[读书] 赛跑——安徒生童话

赛跑——安徒生童话

有人贡献出一个奖品——也可以说是两个奖品吧:一大一小——来奖励速度最快的赛跑者。但这不是指在一次竞赛中所达到的最快的速度,而是在全年的赛跑中所达到的速度。“我得到了头奖!”野兔说。“但是有人在评奖委员会中有亲戚和朋友,所以我呼吁大家主持公道。蜗牛居然得到了二等奖!我不禁要认为这是对我的一种侮辱。”

“不对!”亲眼看到过发奖的篱笆桩说:“热忱和毅力也必须考虑进去。许多有地位的人都这样说过,我也懂得这话的意义。蜗牛的确要花半年的时间才能走过门口。而且因为他要赶时间,还把大腿骨折断了。他是全心全意地赛跑!而且背上还要背着自己的屋子!这都是值得奖励的!因此他得到了二等奖!”

“你们也应该把我考虑进去呀!”燕子说。“我相信,在飞翔方面,谁也没有我快。我什么地方都去过:我飞得才远呢,远呢,远呢!”“对,这正是你的不幸!”篱笆桩说。“你太喜欢流浪了。天气一冷,你就老不在家,跑到外国去了。你一点儿爱国心也没有。你没有被考虑的资格!”

“不过整个冬天我是住在沼泽地里呀!”燕子说。“假如我把这段时间都睡过去,我值不值得考虑呢?”

“如果你能从沼泽女人那儿得到一张证明书,证明你有一半的时间是睡在你的祖国,那么人们就会考虑你的!”

“我应该得到头奖,而不是二等奖!”蜗牛说。“我知道得很清楚,野兔是因为懦弱才拼命跑。他老是以为他停下来就要碰到危险。相反,我把赛跑作为一种任务,而且在完成这个任务时还挂了彩!如果说有人应该得到头奖,这个人就是我!不过我不愿意小题大做——我讨厌这种做法!”于是他就吐了一口粘液,表示不屑。

“我可以向你们正式保证,每个奖品都是经过慎重考虑的——至少我投的票是经过慎重考虑的!”作为树林的界标的那根木桩说;他也是评奖委员会中的一员。“我总是依照次序、经过深思熟虑以后才决定问题的。从前有七次我荣幸地参加过给奖工作,但是今天我才能有机会贯彻我的主张。我每次给奖的时候,总是从一个固定的原则出发。决定第一奖的时候,我总是从头一个字母朝下顺数;决定第二奖的时候,我总是从最后一个字母朝上倒数。如果你注意一下,你就可以看出:从A 朝下顺数的第八个字母是H。到这儿我们就得到‘野兔’这个字,因此我就投票赞成把头奖送给野兔。从最后一个字母向上倒数的第八个字母——我故意漏掉它,因为这个字母的声调不好听,而不好听的字在我看来是不算数的——是S。因此我投票赞成蜗牛得二等奖。下一次得轮到I 得头奖,R 得二等奖!无论什么事情都应该有一个次序;任何人都应该有一个出发点!”

“假如我不是一个评奖人,我一定会投我自己的票,”骡子说;他也是评奖委员之一。“人们不仅应该考虑跑的速度,同时还应该考虑其他的条件。比方说吧:一个人能背多重的担子。不过这次我不愿着重地把这一点提出来,也不愿意讨论野兔在赛跑时所表现的机智,他突然一闪身跳到旁边引导别人从那里跑入歧途的小聪明;不,还有别的东西值得人注意,一点也不能忽略,那就是大家所谓的‘美’。我这个人特别喜欢在‘美’这一点上着眼。我喜欢看野兔那一对美丽而丰满的耳朵。它们该是多么长啊:看看它们真是一桩快事!我好像看到了我自己的儿时一样。因此我投他的票!”

“嘘!”苍蝇说,“我不愿意发表演说,我只想讲一件事情!我可以肯定他说,我不止一次跑在野兔的前面。前不久我还压断了一只野兔的后腿呢。那时,我歇在一列火车最前头的火车头上——我常常做这样的事情,这样便可以最清楚地看到自己的速度。一只小野兔在前面老远的地方跑;他没有想到我就坐在火车头上。最后他不得不转个弯跑,因为我歇在那上面,他的后腿被火车头轧断了。野兔倒下来,我还继续向前跑。这可算是打垮他了吧?但是我并不需要头奖!”

“我觉得——”野玫瑰想,但是她却不说出口来,因为她天生不喜欢多发表意见,虽然即使她发表了也没有什么关系,“我觉得太阳光应该得到头等光荣奖和二等奖。他在转瞬之间就走完一条无法计算的路程;他直接从太阳走向我们,而且到来的时候力量非常大,使整个大自然都醒过来。他具有一种美,我们所有的玫瑰一见到他就红起来,散发出香气!我们可尊敬的评奖先生们似乎一点也没有注意到这件事情!假如我是太阳光,我就要使他们中暑。不过这会把他们的头脑弄糊涂,然而他们可能本来就是糊涂的。我还是不发表意见吧!”野玫瑰想。“但愿树林里永远是和平的!开花、散发出香气、休息、在歌声和故事声中生活——这是很美丽的。太阳光的寿命,比我们所有的人都长!”

“头奖究竟是什么呢?”蚯蚓问。他睡过了时间,到现在才来。

“是免费进入菜园!”骡子说。“这个奖是我建议的。野兔应该得到它。我作为一个有头脑和活跃的评奖委员,特别考虑到得奖人的福利:现在野兔可以不愁衣食了。蜗牛可以坐在石围墙上舔青苔和晒太阳光,同时可以得到一个赛跑头等评判员的职位,因为在人们所谓的委员会中有一个专家总是好的。我可以说,我对于未来的期望很大,我们已经有了一个良好的开端!”

PS,讨论问题的时候,别急着说服别人,那是个复杂的过程......苍蝇讲故事,不摆道理,它的发言值得一乐!

这个寓言牛B!是你的原创吗?很有潜力!
标题所述:赛跑——安徒生童话
原文如下:
A prize was offered - or rather two prizes, a large one and a small one - for the greatest speed shown, not in just one race, but by one who had been racing for the whole year.

"I won the first prize," said the Hare. "Of course, one can expect justice when one's own family and good friends are members of the jury; but for the Snail to have received the second prize I consider almost an insult to me!"

"No," assured the Fence Rail, who had been witness to the distribution of prizes. "You have to consider diligence and good will. Several very worthy persons made that remark to me, and I quite agree with it. Of course, the Snail took a whole six months to cross the threshold, but he broke his thighbone in his haste, for haste it was for him. He devoted himself entirely to this race; and he even ran with his house on his back. All this is very commendable, and so he was awarded second prize."

"I think my claims ought to have received consideration," said the Swallow. I believe no one has shown himself swifter than I, in flight and motion. And where haven't I been? Far, far away!"

"That's just your trouble," said the Fence Rail. "You don't settle down enough. You're always going somewhere, leaving the country when it begins to freeze here. You haven't any love for your fatherland, so you can't claim any consideration in it."

"But suppose I slept the whole winter through on the moor," asked the Swallow, "slept my whole time away. Then would I deserve to be considered?

"Get an affidavit from the old woman of the marsh that you slept a half year in your fatherland, and then your claims will be given consideration."

"I really deserved the first prize instead of the second," said the Snail. "I know perfectly well that the Hare ran only because he was afraid, whenever he thought danger was near. On the other hand, I made the trial the task of my life, and I have crippled myself through my efforts. If anyone had a right to the first prize it was I; but I'm not making a fuss; I despise fusses!" And then he spat.

"I can give you my word of honor," said the old Signpost who had been one of the judges, "that each prize, at least as far as my influence went, was awarded with strict justice. I always proceed according to order, reflection, and calculation. Seven times before now I have had the honorof helping in giving out the prize, but not until today have I been able to do it in my own way. At each distribution I have always had something specific in mind. For the first prize I have always started from the first letter of the alphabet, and for the second I've started from the last. If you'll give me your attention for a moment I'll explain it to you. The eighth letter of the alphabet from A is H. That stands for Hare, so I voted the first prize to go to the Hare. And the eighth letter from the end is S, so I voted the second prize to the Snail. Next time the letter I will get the first prize and R the second. There should always be proper order in everything. One must have certain rules to go by."

"Well, I should certainly have voted for myself, if I hadn't been one of the judges," said the Mule, who was also a juryman. "People must consider not only how quickly you run, but other conditions that are pertinent, such as how much you are able to pull. But I wouldn't have laid stress on this point this time, nor about the shrewdness of the Hare's flight - how cleverly he sprang suddenly to one side, in order to lead people into a wrong track and away from his hiding place. No, there is still another thing of great importance to many people that should be considered. It is called 'the beautiful.' I saw it in the Hare's handsome, well-made ears; it's really a pleasure to see how long they are. I thought I was seeing myself when I was small; that's why I voted for him."

"Oh, hush!" said the Fly. "As for me, I won't make a speech; I just want to say one word. I know for certain that I've outrun more than one hare. The other day I broke the hind legs of a young one. I was sitting on the railway engine at the front of the train. I often do that; you can see your own speed so well there. For a long time a young hare ran in front of the engine - he had no idea I was there. At last, just as he was going to turn off the tracks, the locomotive ran over his hind legs and broke them, because I was sitting on it. He remained lying there, but I passed on. That was certainly outrunning him; but I don't need the prize."

"It seems to me," thought the wild Rose, although she didn't speak it out loud - it was not her nature to express her ideas openly, though it might have been a good thing to do - "it seems to me that the Sunbeam should have had the first prize, and the second, too. It crosses in a moment the limitless space from the sun to us and brings such power that all nature is awakened by it. And under its beauty we roses blush and become fragrant. These high and mighty judges don't seem to have noticed it at all. If I were a Sunbeam I'd give them each a sunstroke! But then, it would only make them crazy, and they'll probably be that, anyway. No, I won't say anything," thought the wild Rose. It's peaceful here in the woods; it's delightful to bloom, to shed fragrant perfume everywhere, to live in story and in song! But the Sunbeams will outlive all of us."

"What's the first prize?" asked the Earthworm, who had overslept and just now arrived.

"Free entrance to a kitchen garden," said the Mule. "I suggested that prize. The Hare must and should have it; as a clear-thinking and rational member of the committee, this seemed to me a sensible way of looking at it. I was determined that he should have it, so now the Hare is provided for. The Snail has permission to sit on the stone fence and enjoy the moss and sunshine; and in addition to this, he has been appointed one of the head judges of the next race. It is sensible to have one who has practical knowledge of the business at hand sitting on a committee, as the humans calls it. I must say I expect a great deal from the future - we have already made such a sound beginning!"

呵呵,每个人对于特定事物的评判标准都不同,安心做自己的事,能够做好自己心目中的自己就已经很不容易了,至于其他,任由他人评说也不无可取之处。
