A very large and strong wolf was born among the wolves. He exceeded all his fellow-wolves1 in strength, size, and swiftness, so that they gave him, with unanimous consent, the name of “Lion.” 一条又大又壮的狼出生在狼群中。在力气、个头和速度方面,他都超过他的同伴,因此,他们一致同意送他一个“狮子”的称号。

 

The wolf, with a want of sense in proportion with his enormous size2, thought that they gave him this name in earnest, and, leaving his own race, consorted exclusively with the lions. 这条狼身材魁伟,头脑简单,他以为他们是真心诚意给他这个名字,便离开了狼群,只与狮子为伴。

 

An old sly fox saw this and said to the wolf: “May I never make myself so ridiculous as you do in your pride and self-conceit; for you really show like a lion among wolves, whereas in a herd of lions you are just a wolf.” 一支狡猾的老狐狸看见这事,便对狼说:“但愿我永远都不会像你那样骄傲自大,荒唐可笑。因为,在狼群中,你真的像头狮子,然而,在狮子群中,你只不过是一条狼而已。”

 

Never forget what you really are. 决不能忘乎所以。

Notes:

1.  his fellow-wolves

短语中的fellow是形容词,表示“同伴的、同类的、同事的、同阶级的”,多用于相互的称呼,比如:你是学生,当你对着你的同学讲话时,你就可以说:“Fellow students!…”(“同学们!。。。。。。”)。再如:fellow workers, fellow representatives, fellow countrymen

2…in proportion with his enormous size…

介词短语in proportion with在此处的意

思是“按照、依。。。。。。而言”。 因此,

整个短语的意思是“就他的庞大块头而

言,他是缺乏辨别能力。”
