愚公移山，出自《列子·汤问》里的一篇文章，作者为战国的列御寇，叙述了愚公不畏艰难，坚持不懈，挖山不止，最终感动天帝而将山挪走的故事。the taihang and wangwu mountains, which had a periphery of seven hundred li and were a hundred thousand feet high, originally lay south of jizhou and north of heyang.the foolish old man of the north mountain, nearly ninety years of age, lived behind these mountains. he was unhappy about the fact that the mountains blocked his way to the south and he had to walk round them whenever he went our or came back, so he called the whole family together to talk about the matter. " what would you say," he said to them,"if i suggest that all of us work hard to level the two mountains, so as to open a way to places south of yu prefecture and the han river?" many voices said they agreed to the idea.
but his wife had her doubts. "with your strength," she said, "you could hardly remove a small hill like kuifu. what could you do with the taihang and wangwu mountains? besides, where could you deposit the earth and rocks.?"
"carry them to the shores of the bohai sea and north of yintu," said several people.
the old man, helped by his son and grandson who could carry things, began to break rocks and dig earth, which they carried in baskets and dustbins to the shores of the bohai sea. the seven-year-old son of a widow named jingcheng, one of the old man's neighbours, came running up to offer his help. one trip to the sea took them a long time: they left in winter and came back in summer.
