在繁忙的纽约,曾经发生过如此惊人的事情。
 
 
星期五的晚上,一个贫穷的年轻艺人仍然像往常一样站在地铁站门口,专心致志地拉着他的小提琴。虽然音乐很棒,但人们很快就回家过周末了。在这种情况下,许多人放慢了脚步,往年轻人的帽子里塞了一些钱。
 
 
第二天,年轻的艺人又像往常一样准时来到地铁门口,把他的礼帽摘下来很优雅地放在地上。与前一天不同的是,他拿出一张大纸,把它放在地上,并在上面放了一些石头。然后他调好小提琴,开始演奏。听起来似乎更愉快。
 
 
不久,年轻的小提琴手周围站满了人,人们都被铺在地上的那张纸上的字吸引了。上面写着:“昨天晚上,有一位叫乔治-桑的先生错将一份很重要的东西放在我的礼帽里。请尽快来认领。”
 
 
看到这个情景,人群之间引起一阵骚动,都想知道这是一份什么样的东西。过了半小时左右,一位中年男人急急忙忙跑过来,拨开人群就冲到小提琴手面前,抓住他的肩膀语无伦次的说:“啊!你真的来了。我知道你是个诚实的人,一定会来的。”
 
 
年轻的小提琴手冷静地问:“您是乔治-桑先生吗?”
 
 
那人点了点头。小提琴手又问:“您丢了什么东西吗?”
 
 
”彩票。这是彩票。
 
 
小提琴手于是掏出一张奖票,上面还醒目地写着乔治-桑,小提琴手举着彩票。“是吗?”
 
 
乔治-桑迅速地点点头,抢过彩票吻了一下,然后又抱着小提琴手在地上跳起了舞。
 
 
故事是这样的:乔治·桑是一名办公室职员。他几天前买了一张银行发行的彩票。颁奖礼昨天开始,他获得了50万美元的奖金。因此,他下班后感到非常高兴,觉得音乐是如此美妙,他拿出50美元,把帽子放在帽子里。然而,彩票也被扔了进去。这位小提琴家是一所艺术学院的学生,曾计划在维也纳进修。他已经订了机票,那天早上就会飞。然而,当他清理的时候,他发现了彩票。他以为船主会回来找它,于是取消了航班,回到了给他买彩票的地方。
 
 
后来有人问小提琴手:“你当时那么需要一笔学费,为了赚够这笔学费,你不得不每天到地铁站拉提琴。那你为什么不自己拿那张彩票呢?”
 
 
小提琴手说:“虽然我没钱,但我活得很快乐;但如果我失去了诚实,我不会永远快乐。
 
 
通过我们的生活,我们可以得到很多,失去很多。但是诚实应该与我们同在。如果以虚伪、不诚实的方式为人处世,也许能获得暂时的“成功”。然而,从长远来看,我们将是一个失败者。这种人就像山上的水。开始的时候,它高高在上,但是渐渐地,它一点一点地下降,失去了上升的机会。

In the busy city of New York, such an astonishing thing that ever happened.
 
On a friday night, a poor young artist stood at the gate of the subway station, playing his violin. Though the music was great, people were quickly going home for the weekend. In this case, many of them slowed down their paces and put some money into the hat of the young man.
 
The next day, the young artist came to the gate of the subway station, and put his hat on the ground gracefully. Different than the day before, he took out a large piece of paper and laid it on the ground and put some stones on it. Then he adjusted the violin and began playing. It seemed more pleasant to listen to.
 
Before long, the young violinist was surrounded with people, who were all attracted by the words on that paper. It said, "Last night, a gentleman named George Sang put an important thing into my hat by mistaken. Please come to claim it soon."
 
Seeing this, it caused a great excitement and people wondered what it could be. After about half an hour, a middle-aged man ran there in a hurry and rushed through the crowd to the violinist and grabbed his shoulders and said, "Yes, it's you. You did come here. I knew that you're an honest man and would certainly come here."
 
The young violinist asked calmly, "Are you Mr. George Sang?"
 
The man nodded. The violinist asked, "Did you lose something?"
 
"Lottery. It's lottery," said the man.
 
The violinist took out a lottery ticket on which George Sang's name was seen. "Is it?" he asked.
 
George nodded promptly and seized the lottery ticket and kissed it, then he danced with the violinist.
 
The story turned out to be this: George Sang is an office clerk. He bought a lottery ticket issued by a bank a few days ago. The awards opened yesterday and he won a prize of $500,000. So he felt very happy after work and felt the music was so wonderful, that he took out 50 dollars and put in the hat. However the lottery ticket was also thrown in. The violinist was a student at an Arts College and had planned to attend advanced studies in Vienna. He had booked the ticket and would fly that morning. However when he was cleaning up he found the lottery ticket. Thinking that the owner would return to look for it, he cancelled the flight and came back to where he was given the lottery ticket.
 
Later someone asked the violinist: "At that time you were in needed to pay the tuition fee and you had to play the violin in the subway station every day to make the money. Then why didn't you take the lottery ticket for yourself?"
 
The violinist said, "Although I don't have much money, I live happily; but if I lose honesty I won't be happy forever."
 
Through our lives, we can gain a lot and lose so much. but being honest should always be with us. If we bear ourselves in a deceptive and dishonest way, we may succeed temporarily. however, from the long-term view, we will be a loser. such kind of people are just like the water on the mountain. it stands high above the masses at the beginning, but gradually it comes down inch by inch and loses the chance of going up.
