Mr. Fool Wants to Move the Mountains

 

0:07

There were two highmountains between the city Jizhou in


0:11

the south and the city Heyang in the north. One


0:15

was called Taihang Mountain and the other was Wangwu Mountain.


0:20

Both of the mountains were very high.


0:23

There was an old man called Mr.Fool who was nearly


0:26

90 years old lived at the foot of the mountains.


0:30

With the two high mountains just in front of


0:34

his house, he and his families had to walk a


0:38

long way around the mountains whenever they had something to


0:42

do on the other side of the mountains.


0:45

One day, Mr. Fool called all his family together to


0:49

talk about how to move the two mountains to


0:51

another place. His wife said, "An old man like you


0:56

cannot even move a small hill, not to mention the


1:00

two high mountains. Even if you can, where can you


1:04

throw so much earth and stone?” “The Bohai Sea is


1:08

big enough to contain all the earth and stone," Mr. Fool said.


1:15

So it was decided. His children started to dig the mountains,


1:20

led by the old man.


1:22

A man named Mr. Smart saw them working and tried


1:26

to stop them, saying, "You are so silly!


1:29

You're so old and weak that you can't even take


1:32

away the grass and trees. How can you move the high mountains?"


1:37

"You're wrong," Mr. Fool said with a sigh.


1:41

"Look, my sons can continue my work after my death.


1:46

When my sons die, my grandchildren will continue. So


1:51

generations after generations, there's no end. But the mountains


1:56

can't grow higher. Do you still say I can’t move them away?”


2:02

Later the Heaven God, upon learning of Mr.Fool’s story,


2:08

was greatly moved. He then ordered another god to


2:14

come down and take the two high mountains away.
