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。” Related post: 一个事实，两个说法 Technorati Tags: 表达方式 智者 解梦 Help spread the word!
