during the spring and autumn period, there was a man in the state of qin whose name was sun yang. sun yang was very expert in looking at horses and judging their worth, whatever the horse might be, he could tell whether it was good or bad at first sight. people called him bo le (bo le was the name of one of the celestial1 bodies and was fabled2 to be in charge of heavenly steeds骏马), and he was often asked to appraise3 and select horses.

one day, when sun yang was passing a place, an old horse pulling a cart loaded with salt suddenly neighed to him without stopping. he came near, and saw that it was a horse that really could cover a thousand li a day, and that the only problem with it was that it was a little too old. the old horse was pulling the heavy cart with difficulties and hardships. sun yang felt acutely that the horse was really unjustly treated, for it might have been a fine steed galloping4 on the battlefield. it was a great pity that it was pulling the cart loaded with salt without attracting public attention, which had taken the edge off its spirit and consumed its energy. when he thought of this, he was so grieved that he shed tears.

in order to help more people learn how to appraise horses so that fine horses which could cover a thousand li a day would no longer fall into oblivion, and also in order to ensure that his unique skill in judging horses would not be lost, sun yang wrote a book entitled the art of looking at horses and judging their worth, based on his experiences and knowledge accumulated over the years. the book was also illustrated5 with the pictures of various horses.

sun yang had a son who, after reading his father's the art of looking at horses and judging their worth, thought it was very easy to appraise horses. so he took the book with him to look for fine horses everywhere.

at first he searched according to the pictures in the book, and accomplished6 nothing. then he searched according to the characteristics of a toad7 fit very well the characteristics described in the book. so he happily took the toad back home, and said to his father, "father, i have found a horse that can cover a thousand li a day, only its hoofs8(蹄) are not good enough." looking at the toad(讨厌的家伙), sun yang did not know whether he should laugh or cry. knowing that his son was stupid, sun yang said humorously. "it's a pity that this horse is too fond of jumping to pull a cart." then he sighed, "that is just what we call looking for a steed with the aid of its picture."

later, people have used the set phrase "look for a steed with the aid of its picture" to refer to handling affairs mechanically in the outmoded ways without being flexible. sometimes it is also used to refer to trying to locate something by following up a clue. this set phrase originates in lumbering9 in the forest of art written by yang shen in the ming dynasty .

凉州词王翰在什么情况下写的

王翰的《凉州词二首》具体创作时间未能确证,《凉州词》是乐府歌词,是按凉州(今甘肃省河西、陇右一带)地方乐调歌唱的。这首诗地方色彩极浓。从标题看,凉州属西北边地;从内容看,葡萄酒是当时西域特产,夜光杯是西域所进,琵琶更是西域所产,胡笳更是西北流行乐器。这些无一不与西北边塞风情相关。
原文节选:
葡萄美酒夜光杯,欲饮琵琶马上催。
醉卧沙场君莫笑,古来征战几人回?
译文:
酒筵上甘醇的葡萄美酒盛满在精美的夜光杯之中,歌伎们弹奏起急促欢快的琵琶声助兴催饮,想到即将跨马奔赴沙场杀敌报国,战士们个个豪情满怀。
今日一定要一醉方休,即使醉倒在战场上又何妨?此次出征为国效力,本来就打算马革裹尸,没有准备活着回来。
《凉州词二首》是唐代诗人王翰的组诗作品。第一首诗渲染了出征前盛大华贵的酒筵以及战士们痛快豪饮的场面,表现了战士们将生死置之度外的旷达、奔放的思想感情;第二首诗抓住边塞风光景物的特点,抒写边关将士们夜闻笳声而触动的思乡之情。这两首诗意境开阔,语言华美,节奏明快,富有浪漫气息。

鸟的天堂是什么意思

鸟的天堂一指的是茂盛的大榕树,人们把它叫做“鸟的天堂”。二指地方是鸟儿理想的栖息之地。出自《鸟的天堂》,作者巴金,散文,里面主要内容是说作者巴金游玩鸟的天堂所见到的景色及其感受。
在此文中,作者以清新流畅之笔,发掘和描绘了自然胜景之美,寄托了自己美好的情思,创造出一种清丽悠远的意境。同时,作者不是孤立地描绘这“鸟的天堂”,而是把它放在南国初夏水乡的夕照、青山、塔影、波光、田畴、朝暾的联系、烘托下加以凸显的。全文虽用语简朴无华,平铺直叙,却到处呈现出如诗似画的美趣,流贯着一种祥和宁静而又生机勃勃的田园牧歌情调。

王羲之是什么朝代

王羲之(303年-361年)是东晋大臣、书法家,字逸少,琅琊临沂(今山东省临沂市)人。丹阳尹王旷的儿子,太尉郗鉴的女婿,有“书圣”之称。
凭借门荫入仕,历任秘书郎、江州刺史、会稽太守,累迁右军将军,人称“王右军”。永和九年(353年),组织兰亭雅集。撰写的《兰亭序》,成为“天下第一行书”。永和十一年(355年),称病弃官,迁居于绍兴金庭。升平五年(361年)去世,安葬于瀑布山。
善于书法,兼善隶、草、楷、行各体,精研体势,心摹手追,广采众长,备精诸体,冶于一炉,摆脱汉魏笔风,自成一家,影响深远。风格平和自然,笔势委婉含蓄,遒美健秀。在书法史上,与钟繇并称“钟王”,与其子王献之合称“二王”。李志敏评价:“王羲之的书法既表现以老庄哲学为基础的简淡玄远,又表现以儒家的中庸之道为基础的冲和。”
