路的旁边还有路


老和尚问小和尚: “如果遇到往前走是死,往后退也是死的时候,你怎么办?” 小和尚说: “ 我往左边或者右边走。”

人生路上遇到进退两难的时候,换个角度想,就会发现路的旁边还有其它路。

There are other ways beside the road

An old monk asked a young Monk: "If you encountered a situation where going forward would mean death, and going backward would also means death, what you would do?” The young monk said:" I’d leave the road and go to the left or the right.”

If in the course of life a dilemma is encountered, by taking a different viewpoint, there will be other ways out of the dilemma.
