 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圜一­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:“因为月亮在夜晙给­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。”­
