Do you want to learn Chinese through stories? Here is a very interesting story - Waiting for hares by the tree. Have you ever heard it before? Let's take a look.
There once was a poor farmer who didn't like farming at all.
cónɡ qián,yǒu yí ɡè pín qiónɡ de nónɡ mín,tā yì diánr yě bù xǐ huɑn zhònɡ dì。
One day, when he was working in his field, there was a hare suddenly bumped into a tree and died.
yì tiān,dānɡ tā zài tián lǐ ɡàn huór shí，yǒu yì zhī yě tù tū rán zhuànɡ dào shù shànɡ,sǐ le。
The farmer took the hare home, and cooked a delicious meal for himself.
nónɡ mín bǎ tù zi dài huí jiā,wéi zì jǐ zuò le yí dùn měi wèi de fàn cài。
"I needn't work so hard, I only need to wait every day by the stump to pick up the hare that runs into it." he thought.
tā xiǎnɡ：“wǒ méi bì yào nà me xīn kǔ zhònɡ dì，wǒ zhǐ xū yào měi tiān zài shù zhuānɡ pánɡ děnɡ zhe，bǎ zhuànɡ sǐ de tù zi ji
ǎn huí jiā jiù xínɡ le。”
From that day, he no longer worked in the filed.
cónɡ nà tiān qǐ，tā bú zài zhònɡ dì le。
He only stayed by the stump every day and dreamed for more hares to come.
tā měi tiān zhǐ shì dài zài shù zhuānɡ pánɡ，huàn xiǎnɡ zhe yǒu ɡènɡ duō de yě tù zì jǐ sònɡ shànɡ mén。
Of course, he must get nothing in the end.
dānɡ rán，tā zuì zhōnɡ kěn dìnɡ yì wú suǒ huò。
The story tells us that we should not only wait for unexpected gains by trusting chance and luck.
zhè ɡe ɡù shi ɡào su wǒ men，bù yīnɡ ɡāi jín jǐn tōnɡ ɡuò xiānɡ xìn jī huì hé yùn qi lái děnɡ dài yì wài de shōu huò。
