My story is about an old man moving two big mountains. I learnt it on Chinese class.
There was an old man. His name was Yu Gong. There were two big mountains in front of1 his house. It was difficult for people to go from one side of the mountain to the other, so he decided to move them away. He and his sons worked hard every day on the mountains. Some people said to him, "Hi, Yu Gong, give up. It will take too long.2"But he did not stop. He said, "My sons, and my grandsons, and my grand-son’s sons will keep working even if I die."
A god heard this and asked an-other god to move the mountains away. This story tells us that if we are determined enough to do something, we can be successful.3
