Chinese Idiom Story Ba Miao Zhu Zhang

Once there was a farmer, in the spring he grew a lot of seedlings in the field, hoping that he could harvest them in the autumn.


从前有一个农夫,春天的时候,他在田地里种了很多禾苗,希望秋天的时候可以收获。


几天过去了,禾苗还是那么矮。他非常着急,心里想:禾苗长得太慢了,我得想个办法,让它们快点长高。他每天吃不好,睡不好,终于想出了一个办法。于是他决定去试一试。


天一亮,他就来到了田地里,把禾苗一棵一棵的往上拔高一截,一直忙活到太阳落山,他才筋疲力尽地回到家。一进家门,他就兴奋地告诉家人:“今天可把我累坏了,我想了一个好办法,让禾苗长高了不少。”


儿子不明白是怎么回事,跑到了田里,看了一眼就愣住了:原来绿油油的禾苗,全都死了。


这个故事告诉我们:如果违反事物的发展规律,急于求成,反而容易坏事。太过心急往往会功亏一篑,一步一步脚踏实地才能获得成功。

Once there was a farmer, in the spring he grew a lot of seedlings in the field, hoping that he could harvest them in the autumn.


A few days passed, but the seedlings were still so short. He was really worried, he thought to himself: the seedlings are growing so slowly, I need to think of a way to make it grow faster. During this time, he didn’t eat well, didn’t sleep well, until he finally came up with a method. So he decided to give it a try.


As soon as the day broke, he went out on the field and pulled up the seedlings a bit, one by one, he was busy all day until the sun went down behind the mountains, then he went home, all worn out. As soon as he passed through the door to his house, he told his family in excitement: “Today I am tired, I thought of a way to make the seedling grow quite much higher.”


The son didn’t understand what was going on, he ran into the field, and looked at it and then just stared blankly: the previously green and lively seedlings had all died.


This story tells us that if we violate the proper way of how things should properly develop, we are eager to be successful, but it’s easy to fail. Too much urgency will lead to failure, we need to take things step-by-step to be able to succeed.



Di zaman dahulu kala ada seorang petani, di musim semi dia menanam banyak bibit di ladang, dan dia berharap dapat memanennya di musim gugur.


Beberapa hari berlalu, akan tetapi bibit-bibit tersebut masih saja pendek. Dia sangat khawatir, dan berpikir: bibit-bibit ini tumbuh terlalu lambat, saya perlu memikirkan cara untuk membuatnya tumbuh lebih cepat. Selama waktu ini, dia tidak dapat makan dengan baik, tidak bisa tidur nyenyak, sampai akhirnya dia menemukan sebuah ide. Jadi dia memutuskan untuk mencobanya.


Begitu hari mulai pagi, dia keluar dari ladang dan menarik bibit sedikit, satu demi satu, dia sibuk sepanjang hari sampai matahari terbenam di balik gunung, lalu dia pulang dengan lelahnya. Ketika dia memasuki rumahnya, dia memberi tahu keluarganya dengan gembira: “Hari ini saya capek sekali, saya mendapatkan sebuah ide yang baik yang dapat membuat bibit tumbuh cukup tinggi.”


Putranya tidak mengerti apa yang sedang terjadi, dia berlari ke ladang, dan melihatnya, lalu menatap dengan tatapan kosong: bibit-bibit yang semula berwarna hijau cerah semuanya mati.


Kisah ini memberi tahu kita bahwa jika kita memaksakan kehendak kita untuk menumbuhkan sesuatu di luar batas normal, terburu-buru ingin mencapai kesuksesan, maka akan mudah untuk gagal. Terlalu banyak terburu-buru akan mengarah pada kegagalan, kita perlu melakukan sesuatu langkah-per-langkah agar dapat berhasil.
