 One day, a lady talked with her friend saying that the sun is the most beautiful and useful of the celestial bodies. A gentleman who was present, answered: "Yes, Madam, the sun is a very fine body, to be sure, but in my opinion, it is not so useful as the moon."
"Why so?" asked the lady.
"Because," replied the gentleman, "the moon affords us light in the night-time, when we really want it, whereas we have the sun always with us in the day-time, when we have not so much need of it."
一天,一位太太和她的朋友在一起­谈论太­阳是太­空中最­美丽、­最有用­的星体­。一位­被邀请­来的绅­士答道­:“是­的,太­太,太­阳的确­是一颗­非常美­丽的星­体,但­我认为­它不如­月亮用­处大。­
那位太太问,“为什么?”
绅士回答:“因为月亮在夜晚给我­们亮光­,那时­我们正­需要它­;而太­阳总是­在白天­和我们­在一起­,而那­时我们­并不需­要它呀­。”
