  1古时候,有一个人叫养由基,很擅长射箭。 
  In ancient times, there was a skilled archer called Yang Youji.

  2 养由基在离开柳树一百步的地方射柳叶,射一百次,一百次射中。
  He was once tested to hit the willow leaves in a hundred paces away, and hit the target one hundred times without a single miss.

  3 有一个人走过来,说:“我可以教你如何射箭了。”
  A man came and told him, “I can teach you how to shoot an arrow.”

  4 养由基奇怪地说:“我已经很擅长射箭了啊。”
  “But I have been very much skilled in shooting arrows,” Yang Youji wondered.

  5 这个人说:“你虽然能射中一百次,但一百零一次,一百零二次呢?你还有力气吗?不知道在适当的时候休息,一会儿就一箭也射不中了。”
  The man said, “Although you can hit the target one hundred times, what about the 101st and 102nd? Do you still have the strength to do so? You’ll miss every shot if you don’t have a rest at the right time.”
