The Eagle and the Chicken

鹰和鸡

Once upon a time, there was a large mountainside, where an eagle's nest rested. The eagle’s nest contained four large eagle eggs. One day an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down the mountain, to a chicken farm, located in the valley below. The chickens knew that they must protect and care for the eagle’s egg, so an old hen volunteered to raise the large egg.

从前有一个大山坡,那里筑着一个鹰巢。鹰巢里有四只大鹰蛋。有一天,一场地震摇晃了整座大山,使得一只鹰蛋滚下了山,落入了下面山谷中的鸡场。鸡们知道他们必须保护和照顾鹰蛋,所以一只老母鸡自告奋勇地孵蛋。

One day, the egg hatched and a beautiful eagle was born. Sadly, however, the eagle was raised to be a chicken. Soon, the eagle believed he was nothing more than a chicken. The eagle loved his home and family, but his spirit cried out for more. While playing a game on the farm one day, the eagle looked to the skies above and noticed a group of mighty eagles flying in the skies. “Oh,” the eagle cried, “I wish I could fly like those birds.” The chickens burst into laughter, “ You cannot soar with those birds. You are a chicken and chickens do not soar.”

有一天,蛋孵出来了,一只漂亮的鹰诞生了。遗憾的是,鹰被当成一只鸡抚育着。很快,这只鹰也就相信自己只不过是只鸡罢了。鹰爱自己的家和家人,可是他的精神需要更多的东西。有一天,在鸡场上游戏的时候,鹰朝上面的天空望去,看见一群雄健的鹰在空中飞翔。“哦,”鹰叫了起来,“我希望能像那些鸟一样飞翔。”所有的鸡都大笑起来:“你不能跟那些鸟一起飞上天。你是一只鸡,而鸡不能飞。”

The eagle continued staring at his real family up above, dreaming that he could be with them. Each time the eagle let his dreams be known, he was told it couldn’t be done. That is what the eagle learned to believe. The eagle, after time, stopped dreaming and continued to live his life like a chicken. Finally, after a long life as a chicken, the eagle passed away.

那只鹰继续凝视着上方自己真正的家人,梦想着自己能和他们在一起。每当鹰把自己的梦想告诉鸡的时候,鸡都告诉他办不到。鹰也就慢慢地相信了。时间一天天过去,鹰停止了梦想,像鸡一样活着。最后,过了很长鸡的生活后,鹰死去了。

The story makes us know that you become what you believe you are; so if you ever dream to become an eagle, follow your dreams, not the words of a chicken.

这个故事告诉我们,你能成为你想要成为的人;所以,如果你梦想成为鹰的话,就要跟着梦想走,不要听鸡的话。
