请他们进来吧。”丈夫说道。

The woman went out and invited the men in.
于是她出去并邀请他们。

"We do not go into a House together," they replied.
“我们不会一起进屋的。”三个人异口同声地答道。

"Why is that?" she wanted to know.
“那是为什么?”妇女感到很奇怪。

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, "and said pointing to another, "he is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Wouldn't it be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love.""Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife. "Go out and invite Love to be our guest."
其中一位老人解释并指着其他两位朋友说道:“他叫‘财富’,这是‘成功’,而我则是‘爱’。“随后他又补充道,“现在你回屋去,和你丈夫商量一下。愿意让我们中的哪一位进去。”妇女便回屋把一切都告诉了丈夫。她丈夫听后,极其喜悦地说:“太好了,竟有这等好事。我们要‘财富’吧,让他进来,翻门就会家财万贯了!”妻子不同意:“我说亲爱的,我们为什么不邀请‘成功’呢?”这时,他们的儿媳妇在房子里的另一个角落听到了他们的谈话,她跳着进来并建议道:“请‘爱’不是更好吗?那样我们的家不就充满爱了吗?”“听媳妇的吧!”丈夫对妻子说,“去请‘爱’进来做客吧!

The woman went out and asked the three old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."Love got up and started walking toward the house.The other two also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"
于是,那个妇女出来问道:“请问哪一位是‘爱’呀?请进屋做客吧!”‘爱’站了起来,向屋子走去。另外两个人也站了起来,跟在‘爱’的身后。妇女很惊讶,便问‘财富’和‘成功’:“我只邀请了‘爱’,怎么你们也进来了呢?”

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!"
三位老人再次异口同声地答道:“如果你邀请‘财富’或是‘成功’,我们中的另外两个人就会待在外面,但是既然你邀请了‘爱’,无论走到哪里,我们都会跟着他。因为哪里有‘爱’。哪里就会有‘财富’和‘成功’!”
