This Chinese idiom (chengyu) story depicts an ancient Chinese peasant who was in a rush to grow his rice plant. He literally pulled each plant in hope that they would be harvested soon, until he saw an astonishing scene on the fourth day... 古时候有个人,希望自己田里的禾苗长得快点,天天到田边去看。可是,一天、两天、三天,禾苗好像一点也没有长高。他就在田边焦急的转来转去,自言自语地说:“我得想个办法帮他们长。“一天,他终于想到了办法,就急忙跑到田里,把禾苗一棵一棵往高里拔。从中午一直忙到太阳落山,弄得精疲力尽。当他回到家里时,一边喘气一边对儿子说:“今天可把我累坏了,力气没白费,禾苗都长了一大截。” 他的儿子不明白是怎么回事,跑到田里一看,发现禾苗都枯死了。
