A stag asked a sheep to lend him a measure of wheat, saying: “Don’t worry. The wolf will be my surety.” 一支牡鹿向羊借一定数量的小麦,说道:“别担心,狼将给我当担保人。”

 

The sheep was afraid of being cheated and intended to find some excuses for not lending him any wheat1. 羊担心会上当受骗,便打算找点借口,不借给他小麦。

 

She said to the stag: “The wolf is accustomed to seize what he wants2, and to run off; and you, too, can quickly outstrip me in your rapid flight. How then shall I be able to find you when the day of payment comes?” 她对牡鹿说:“狼常常想抓什么就抓什么,抓到就跑。而你也一样,逃起来比我跑得快。因此,等到还麦子的时候,我怎么能找到你呢?”

 

Two blacks do not make one white3. 两个绝对的坏,不可能变成一个绝对的好。

 

Notes:

1.  …for not lending him any wheat.

句中的动名词短语not lending him any wheat,作介词for的宾语。 副词not修饰 lending him any wheat,构成动名词短语的否定式。

2.  …to seize what he wants…

关系代词what引导一个定语从句,作不定式to seize 的宾语。关系代词what还在定语从句中作谓语动词wants的宾语。注意what = something which

3.  Two blacks do not make one white.

句中的blacks是名词,表示“绝对的坏”。white也是名词,表示“绝对的好”。
