“YOU know, these cups bring to mind a story I heard,” Mary said.1

She poured some tea. There were four of them and there were four completely different cups on the table.

“I heard there was a teacher who took all his students for tea. They were surprised that all the cups on the table were different. They all took a cup and started drinking their tea, each looking at the cups of the others. The teacher said: “Do you notice your behavior? You are all looking at each other’s teacup and some of you even envy (羡慕) the finer cups of others.

“I put the different cups here on purpose. Life is like this tea. You all have the same thing in your cups – tea. And yet you cannot truly enjoy it in your envy of another’s cup. You forget to enjoy your own life when you envy someone else’s life.

So now, taste your own tea. Does it matter from which cup it came from?”

Mary finished telling her story and they all sat in silence for a while, enjoying their tea. 2 And it really did not matter one bit from which teacup they drank.

Key words

behavior n. 行为

(a way of acting)

She refused to work closely with anyone and was fired for bad behavior.

on purpose 故意地

(deliberately, often in a bad way)

She stepped on my foot on purpose, not by accident.

matter v. 要紧

(to be of importance, concern)

It doesn’t matter if you’re late. We’ll wait for you.

Sentence bank

1.释义:你知道,这些杯子让我想起了我曾经听到过的一个故事。

语法:bring to mind想起,比remember更具有英语味道。

I can’t seem to bring to mind her address.

2.释义:玛丽讲完故事后,他们都安静地坐了会儿,细细品味起自己杯中的茶来。

词汇:silence形容人时表示“沉默,不说话”;形容环境时表示“寂静”。

Silence is golden.

Share your thoughts

我们每个人都被赋予了同一件东西,那就是生命。不要一味羡慕别人拥有什么,最重要的是品味自己生命中的各种滋味。
