|165. The Camel|
When a man first saw the Camel, he was so frightened
at his vast size that he fled away. After a time, perceiving the meekness and gentleness of his temper, he summoned courage enough to approach him. Soon afterwards, observing that he was an animal altogether deficient
in spirit, he assumed such boldness as to put a bridle in his mouth, and to set a child to drive him.
Use serves to overcome dread.
当有一个人第一次看见骆驼时，因见它庞大的身体而非常害怕，甚至吓得逃走。 不久之后，他看出它性情温和柔顺，便鼓起勇气走近它。 后来又观察到它简直是一只缺乏勇气的动物，于是就更大胆一些，将辔头放进它的嘴里去，叫个小孩子去驱使它。
