During the Warring States Period, there was a young man in the State of Yan. He heard that the people in Handan, the capital of the State of Zhao, walked very gracefully, so he decided to go to study. He came to Handan in a turbulent manner. Sure enough, he saw the people on the street walking very elegantly, walking with great manners, and showing a graceful demeanor in every gesture.

战国时期,燕国有个少年,听说赵国都城邯郸的人走路姿势非常优美,就决定前去学习。他风尘仆仆地来到邯郸,果然见到大街上的人走路姿势十分优雅,走起路来仪态万千,举手投足间都流露出翩翩风度。

Zhànguó shíqí, yàn guóyǒu gè shàonián, tīng shuō zhào guó dūchéng hándān de rén zǒulù zīshì fēicháng yōuměi, jiù juédìng qián qù xuéxí. Tā fēngchén pú pū de lái dào hándān, guǒrán jiàn dào dàjiē shàng de rén zǒulù zīshì shífēn yōuyǎ, zǒu qǐ lù lái yítài wàn qiān, jǔshǒutóuzú jiān dōu liúlù chū piānpiān fēngdù.

 

The young man hurriedly followed the pedestrians on the road to imitate. When others stepped on their left feet, he followed with their left feet; when others stepped on their right feet, he followed with their right feet. But after a few days of learning, he couldn’t learn it at all, and the more he walked, the more awkward his posture was.

少年赶紧跟着路上的行人模仿起来,人家迈左脚,他跟着迈左脚;人家迈右脚,他也跟着迈右脚。可是学了几天,他却怎么也学不会,而且越走越别扭,姿势比以前更难看了。

Shàonián gǎnjǐn gēnzhe lùshàng de xíngrén mófǎng qǐlái, rénjiā mài zuǒ jiǎo, tā gēnzhe mài zuǒ jiǎo; rénjiā mài yòu jiǎo, tā yě gēnzhe mài yòu jiǎo. Kěshì xuéle jǐ tiān, tā què zěnme yě xué bù huì, érqiě yuè zǒu yuè bièniu, zīshì bǐ yǐqián gèng nánkànle.

For three months, he practiced diligently every day, but he never learned the walking posture of the Handan people. Instead, he forgot his original way of walking. In the end, the young man didn’t know how to walk at all, so he had to crawl back to the state of Yan.

三个月里,他每天刻苦练习,却始终没有学会邯郸人的走路姿势,反而把自己原来的走路方式也忘得精光。最后,少年彻底不知道该怎么走路了,只好爬着回到了燕国。

Sān gè yuè lǐ, tā měitiān kèkǔ liànxí, què shǐzhōng méiyǒu xuéhuì hándān rén de zǒulù zīshì, fǎn’ér bǎ zìjǐ yuánlái de zǒulù fāngshì yě wàng dé jīngguāng. Zuìhòu, shàonián chèdǐ bù zhīdào gāi zěnme zǒulùle, zhǐhǎo pázhe huí dàole yàn guó.
