1. The Dog In The Manger（牛槽裡的狗）
Once a dog was taking a nap in the manger of an ox. It was full of hay. But soon the ox came back from his work to the manger. He wanted to eat his own hay. Then the dog awoke, stood up and barked at the ox. The ox said to the dog, “Do you want to eat this hay, too?”
“Of course not,” said the dog.
“Then, go away and let me eat my own hay.”
“Oh, no. You go away and let me sleep.”
“What a selfish dog! He will neither eat the hay himself, nor let me eat it !” said the ox to himself.
2.The Boys And The Frogs（男孩與青蛙）
One spring day some naughty boys were playing near a pond. They began to throw stones into the water. In the pond lived many frogs were much afraid of the boys, for the stones hurt some of the frogs. At last an old frog lifted his head out of the water and said, “Boys, please don’t throw stones at us.”
The boys said, “We are only playing.” “I know that, but please stop throwing stones, my boys. What is play to you is death to us,” said the old frog.
So the boys stopped throwing stones and went away.
3.The Trees and the Ax（樹與斧頭）
Once upon a time a man came into a forest. He said to the trees, “Will you give me a piece of hard wood ?”
The tree said, “Yes, we'll give you a good price of hard wood.”
He was very glad to get a good piece of wood. He hurried home with it. At once he made a new handle of his ax.
Then he went to the forest again and began to cut down all the best trees in the forest.
The trees were very sad. They said to one another, “We suffer for our own foolishness.”
