Don't go this way, the old man said. "Beware. The paths are not clear. It's easy to become lost. "

“別走這條路,”老人說,“小心點。這條路很難走,容易迷路。"

But the young man disagreed with the old man and bragged that he had a perfect understanding of the park. "I studied maps of this area," he told him. "I believe I have a thorough knowledge of these trails. I won't become lost. "

但年輕人對老人的提醒不以為意,並吹噓說自己有多麽了解這個公園。“我研究過這個地區的地圖,”他告訴他,“我相信自己對這些小路了如指掌。我不會迷路的。"

The old man listened to the young man and then admonished him for his pride.

老人聽了之後對這個傲慢的年輕人提出了勸告。

每當他必須在一條容易或複雜的路線中作出選擇時,他總是選擇較困難的路線。此外,他不知道自己要往哪個方向走。過了一會兒,他決定回家。因為他穿越荒野的路線非常迂回,所以他不知道自己身在何處。
