A miser sold all that he had and bought a lump of gold, which he buried in a  hole in the ground by the side of an old wall and went to look at daily.

一个守财奴卖掉所有财产买了一坨金子,他把它埋在旧墙跟下的一个洞里,每天都要去看一眼。

 One of  his workmen observed his frequent visits to the spot and decided to watch his  movements. He soon discovered the secret of the hidden treasure, and digging  down, came to the lump of gold, and stole it.

他的一个工人发现他经常去那,决定跟踪他的行踪。工人很快发现了这个埋藏宝物的秘密,他把金子挖出来,偷走了。

The Miser, on his next visit,  found the hole empty and began to tear his hair and to make loud lamentations. A  neighbor, seeing him overcome with grief and learning the cause, said, "Pray do  not grieve so; but go and take a stone, and place it in the hole, and fancy that  the gold is still lying there.It will do you quite the same service; for when  the gold was there, you had it not, as you did not make the slightest use of  it."

 守财奴下次去看的时候发现只剩下一个空洞,他扯着头发痛哭起来。一个邻居看他那么悲痛,询问了缘由,然后说“别再难过了,只需要去搬块石头放到洞里,想象金子还埋在那里。效果是一样的。因为金子在洞里,你没有让它发挥作用,那么你也并没拥有它。”
