ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
A gnat came down on one of the horns of a bull. It sat there for a long time. When it had rested sufficiently, it was about to fly. It turned to the bull and said, "I am going. Is that OK with you?". The bull only raised his eyes and said, "It is all the same with me. I didn't know when you came, and I won't know when you go".

THE GNAT AND THE BULL
A Gnat alighted on one of the horns of a Bull, and remained sitting there for a considerable time. When it had rested sufficiently and was about to fly away, it said to the Bull, "Do you mind if I go now?" The Bull merely raised his eyes and remarked, without interest, "It's all one to me; I didn't notice when you came, and I shan't know when you go away."
We may often be of more consequence in our own eyes than in the eyes of our neighbours.
