        There once was a master who went to India. In those times, we didn’t have airplanes or many other kinds of modern transportation as now. So the master went to India on foot.He had never been to India before; perhaps he came from Persia(波斯). And when he got there, he saw a lot of fruit.In India they have plenty of fruit to sell, but much of it is expensive,because they can’t grow much due to the water situation.He saw a big basket of very red,long fruit.And it was the cheapest in the shop.A painful experience(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
 
  So he went up and asked,“How much is it per kilo?”
  And the shopkeeper said,“Two rupees.”Two rupees in India is nothing;it’s like dirt.So he bought a whole kilogram of the fruit and started eating it.He ate some of it.Oh,my God!His eyes watered,his mouth watered;his eyes were burning,his head was burning;and his face became red.As he coughed and choked and gasped for breath,he jumped up and down,saying,“Ah!Ah!Ah!”
  But he still kept eating the fruit!Some people looking at him shook their heads and said,“You’re crazy,man.Those are chilies!You can’t eat so many;they’re not good for you!People use them as a condiment,but only a little bit to put into food for taste.You can’t just eat them by the handful like that;they’re not fruit!”
  But the stupid master said,“No,I can’t stop!I paid money for them,and now I’ll eat them.It’s my money!”
  And you think that master was stupid,right?Similarly,we sometimes do a lot of things like that.We still continue just because we’ve put money,time,effort and love into it.Just like the man who ate the chilies and felt so bad but couldn’t stop because he didn’t want to waste the money he had paid.
  So even if you’ve lost something,let it go and move on.That’s better than continuing to lose.
