The boy who cried wolf 狼來了

There once was a boy who watched his family's sheep each day. One day, he was bored and wanted to have some fun.

He shouted to the people in the town, "Wolf! Wolf! A wolf is trying to eat my sheep!"

Many people from the town ran to him. When they got there, there was no wolf. There was only the boy, and he was laughing at them because they ran there for nothing.

Another day, the boy was bored, and again he shouted, "Wolf! Wolf!" People from the town ran to him, but the boy just laughed at them again.

Then, one day, a wolf really did attack the boy's sheep. The boy shouted, "Wolf! Wolf! A wolf is attacking my sheep! Help! Help!" He was very afraid and he shouted again and again.

But the people in the town who heard him thought, "The boy is only trying to play a trick on us." And no one went to help him.

The wolf killed all of the boy's sheep.

This is a very old and well-known fable. It has an important lesson: If you often lie, people will not believe you, even when you tell the truth.


曾經有一個小男孩,他每天看顧家裡的羊群。有一天,他感到很無聊,想要找點樂子。

他對著鎮上的人們大叫:「狼來了!狼來了!有一隻狼想要吃我的羊!」

許多鎮上的人們向男孩跑來,當他們到達後,發現根本沒有大野狼,只有一個小男孩在那裡嘲笑他們白跑一趟。

又有一天,男孩覺得無聊,他再度大聲大叫:「狼來了!狼來了!」城裡的人們向男孩跑來,可是男孩郤依舊只是嘲笑他們。

然後,有一天,一隻野狼真的來襲擊這個小男孩的羊群,他大喊:「狼來了!狼來了!有一隻狼要吃我的羊!快來人啊!救命啊!」他非常害怕,並且一直大聲呼救。

可是在城裡聽到男孩呼救的人們卻想著:「小男孩不過是在捉弄我們罷了!」於是沒有人去救助他。

野狼吃掉了男孩所有的羊。

這是一個流傳已久且眾所周知的寓言故事,它有個重要的含意:如果你經常撒謊,那麼即使你所言屬實,別人也不會相信你。
