Help the Young Shoots Grow
To Pull up the Seedlings to Help Them Grow
Once upon a time, there was an old farmer who planted a plot of rice. After he planted the seedlings, every day he went to the field to watch the seedlings grow. He saw the young shoots break through the soil and grow taller each day, but still, he thought they were growing too slowly. Eventually he got impatient with the young plants and suddenly he hit upon an idea that one by one, he pulled up the young plants by half an inch. The next early morning, the young man couldn’t wait to check his “achievement”, but he was heart-broken to see all the pulled-up young plants dying.
There was a man in the State of Song who had an impatient disposition.
Day and night he longed for the seedlings in the field to grow tall and strong quickly.
But the seedlings grew very slowly,not as quickly as he hoped.
One day, he hit upon a good idea.
He sneaked to the field andpulled each seedling up a little bit from the soil.
Seeing that all these edlings in the field were taller than before, he felt very pleased with himself.
He went home. Though all worn out, he told the members of his family happily:
"I worked for a whole day today.
How tired I am! But the seedlings in the field have grown a lot taller."
When his son heard that the seedlings had grown taller, he hurried to the field to take a look.
Oh, what a mess!Instead of growing taller, the seedlings had all started to wither.
