英语寓言小故事(中英文版)

The Raven and the Swan 鸦和天鹅

A RAVEN saw a Swan and desired to secure for himself the same beautiful plumage. Supposing that the Swan's splendid white color arose from his washing in the water in which he swam, the Raven left the altars in the neighborhood where he picked up his living, and took up residence in the lakes and pools. But cleansing his feathers as often a she would, he could not change their color, while through want of food he perished.

Change of habit cannot alter Nature.

这故事是说,人的本性不会随着生活方式的改变而改变。
