The Thirsty Crow1. Once there was a crow. He was very thirsty, and he happened to fly to a pitcher. There was a little water in it, but he could not reach the water no matter how hard he tried. He tried to push over the pitcher with all his strength. He wanted to have the water poured out, but he could not even move the pitcher. It occurred to him that he could do the same way as once upon the time before. So he took small stones and dropped them into the pitcher. As he dropped more and more stones, the water rose higher and higher . At last the water came to the top of the pitcher, and now he could drink it happily and quench his thirst. The story gives us a moral: wisdom works better than strength.(以上改編自THE CROW AND THE PITCHER http://home.kimo.com.tw/ksut-girl/new_page_80.htm)... A thirsty Crow found a Pitcher with some water in it, but so little was there that, try as she might, she could not reach it with her beak, and it seemed as though she would die of thirst within sight of the remedy. At last she hit upon a clever plan. She began dropping pebbles into the Pitcher, and with each pebble the water rose a little higher until at last it reached the brim, and the knowing bird was enabled to quench her thirst.— Necessity is the mother of invention. 以上出自: http://www.factmonster.com/t/lit/aesop-fables-jone...
