The best Nourishment of Life

A little boy almost thought of himself as the most unfortunate child in the world because poliomyelitis made his leg lame and his teeth uneven and protrudent. He seldom played with his classmates; and when the teacher asked him to answer questions, he always lowered his head without a word.

One spring, the boy's father asked for some saplings from the neighbor. He wanted to plant them in the front of the house. He told his children to plant a sapling each person. The father said to the children,"Whose seedling grows best, I will buy him or her a favorite gift. "The boy also wanted to get his father's gift. But seeing his brothers and sisters carrying water to water the trees bouncily, anyhow, he hit upon an idea: he hoped the tree he planted would die soon. So after watering it once or twice, he never attended to it.

A few days later, when the little boy went to see his tree again, he was surprised to find it not only didn't wilt, but also grew song fresh leaves, and compared with the trees of his brother and sister, his tree appeared greener and more vital. His father kept his praise, bought the little boy his favorite gift and said to him: from the tree he planted, he would become an oustanding botanist when he grow up.

Since then, the little boy slowly became optimistic. One day, the little boy lay on the bed but could't sleep. Looking at the bright moonlight outside the window, he suddenly recalled what the biology teacher once said, plants generally grow at night. Why not go to see the tree? When he came to the courtyard on tiptoe, he found his father was splashing something under his tree with a ladle. All of a sudden, he understood: his father had been secretly fertilizing his small tree! He returned to his room, tears running without restraint.

Decades passed. The little boy didn't become a botanist, but he was elected President of the United States. His name was Franklin Roosevelt.

Love is the best nourishment of life; even if it is just one ladleful of clear water,it can make the tree of life thrive.

 

生命中最好的养料

    一个小男孩几乎认为自己是世界上最不幸的孩子,因为患脊髓灰质炎而留下了瘸腿和参差不齐的牙齿。他很少跟同学们玩耍;老师叫他回答问题时,他总是低着头一言不发。

一年春天,小男孩的父亲从邻居家讨了些树苗,他想把它们栽在房前。他叫他的孩子每人种一棵。父亲对孩子们说:“谁的树苗长得好,我就给谁买一件最喜欢的礼物。”小男孩也想得到父亲的礼物。但是看到兄弟姐妹蹦蹦跳跳的背影,不知怎的,他萌生出一种想法,他希望自己栽的那棵树早日死去。因此,浇过一两次水后,他再也没去管它。

    几天后,小男孩再去看他种的那颗树时,他惊奇的发现它不仅没有枯萎,而且还长出几片新叶,显得很嫩、更有生气。父亲兑现了他的诺言,为小男孩买了一件他最喜欢的礼物,并对他说,从他栽的树来看,他长大后一定能成为一个出色的植物学家。

    从那以后,小男孩慢慢地变得乐观起来。一天晚上,小男孩躺在床上睡不着,看着窗外皎洁的月光,突然想起生物老师曾说过的话:植物一半都在晚上生长。何不去看看自己种的那棵小树呢?但他轻手轻脚来到院子时,却看见父亲用勺子在向自己栽种的那棵树下泼洒什么。顿时,一切他都明白了,原来他父亲一直在偷偷地为自己栽种的那棵小树施肥!他返回房间,任凭泪水肆流。。。

    几十年过去了。尽管那个瘸腿的小男孩没有成为植物学家,他却成为了美国总统,他的名字叫富兰克林.罗斯福。

    爱是生命最好的养料,哪怕只是一勺清水,它都能使生命之树茁壮成长。
