    The Dog and the Wolf

    A gaunt Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he happened to meet a House-dog who was passing by. "Ah, Cousin," said the Dog. "I knew how it would be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you. Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?""I would have no objection," said the Wolf, "if I could only get a place.""I will easily arrange that for you," said the Dog; "come with me to my master and you shall share my work."So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together. On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Dog's neck was very much worn away, so he asked him how that had come about."Oh, it is nothing," said the Dog. "That is only the place where the collar is put on at night to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one soon gets used to it.""Is that all?" said the Wolf. "Then good-bye to you, Master Dog."

    一條饑餓的瘦狼在月光下四處尋食,遇到了餵養得壯實的家狗。他們相互問候後,狼說:「朋友,你怎麼這般肥壯,吃了些甚麼好東西啊?我現在日夜為生計奔波,苦苦地煎熬著。」  狗回答說:「你若想像我這樣,僅只要學著我干就行。」  「真是這樣,」狼急切地問,「甚麼話兒?」  狗回答說:「就是給主人看家,夜間防止賊進來。」  「甚麼時候開始干呢?」狼說,「住在森林裡,風吹雨打,我都受夠了。為了有個暖和的屋子住,不挨餓,做甚麼我都不在乎。」  「那好,」狗說,「跟我走吧!」  他們倆一起上路,狼突然注意到狗脖子上有一塊傷疤,感到十分奇怪,不禁問狗這是怎麼回事。狗說:「沒甚麼。」狼繼續問:「到底是怎麼回事?」  「一點點小事,也許是我脖子上拴鐵鏈子的頸圈弄的。」狗輕描淡寫地說。  「鐵鏈子!」狼驚奇地說,「難道你是說,你不能自由自在隨意地跑來跑去嗎?」  「不對,也許不能完全隨我的心意,」狗說,「白天有時候主人把我拴起來。但我向你保證,在晚上我有絕對的自由;主人把自己盤子中的東西餵給我吃,傭人把殘羹剩飯拿給我吃,他們都對我倍加寵愛。」  「晚安!」狼說,「你去享用你的美餐吧,至於我,寧可自由自在地挨餓,而不願套著一條鏈子過舒適的生活。」

    這個故事帶出的啟示就是:自由比安樂更重要。

    Better to starve free than to be a fat slave.

    寧可餓死,而不是成為一個自由的奴隸脂肪

    問了好多人 終於找到大概的結論

    索寓言故事:

    一隻白胖白胖的狗套著頸圈,狼見到後,便問他:「你被誰拴住了,養得你這麼肥胖?」

    狗說:「是獵人。但願你不要受我這樣的罪,套著沉重的頸圈比挨餓難受得多。」

    狗狗覺得失去自由比肚子餓來的痛苦

    大概的意思應該是:

    寧願少了東西 也不要犧牲自己的自由去屈服某件事情

    譬喻:

    以前住在皇宮的妃子 擁有榮華富貴 衣食無缺

    但...他們卻 缺少了自由 。

    而皇宮外的平民 雖然窮苦 甚至連三餐都有問題

    但他們卻很自由 活的很快樂。

    個人認為大概是這個意思!!
