|32. The Oxen And The Axle-Trees|
A heavy wagon was being dra
gged along a country lane by a team of oxen. The axle-trees groaned and creaked terribly: when the oxen turned round, thus addressed the wheels. "Hullo there! why do you make so much noise? We bear a
ll the labour, and we, not you, ought to cry out."
Those who suffer most cry out the least.
车轴轧轧地响了起来，声音非常大声，那些牛就转身对车轮说：。 「喂！为什么这么大声呢？ 一切劳苦全由我们承担着；应该呼喊的是我们，不是你啊。」^# 最受苦的人，抱怨最少。
