|181. The Crow And The Pitcher|
A Crow perishing with thirst saw a
pitcher, and, hoping to find water, flew to it with great delight. When he reached it, he discovered to his grief that it contained so little water that he could not possibly get at it. He tried everything he could t
hink of to reach the water, but all his efforts were in vain. At last he collected as many stones as he could carry, and dropped them one by one with his beak into the pitcher, until he brought the water within his reach, and thus save
d his life.
Necessity is the mother of invention.
一只乌鸦，快要渴死了，看见一个瓮，因为想要找寻一点水，便快乐地向它飞去。 它飞到的时候，却感到很悲伤，因为发现瓮里的水很少，它根本喝不到。 它用尽各种方法去尝试，总是徒劳无功。 最后，它努力收集了许多的石子，用它的嘴将它们一块块地放到瓮中去，直到后来，它使水溢高到喝得到的地方，才舒缓了自己的口渴。
