得过且过【dé guò qiě guò】

Recommended Posts

Once there was a bird called Hanhao Niao who lived in the Wutai Mountain. Summer was the time they became plump, and they often showed off to others and said, “How beautiful I am!” They spent all the time playing and never built their nests, when winter arrived, their furs fell off and were no longer beautiful. They hide in the stone at night when the sun came out, they comforted themselves by saying, “It’s okay, it’s okay.
