The wolves thus addressed the sheep-dogs: 许多狼对牧羊犬如此说道:

 

“You sheep-dogs are like us wolves in so many things. Why should you not be entirely of one mind with us? Why should you not live with us like brothers? “你们牧羊犬和我们狼有许多相似的地方。你们为什么不和我们一心一意呢?你们为什么不和我们像兄弟般地相处呢?

 

“We differ from you in one point only. We live in freedom, but you bow down to, and slave for men. And they, in return, for your services, flog you with their whips, and put collar on your necks. They make you also guard their sheep, and while they eat the mutton they only throw the bones to you. If you will take our advice, you will give us the sheep, and we will enjoy them in common, till we all are surfeited.” “我们和你们,只有一点不同。我们自由自在地生活,而你们对人类卑躬屈膝,被他们所奴役。你们给他们服务,他们给你们的回报却是:用鞭子抽打你们,在你们的脖子上戴上颈圈。他们迫使你们为他们看守羊群。他们吃羊肉,只剩下的骨头甩给你们。如果你们听从我们的劝告,就把羊群给与我们,我们一起共享,大家饱餐一顿。”

 

The dogs listened favorably to these proposals, and, entering the den of the wolves, they were set upon and torn to pieces by the wolves. 那些牧羊犬听到这些建议,觉得很顺耳。他们一走进狼窝,立刻被狼攻击,撕成了碎片。

 

Take your enemy’s advice and you will suffer. 听从敌人的意见,必定遭殃。

 

Notes:

1.       We differ from you in one point only.

句中的谓语动词differ后面可以接介词from, 介词的宾语和主语一致,都指人、物或事。比如:She differs from her sister in character (她和她的姐姐性格不相同). / This cloth differs from that in price.(这种布与那种布的价格不同。)

动词differ 后面还可以接from with 再接介词 about on upon,表示“在某方面与人不同”。比如:I’m sorry to differ with (from) you about (on, upon) that question. (对不起,在这个问题上,我与你的看法不一样。)

2.       Take your enemy’s advice and you will suffer.

这是一个复合句,虽然有并立连词and

将前后两个句子连接。前面的Take your

enemy’s advice是条件从句,意思是“如

果你听从敌人的建议”,后面的you will

suffer是主句。
