A wolf was almost dead with hunger. A house-dog saw him, and asked, "Friend, your irregular life will soon ruin you. 一只狼快要饿死了，一只狗看见后问他：“你现在的无规律的生活一定会毁掉你
"Why don't you work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly?" 为什么不像我一样稳定地干活并有规律地获得食物呢?”
"I would have no objection," said the wolf, "if I could only get a place." "I will help you," said the dog.狼说：“如果我有个地方住，我没有意见。”
"Come with me to my master, and you shall share my work." So the wolf and the dog went to the town together. 狗回答说：“跟我到主人那里去，我们一起工作。”于是狼和狗一起回到了村子。
On the way the wolf saw that there was no hair around the dog's neck. 在路上，狼注意到狗的脖子上有一圈没有毛
He felt quite surprised, and asked him why it was like that?他很奇怪地问为什么会那样。
"Oh, it is nothing," said the dog. "Every night my master puts a collar around my neck and chains me up. You will soon get used to it." “噢，没有什么，”狗说，“我的主人每天晚上都用一条铁链子拴住我，你很快就会习惯的。”
"Is that the only reason?" said the wolf. "Then good-bye to you, my friend. I would rather be free."“就是因为这个原因吗?”狼说道，“那么，再见了，我的朋友，我宁愿选择自由。”
One day the wind said to the sun, “Look at that man walking along the road. I can get his cloak off more quickly than you can.”
“We will see about that,” said the sun. “I will let you try first.”
So the wind tried to make the man take off his cloak. He blew and blew, but the man only pulled his cloak more closely around himself.
“I give up,” said the wind at last. “I cannot get his cloak off.” Then the sun tried. He shone as hard as he could. The man soon became hot and took off his cloak.
A man is going to the house of a rich man. He sees a box of good apples by the road. He says, “I don’t want them, because the rich man will give me a lot of good food.” Then he takes the apples and throws them into the dustbin.
He comes to a river. The water in the river is very deep and he can’t get across it. He says to himself, “I can’t go to the rich man’s house today. ” So he goes home.
He has nothing to eat the day. He is very hungry, so he comes to the apples.
Don’t throw good things away, you may be glad to have them sometimes.
