Once a circle missed a wedge. The circle wanted to be whole, so it went around looking for its missing piece. But because it was incomplete and therefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. It chatted with worms. It enjoyed the sunshine. It found lots of different pieces, but none of them fit. So it left them all by the side of the road and kept on searching. Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. It was so happy. Now it could be whole, with nothing missing. It incorporated the missing piece into itself and began to roll. Now that it was a perfect circle, it could roll very fast, too fast to notice flowers or talk to the worms. When it realized how different the world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its found piece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.

从前有个圆圈,它丢失了一小段。它想变得完整,于是它到处寻找它所丢失的那部分。由于不完整,它只能滚的非常慢。在路上,它羡慕过花儿,它与虫子聊过天,它享受了阳光的照耀。它遇到过很多不同的小段,可是没有一个适合它。所以它把它们丢在路边,继续寻找。有一天,圆圈找到了可以与它完美结合的一小段,它非常高兴。它现在终于完整了,不缺任何东西了。它把丢失的那段装到自己身上,然后滚了起来。它现在是个完整的圆圈了,它可以滚的很快,,快到忽视了花儿,快到没有时间和虫子们说话。当它意识到由于它滚的太快,世界变得如此的不同时,它便停了下来,把找到的那段卸下丢在路边,慢慢地滚走了。

The lesson of the story, I suggested, was that in some strange sense we are more whole when we are missing something. The man who has everything is in some ways a poor man. He will never know what it feels like to yearn, to hope, to nourish his soul with the dream of something better. He will never know the experience of having someone who loves him give him something he has always wanted or never had.

我想这个故事告诉我们,从某种奇怪的意义上说,当我们缺少什么东西时,我们反而是更完整的。一个拥有一切的人在某些方面也是个穷人,他永远不会知道什么是渴望、什么是期待;永远不知道用渴求更美好的东西来充实他的灵魂。他永远不会知道一个爱他人送给他一样他所梦寐以求的东西时是怎样的一种感觉。
