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,
And still…we choose the pain of the thorn…

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。

Shi-Shi was a beautiful girl. She was more beautiful than the sun peeking over the hills in the east. Shi-Shi was even more beautiful than a pearl. She was the most beautiful girl in the world. Shi-Shi was very kind and helped every one. When she saw a sad person, she put her hand over her heart and bent over her eyebrows. Little wrinkles showed around her eyes. 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. Dung-Shi had an idea. “Maybe I can copy the way Shi-Shi looks. Then people will say that I am beautiful, too.“ So she put her hand over her heart and bent over her eyebrows. Little wrinkles showed around her eyes. When people saw Dung-Shi, they said,“What a foolish girl. She is pretending to be kind!”No one said that Dung-Shi was beautiful.
