1.对牛弹琴(cast pearls before swine)

During the Warring States Period, there was a musician named Gongming Yi, who playedmusical instruments very well.

战国时代,有一个叫公明仪的音乐家,他很会弹琴。

There were a great number of people fond of listening to him play, and respected him very much.

很多人都喜欢听他弹琴,人们很敬重他。

One day, Gongming Yi saw a cow when he was having fun in the countryside.

一天,公明仪在郊外游玩时,看到了一头牛。

He thought, "Everybody compliments my music. Why don't I play some music for this cow?"

他想:大家都赞扬我的琴技,不如我给牛也弹一曲吧!

He played a piece of elegant quaint music for the cow, but the cow just kept grazing the grass with its head down.

他给牛弹奏了一曲古雅的曲子,牛埋头吃草不理他。

He played another piece of joyful music, but the cow still kept its head down to graze the grass and totally ignored him.

他又弹奏了一曲欢快的曲子,牛依然埋头吃草不理他。

Gongming Yi was so disappointed and started to question his ability.

公明仪拿出自己的全部本领, 结果牛还是不理他。公明仪非常失望,开始怀疑自己的琴技。

A passerby said to him,"It's not because your ability is bad. It is because the cow can notunderstand music at all."

路人说:“不是你弹的琴不好,而是牛根本听不懂啊!”
