年轻人和算命大师的故事 A Young Man and a Fortune Teller

There once lived a young man who was always unhappy and complained about his poverty.
从前有一个年轻人,他总是不开心,抱怨自己穷。

One day, he went to see a fortune teller to inquire how to become wealthy.
一天,他想去找位算命先生,问问怎么才能变富有。

The fortune teller said, “Young man, you are already wealthy now.”
算命先生说:“年轻人,你现在已经很富有了。”

“Where is my wealth?” the young man asked anxiously.
这个年轻人急切地问:“那我的财富在哪里?”

“It is with you. Your eyes are your wealth. You use them to see this world. You use them to see all the beautiful things in this world. You can read, study and learn.
“就在你身上,你的眼睛就是你的财富,你用它看世界,看世界上所有美好的事物。你还可以用它阅读、学习。”

Your hands are your wealth. You can use them to work. You can use them to hug your beloved ones.
“你的手就是你的财富,你可以用手工作,拥抱爱的人。”

Your legs are your wealth. You can go to any places…” the fortune teller said.
“你的腿就是你的财富,你可以去任何地方。” 算命先生说道。

“You call these wealth? Everyone has them,” the young man said.
年轻人反问道:“你把这些叫做财富?这些是每个人都有的。”

“These are wealth. What you have now are not what others can luckily have. Are you willing to give your eyes to me? I am willing to give you a lot of money in exchange for them,” the fortune teller said.
算命先生说:“这些就是财富,你现在拥有的这些是其他不幸的人没有的。你愿意把你的眼睛给我吗?我愿意用很多钱跟你交换。”

“No, are you crazy? I am not going to exchange my eyes for money! They are precious to me!” the young man yelled.
年轻人叫道:“你疯了吗?我不可能用我的眼睛来换钱,它们对我来说太珍贵了。”

“Precisely, these are wealth to you. You will not exchange them for money. Furthermore, although a lot of people have their wealthy things, they do not realize them or treasure them.
“准确地说,眼睛就是你的财富,你不会用它们来换钱。然而,尽管许多人都拥有珍贵的东西,但他们却意识不到那些东西的珍贵之处,不懂得珍惜。”

They complain that the world is unfair to them. Do you want to lose one of them before you will treasure them?” the fortune teller said.
“他们抱怨世界对他们不公,难道你要等到失去其中之一后才会珍惜它们吗?” 算命先生说道。

Everyone is wealthy. But we should not take it for granted. We need to treasure our wealth, take care of it and use it wisely.
大家都有财富,但我们不应该把这些财富视为理所当然,我们要珍惜这些财富,爱护它们,妥善地使用它们。

We should not overuse it because once it is gone, it is gone forever. Remember it is our wealth that we do not want to lose.
不要滥用这些财富,因为一旦你失去它们,就再也找不回来了。要记住,我们不想失去的这些东西,就是我们的财富。
