THE FOX AND THE GOAT

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
A fox fell into a well and could not get out again. Soon a thirsty goat came, and he saw the fox in the well, and he asked him, "Is the water good?" "Good?" said the Fox, "it's the best water I ever tasted in all my life. Come down and try it yourself." The goat only thought of drinking water because he was very thirsty. So, he jumped in at once. When he finished drinking, he looked about because he wanted to get out of the well but could not find a way out. Then, the fox said, "I have an idea. You stand on your hind legs, put your forelegs against the side of the well. Then, I will climb on to your back, then I will step on your horns, and get out. When I am out, I will help you out, too." The goat did what the fox asked, and the fox climbed on to his back on got out of the well. Then he walked away. The goat called after him and said, "You promised to help me!" The fox replied, "If you were clever enough, you wouldn't have got into the well without making certain that you could get out again."

THE FOX AND THE GOAT
A Fox fell into a well and was unable to get out again. By and by a thirsty Goat came by, and seeing the Fox in the well asked him if the water was good. "Good?" said the Fox, "it's the best water I ever tasted in all my life. Come down and try it yourself." The Goat thought of nothing but the prospect of quenching his thirst, and jumped in at once. When he had had enough to drink, he looked about, like the Fox, for some way of getting out, but could find none. Presently the Fox said, "I have an idea. You stand on your hind legs, and plant your forelegs firmly against the side of the well, and then I'll climb on to your back, and, from there, by stepping on your horns, I can get out. And when I'm out, I'll help you out too." The Goat did as he was requested, and the Fox climbed on to his back and so out of the well; and then he coolly walked away. The Goat called loudly after him and reminded him of his promise to help him out: but the Fox merely turned and said, "If you had as much sense in your head as you have hair in your beard you wouldn't have got into the well without making certain that you could get out again."
Look before your leap.
