有一只鹿每天都对自己说:“我是这片森林里最好看的鹿。我挺起的胸膛就是力量的象征。其他动物肯定也喜欢我漂亮的犄角。”

But he did not like his legs and hooves. "My legs are narrow, and my hooves are ugly. They do not satisfy me."

但它不喜欢自己的腿和蹄子。“我的腿这么细,蹄子这么丑,想到这就不开心。”

One day, the deer saw a big dog. The deer made some noise and disturbed the dog. The dog woke up and chased him. The deer felt terror. He screamed. He did not want to be a victim, so he ran into the forest. His strong legs helped him run fast. His pale brown hooves were hard, so they were not sensitive to rough rocks. However, his horns got caught in branches, slowing him down. His large chest could not fit between thick trees.

有一天,它看见一只大猎狗并把它惊醒了。狗开始追它,鹿感到很害怕,尖叫起来。它不想成为狗的盘中餐,所以它跑进了林子。他强壮的腿让它健步如飞,而它那双淡棕色蹄子因为坚硬而不会被地上的石头所伤。然而,它的犄角却被树枝卡住了,并因此减缓了逃命的速度。它那挺起的胸膛在茂密的林子里也帮不上什么忙。

The deer estimated that he ran for an hour. He felt like he was running a marathon. In the end, the deer escaped the threat of the dog. He sat in the shade of a tree. "That was almost a disaster! I almost did not escape because of my chest and horns. My legs and hooves saved me." As a consequence, the deer learned to honor his fast legs and have confidence in his strong hooves. "Pretty things only supplement important things," he thought.

跑了约1个小时之后,它感觉自己就像是跑了一场马拉松。最后,它逃脱了狗的追捕,坐在一片树荫下休息。“差点就没命了!我差点因为我的犄角和胸膛丧命。是我的腿和蹄子救了我。”从此,他学会欣赏自己健步如飞的双腿和强健的蹄子了。“美丽的东西只是锦上添花而已,”它心想。
