Wang Yang Bu Lao

 

亡羊补牢 (wáng yáng bǔ láo)

Wang Yang Bu Lao

 

A man who raised sheep once noticed there was a hole in the walls of his sheepfold. But he neglected to repair it. A few days later, several sheep were missing. His friend advised him: “It is not too late to mend the sheepfold.” “Wang Yang Bu Lao” or “Mending the sheepfold after the sheep have been stolen” advises us that even though we have suffered a loss, it is never too late to take steps to prevent further losses.
 

 

古时候,有一个人,家里有一大群羊,可是有一天羊儿少了一只,他没在意,可羊儿不停的失踪。他的朋友告诉他,现在修理断了的栅栏还不晚。这个成语告诉我们遇到事情要及时处理,不要等到事情越来越严重了才去处理。
