成语故事《Mr. Fool》

Mr. Fool 

There were two mountains between Jizhou in the south and Heyang in the north. Both of them were very high. An old man, called Mr. Fool, lived in the north of the mountain with his family. He was nearly ninety years old. Because of these two high mountains, the whole family had to walk a long way from one side to the other side of the mountains.

One day, Mr. Fool called all his family together to talk about moving the two mountains to other place. All of them agreed. So it was decided. His children started to dig the mountains with him. 

The next day, a man called Smart came and said: “ Why did you do that? These two mountains are so high and you are so old and weak! How can you move the mountains?” Mr. Fool laughed and said: “It’s not difficult at all! Look! Those two mountains are still there, but I have my children, and my children will have their children, generations after generations, there’s no end. I believe someday the mountains will be moved.”
