The Hidden Treasure未知的宝藏

Once, there was an old man who had four sons. All four of them were very lazy.

从前,有一位老人,他有四个儿子。他们四个人都很懒。

One day, the old man fell sick and was counting his last days in bed. He worried a lot about his sons’ future as the young men hesitated a lot to work. The sons believed that luck would favour them.

一天,老人生病了,正在数他在床上的最后几天。他非常担心儿子们的未来,因为这些年轻人对工作犹豫不决。儿子们相信运气会对他们有利。

The old man’s health deteriorated every day and he decided to talk to his sons about their future. However, his sons did not listen to him.

老人的健康每天都在恶化,他决定和儿子们谈谈他们的未来。然而,他的儿子们不听他的话。

Finally, the old man decided to play a trick to let his sons realize the importance of work. He called all his sons and let them sit near him on his bed. He said that he had a treasure box with gold coins and expensive gems for them and wanted to share the treasure equally among the four of them.

最后,老人决定开个玩笑,让他的儿子们认识到工作的重要性。他叫了所有的儿子来,让他们坐在他的床上。他说,他有一个装有金币和昂贵宝石的宝箱给他们,他想让他们四个人平等分享宝藏。

The young men were very happy and asked where his father had placed the treasure. The old man replied, “I cannot exactly remember the place where I have hidden the treasure. However, the treasure box is buried in our land. I’m really not sure about the place where I have hidden the treasure box.”

年轻人非常高兴,问他父亲把财宝放在哪里了。老人回答说:“我记不清我藏宝藏的地方了。然而,宝箱就埋在我们的土地上。我真的不确定我藏宝箱的地方。”

Even though the lazy young sons were happy, they were sad that the old man had forgotten the place where the treasure was hidden. After a few days, the old man died. The sons decided to dig the land to find the treasure box.

尽管懒惰的小儿子们很高兴,但他们很伤心,因为老人忘记了藏宝的地方。几天后,老人去世了。儿子们决定挖土寻找宝箱。

They worked very hard and dug their land. They could not find any treasure box in the land. Finally, they decided to dig a spot in their land that was a bit different from the rest of the area. The sons believed that the treasure was buried in that spot. They dug the specific spot deeply, but got nothing but water.

他们非常努力地工作,挖掘他们的土地。他们在这片土地上找不到任何宝箱。最后,他们决定在他们的土地上挖一块与该地区其他地方稍有不同的地方。儿子们相信宝藏就埋在那个地方。他们把特定的地点挖得很深,但除了水什么也没有得到。

A passerby who noticed the land and the water flowing from the spot talked to the sons about farming. Upon his advice, the four sons sowed vegetable seeds, and planted greens and flowering plants in their land. Since the land was very fertile with abundant water, within a few weeks, it became a fertile garden with nutritious vegetables and greens. The four sons sold the vegetables at a good price and earned a good amount of money.

一个过路人注意到了这块土地和从那里流出的水,就跟儿子们谈论农业。在他的建议下,四个儿子在他们的土地上播种蔬菜种子,种植绿色植物和开花植物。由于土地肥沃,水源充足,在几周内,它变成了一个肥沃的花园,种植着营养丰富的蔬菜和绿叶。这四个儿子以很好的价格出售蔬菜,赚了很多钱。

Then they realized that it was hard work that was referred to as ‘Treasure Box’ by their father. Gradually, the four sons overcame their laziness, worked hard, earned more money and lived happily.

然后他们意识到,这是艰苦的工作,被他们的父亲称为“宝箱”。渐渐地,四个儿子克服了懒惰,努力工作,赚了更多的钱,过着幸福的生活。

Moral: Hard Work Always Pays.
寓意:努力工作总是有回报的。
