One day his father bought some pears, picking one of the largest and giving it to Kong Rong deliberately. But Kong Rong shook his head and picked up the smallest one.
一天爸爸买了一些梨子,特意捡了一个最大的给孔融,孔融却摇头不要,拿了一个最小的梨。

His dad was very curious, and asked: “Why?”

Kong Rong said: “I am younger, so I should eat the smaller pear, and brothers should eat the bigger ones.”
孔融说:“我年纪小,我吃小梨,大的给哥哥吃。”

His dad was very glad after hearing his words, but asked further: “What about your younger brother who is younger than you are?”
