A Happy Man

快乐的人

Long, long ago, there lived a very rich and powerful king. All the people in his country were afraid of him. But was he happy? No, he was always ill and unhappy.

很久很久以前,有一位非常有钱有势的国王。他的国家所有的人都怕他。但是,他快乐吗?不,他总是生病,不愉快。

The doctors in his country could not cure him. He was so angry with them that he cut off their heads. One day two famous doctors from another country came to see him. The king said to them, “If you can cure me and make me happy,I'll give a lot of gold.”

他国家的医生治不了他的病。他对这些医生很生气,将他们斩了首。有一天,两个来自别的国家的名医前来给他看病。国王对他们说: “如果你们能够治好我,使我快乐,我会给你们很多黄金。”

The first doctor examined the king. He found nothing wrong with him. “Oh, King, you are very well,”said the doctor. “You think you are ill and that makes you unhappy.” The king was very angry when he heard this. He told his soldiers to cut off the doctor's head. The second doctor knew he had to be careful. “Oh, King, you'll be all right if you find a happy man and wear his shoes,” he said. The king was satisfied with his words and thought that the doctor was clever. Then he gave the doctor a bag of gold.

第一个医生检查了国王,发现国王没有什么异常。“哦,国王,您的身体很健康,”医生说,“您以为您有病,所以不开心。”听到这里,国王非常生气。他让他的士兵砍下那个医生的头。第二个医生知道他必须非常小心。“哦,国王,如果您找到一个快乐的人,穿上他的鞋子,您的病就会好的,”他说。国王对他的话表示满意,认为这个医生很聪明,就给了这个医生一袋金子。

The king asked hundreds of people whether they were always happy. They all said they were sometimes happy and sometimes unhappy. At last the king met a beggar. The beggar said that he was always happy.

国王问了成百上千的人,他们是否快乐。他们都说,有时快乐,有时不快乐。最后国王遇见了一个叫花子,叫花子说,他总是很快乐。

“Give me your shoes quickly,”said the king, “And I'll make you a very rich man.” The beggar smiled and said, “Sorry, I never wear shoes.”

“快把你的鞋子给我,”国王说我会让你成为一个非常有钱的人。” 叫花子微笑着说:“对不起,我从来不穿鞋。”
