成语故事

The king of Chu had been a king for three years, but he never managed the state affairs.楚庄王即位了三年,没管理过国家大事。


 A minister was worried so he said to the king: “ I have a puzzle. Could you help me to solve it?”大臣伍举很着急,进宫去对楚庄王说:“大王,我有个谜解不开,想请您猜一猜。”


 The king said: “ What is it?” 楚庄王说:“您就说吧!”


The minister answered: “ There is a bird living in the South Mountains. It never sings or flies. Why?” 伍举说:“有一只鸟停在南山上,三年来不飞也不叫,这是什么缘故呢?”


The king smiled: “ In order to make its wings stronger, it never flies. And for knowing the situations, it never sings. Although it does not fly, it will fly straight into the sky afterwards;楚庄王笑笑说:“三年不飞,为了让翅膀长得坚强些;三年不叫,为了看看周围的情形。

Even if it doesn’t sing, its singing must be surprising once it does.它虽然不飞,一飞起来就直冲云霄;虽然不叫,一叫出声就让人吃惊(一鸣惊人)。


 Don’t worry, I know what you mean.” 您放心吧,我知道您的意思了。”


After half a year, the king of Chu managed the state affairs. 又过了半年,楚庄王亲自管理起国家大事来。


He abolished the unreasonable laws and made new laws. He fired the incompetent ministers and asked the learned people for help.他废除了不合理的法令,制定了新的法令;罢免了不称职的大臣,请有学问的人来帮他办事。


The State of Chu became better and better. And the king became a leader of all the countries.楚庄王把楚国治理得很好,后来成了各国君主的首领。
