成语故事:愚公移山 Mr.Fool the Mountain Mover

愚公移山

yú gōng yí shān

Mr. Fool the mountain mover

It may sound foolish to try and move a mountain, but a famous fable from ancient China tells the story of persistent people who show this not as foolish as you might think.

凭一己之力搬运高山?听起来很愚蠢。但是中国古代著名的神话寓言故事“愚公移山”告诉我们,坚持不懈的去做一件事一点也不愚蠢。

Literal meaning: Mr. Fool moves mountains.

Explanation: to be consistent and persistent in your efforts to do something

E.g

我希望你有耐心和毅力,无论这件事多困难,你都能像愚公移山一样完成。

wǒ xī wàng nǐ yǒu nài xīn hé yì lì ,wú lùn zhè jiàn shì duō kùn nán ,nǐdōu néng xiàng yú gōng yí shān yī yàng wán chéng .

I hope you have patience and stamina; regardless of how difficult something may seem, you can do it with the persistence of Mr. Fool, the mountain mover.
