    The Legend傳說

    Long Ago, there was a bird who sang but just once in her life.

    From the moment she left the nest,

    she searched the longest leaf for a thorn tree,

    never resting until she found one.

    Then she began to sing,

    more sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth.

    But carry away in the rapturous honor song,

    she impaled herself on the longest, sharpest thorn.

    As she was dying,

    she rose above her own agony to out-sing even the lark and the nightingale.

    The thorn bird traded her life for that one song and

    the whole world was captured to listen!

    And God, in His heaven smiles~

    As her very best was brought out only of the cost of great pain.

    Driven by the thorn, with no fear for her death to come.

    But when we push the thorn into our breast,

    We know…

    We understand…

    And still…we choose the pain of the thorn…

    傳說中,有一種鳥一生只鳴唱一次,當牠離開巢穴的那一天起,

    就永不停歇地尋找著世上最長的荊棘。

    當牠找到時,就會將自己的胸膛朝著最長最尖的刺撞去,

    在最深最刻苦的痛中,引亢(口部)高歌,而這樣的歌聲,

    超越了牠自身的痛楚,聲音無與倫比,感人肺腑,

    就連世人以為聲音甜美的雲雀或夜鶯都不能與之相比,

    刺鳥從不懼死亡的降臨,以牠的生命作為換取世上最美麗歌聲的代價,

    而當我們迎向最深刻的痛,我們知道我們將無所畏懼,因為,

    「唯有經歷著最深沉的痛楚,才能換取最美好的事物!」

    但風雨之夜,手拿畫筆和色盤,爬上梯子,把一片紅葉畫在牆上的老畫家,卻染上嚴重的肺炎。在他斷氣的剎那,快樂的望著牆上他一生的傑作。不自私的死,換來了另一條生命,這是最偉大的藝術作品。

    東施效顰

    西施是一個很漂亮的女人。 她比太陽半躲在東邊的山頭還美。 (抱歉這句我不知道中文的成語)西施甚至比一顆珍珠還美。 她是世界上最美的女人。 (這句有點多餘,因為前面已經講過了)西施很有慈悲心,並願意幫助別人。 當她見到一個憂傷的人,她會將她的手放在她的胸前,為他愁眉(應該是指西施會為那人傷心吧)。 她臉上沒有任何皺紋。 當西施經過時,人們低頭說"她真美呀,真是慈悲心腸。 "西施便因她的美貌和慈悲心而出名。

    有另一個女人叫東施。 "我一點都不漂亮,"東施對著鏡子裡的自己說著。 東施想要和西施一樣美麗。 東施便想到了一個點子"或許我可以學西施的樣子,這樣大家就都會說我也很美麗了!"所以她也學西施把手放在胸前,愁眉苦臉的樣子。 她的臉上也沒有皺紋。 但是當人們見到東施時,他們卻說"真是個傻瓜,她想模仿(西施)慈悲的樣子!"沒有人稱讚東施是美人。

When Shi-Shi walked by, people bowed down and said, “What a beautiful girl. She is so kind.”Shi-Shi became famous for her kind heart and beauty.

    There was another girl named Dung-Shi.“I’m not very beautiful,”said Dung-Shi looks as she looked into the mirror. Dung-Shi wanted to be as beautiful as Shi-Shi.
