Don't Be Fooled by the Superficies
In the picture, there are two rabbits harvesting carrots. The big rabbit chooses a big bundle of flourishing leaves with exultation while the small rabbit holds a small bundle of wretched leaves, totally frustrated. Actually the sizes of the carrots under the ground are contrary to the sizes of the leaves seen above the ground.
The picture mainly tells us two morals. For one thing, one should not be fooled by the surface of things. Instead, he should investigate the whole thing before a conclusion is drawn finally. If the small rabbit digs its carrot out, it would not feel discouraged any more. For another, if the small rabbit finally feels disappointed and gives up the carrot just because of its small leaves, it would never know that its carrot is much bigger than its peer's. One should always hold determination in mind no matter what happens if he wants to achieve his goal. So long as he is persistent, he will finally get his reward.
In my opinion, one must not judge anything from its appearance. If one holds an objective attitude and never gives up halfway, he is sure to win in the end despite numerous defeats.
