● A rich Athenian was sailing with some other travellers. A violent tempest suddenly arose, and the boat capsized.

● Then, while the other passengers were trying to save themselves by swimming, the Athenian continually invoked the aid of the goddess (Athena patroness of his city), and promised after offering after offering if only she would save him.

● One of his shipwrecked companions, who swam beside him, said to him: 'Appeal to Athena by all means, but aslo move your arms!






● 有个雅典富人,与别的旅伴一块儿航海.海上风暴骤起,船被打翻了.

● 别人都在拼命泅水逃命,惟见这个富人一味乞求雅典娜(他所在的城市的庇护神)保佑,答应只要他能获救,一定献上许多祭品.

● 有一个难友游到他身边,对他说道:"你当然可以向雅典娜求助,但自己也得挥动手臂呀!"




寓意:



既乞灵于神祗,亦当奋力自救.自佑复得神佑,堪称福与天齐.一味屈从命运,不啻托庇妖魔.
