〖A Sigh of River〗

At the time of autumn floods when hundreds of streams poured into the Yellow River.the torrents were so violent that it was impossible to distinguish an ox from a horse from the other side of the river.Then the River God was overwhelmed with joy,feeling that all the beauty under the heaven belonged to him alone.Down the river he traveled east until he reached the North Sea.Looking eastwards at the boundless expanse of water,he changed his countenance and sighed to the Sea God,saying,“As the popular saying goes,‘There are men who have heard a little about Reason but still think that no one can surpass them.’I am one of such men.”

【望洋兴叹】

秋汛的季节到了,无数条溪流汇入黄河,河水猛涨,河面宽得连对岸的牛马都辨不清。这样一来,河伯就洋洋自得起来了,以为世界上所有壮丽的景色都集中在自己身上了。他顺看河水向东行,一直来到北海,向东一望,一片辽阔的大海,看不见水的边际。这时,河伯才改变了他骄傲的神态,望着海洋感慨地说:“俗话说‘有人的只学到分之一的道理,就以为谁也比不上自己’,我正是这样的人啊!”
