成语故事

东汉时,河南郡有一位贤惠的女子,人们都不知她叫什么名字,只知道是乐羊子的妻子。

一天,乐羊子在路上拾到一块金子,回家后把它交给妻子。妻子说:“我听说有志向的人不喝”盗泉”的水,因为它的名字令人厌恶;也不吃别人施舍而呼唤过来吃的食物,宁可饿死。更何况拾取别人失去的乐西。这样会玷污品行。”乐羊子听了妻子的话,非常惭愧,就把那块金子扔到野外,然后到远方去寻师求学。

一年后,乐羊子归来。妻子跪着问他为何回家,乐羊子说:“出门时间长了想家,没有其他缘故。”妻子听罢,操起一把刀走到织布机前,严厉地说:“这机上织的绢帛产自蚕茧,成于织机。一根丝一根丝地积累起来,才有一寸长;一寸寸地积累下去,才有一丈乃至一匹。今天如果我将它割断,就会前功尽弃,从前的时间也就白白浪费掉。”

妻子接着又说:“读书也是这样,你积累学问,应该每天获得新的知识,从而使自已的品行日益完美。如果半途而归,和割断织丝有什么两样呢?”

乐羊子被妻子说的话深深感动,于是又去完成学业,一连七年没有回过家。

故事寓意

做事如果每次做到一半就放弃,那么我们最后肯定什么事情都做不成功,只有坚持到底,一件事情一件事情地完成,我们才能一步一步前进,在胜利的道路上越走越远。立下了目标,就要敢于实践,努力完成,只会空想是不对的,半途而废也是不对的。

Idiom story

In the Eastern Han Dynasty, there was a virtuous woman in Henan County. People don’t know her name, only Le Yangzi’s wife.

One day, Le Yangzi found a piece of gold on the road and gave it to his wife when he returned home. The wife said: “I heard that people with ambitions do not drink the water from “Stealing Spring” because its name is disgusting; they do not eat the food that others call for charity and rather starve to death. Not to mention picking up what others have lost. Le Xi. This will tarnish character.” Le Yangzi was very ashamed when he heard his wife’s words, so he threw the piece of gold into the wild, and then went to a distance to seek a teacher to study.

A year later, Le Yangzi returned. His wife knelt and asked him why he went home. Le Yangzi said, “I have been out for a long time and miss home. There is no other reason.” After listening, his wife walked to the loom with a knife and said sternly: “This machine is weaving. The silk is produced from silkworm cocoons and made into looms. It is only one inch long when it is accumulated one by one; and when it is accumulated one inch by one inch, it will only be ten feet or even one horse. If I cut it off today, I will lose all my previous efforts. , The time before was wasted.”

The wife went on to say: “Reading is the same. You accumulate knowledge and you should acquire new knowledge every day, so that your character will become more and more perfect. If you return halfway, what is the difference with cutting silk?”

Le Yangzi was deeply moved by what his wife said, so he went to finish school again, and did not return home for seven consecutive years.

Moral of the story

If we give up every time we do half of the work, then we will definitely fail to do anything in the end. Only by persisting to the end and completing one thing one by one can we move forward step by step and go further and further on the road to victory. Once you have set a goal, you must dare to practice and work hard to accomplish it. It is not right to just dream, and it is also wrong to give up halfway.
