One day,plato asked his teacher,"What is love?How can I find it?"


柏拉图有一天问老师:“什么是爱情,我怎样才能找到爱情呢?”

His teacher answered ;"There is a vast wheat field in front .Walk forward without turning back and pick only one stalk.If you find the most magnificent stalk then you have found love."

老师告诉他,“前方有一大片麦田,你过去摘一株最大最好的麦穗回来,但你只能往前走,不能回头,并且只可以摘一次。如果你能够找到最大的麦穗,那你就找到了爱情。”

Plato walked forward,and a long time passed before he returned with empty hands,having picked nothing.

于是柏拉图向麦田走去,很久后他才回来,却两手空空。

His teacher asked ,"Why did you not pick any stalk?"

老师问道:“你为什么空手而归?”

Plato answered ;"Because I could only pick once,and yet I could not turn back.I did find the most magnificent stalk,but did not know if there  were any better ones ahead ,so I did not pick it.As I walked future,the stalks that I saw were not as good as the earlier one,so I did not pick any in the end."

柏拉图回答说:“我刚才的确找到了最大的那株麦穗,但我没有摘,因为我只能摘一次,并且还不可回头,我又不能确定前面是否还会有更好的。等我放弃那株继续往前走的时候,才发现没有比那株更好的麦穗了,因此我一株也没有摘。”

His teacher then said,"And that is love."

老师告诉他:“那就是爱情。”

On another day,Plato ask his teacher,"What  is marriage?How can I find it?"

柏拉图有一天又问老师:“什么是婚姻,我怎样才能找到婚姻呢?”

His teacher answered,"There is a thrivign forest in front.Walk forward without turning back,and chop down only one tree,If you find the tallest tree,then you have found marriage."

这次老师告诉他:“前方有一片长得很茂盛的森林,你过去砍一棵树回来,但你只能往前走,不能回头,并且只能砍一棵。如果你能够找到最高的树,那你就找到了婚姻。”

Plato walked forward,and before long,he returned with a tree.The tree was not thriving,and it was not tall either,It was only an ordinary tree.

柏拉图出发了,没过多久他就回来了,扛着一棵很普通的树,树长得不茂盛也不高。

His teacher asked,"Why did you chop down such an ordinary tree?"

老师问道:“你为什么会选择一棵这么普通的树?”
