Once there was a king. He likes to write stories, but his stories were not good. As people were afraid of him, they all said his stories were good.
One day the king showed his stories to a famous writer.
He waited the writer to praise these stories. But the writer said his stories were so bad that he should throw them into fire. The king got very angry with him and sent him to prison.
After some time, the king set him free. Again he showed him some of his new stories and asked what he thought of them.
After reading them, the writer at once turned to the soldiers and said: “ Take me back to prison, please.”
Once there was a little ant. She wanted to get married, but she only wanted to marry the strongest creature.
She wanted to marry the strongest creature, but she didn’t know who the strongest creature is.
She saw the wind blow houses down. So she thought the wind was the strongest creature. She wanted to marry the wind.
But the wind told the little ant that ht wasn’t the strongest creature. There was a tower in the forest. He had stood there for a thousand years against his force.
The tower was the strongest creature.
“Why do you want to marry me?” the wind asked.
“Because you are the strongest creature in the world. You are strongest than the wind.” said the ant.
“You are right. I’m strongest than the wind. But I’m not the strongest creature in the world. Look, how I’m damaged! Can’t you guess who has done this to me? It’s you, ants.”
At last, the little ant married her own kind. Because they were the strongest creatures.

Chunyu Kun (淳于髡) lived in the state of Qi (齐国) during the Warring States Period (战国,475-221 BC).He was wise, humorous and eloquent. He skillfully advised the king on many occasions and successfully went to many states as an envoy.
In the year 349 BC, the State of Chu (楚国) dispatched a large force to attack Qi.
The king of Qi sent Chunyu Kun to the state of Zhao (赵国) to ask for help, with a lot of valuable gifts.
The king of Zhao accpeted the gifts gladly and sent a hundred thousand troops to help Qi.
The king of Chu withdrew his army that very night as soon as he got the news.
The king of Qi was released and pleased with Chunyu Kun. He set a banquet for celebration.
During the meal, the king asked Chunyu Kun, How much wine can you drink before youre drunk, Sir?
Knowing the king had a bad habit of drinking all night, Chunyu Kun decided to take this chance to admonish the king. So he replied, I get drunk when I drink ten litres or hundred.
Puzzled, the king askked, Since you are drunk after ten litres, how can you finish another ninty litres?
Chunyu Kun then explained that he could drink different amounts of wine under different conditions. He said, This occurs to me that when you drink to your limit, you get so drunk that you lose your sense; once joy reaches its height, then its sorrows turn. This is the rule for everything. Whatever you do, you are bound to end up in the opposite direction when you exceed the limits.本文来源：http://www.diffuseuk.com/lizhigushi/21538.html
