表达方式

皇帝梦到自己所有的牙齿都掉光了。于是,一觉醒来,他召来一位智者为他解梦。智者说:“陛下,您很不幸,只要掉一颗牙,就预示着您会失去一个亲人。”

皇帝听了非常生气:“你这个大胆的狂徒,竟然敢在这里胡说八道,重打一百大板!”

然后,皇帝又下令找来另一位智者。智者听完皇帝的诉说后说:“陛下,您真幸福啊!您做的梦非常吉利,意味着您的寿命比您亲人的寿命还要长。”

皇帝非常高兴,令人奖赏这位智者一百两黄金。

这位智者走出宫殿的时候,一位太监很不解,问他说:“真没想到,同样是对一个梦的解说,为什么他受到惩罚,而你却得到奖赏呢?”

第二位智者语重心长地说:“道理非常简单,所有的事物都是由表达方式决定的。”
