Stand by a tree stump waiting for a hare
There is a farmer in the Song Dynasty who is digging in the fields. Suddenly, he saw a hare screaming out from the grass next to him, slamming into the tree stump on the edge of the field, and he fell there and did not move. The peasant walked over and saw: the rabbit died. Because it runs too fast, it knocks the neck. The peasant was very happy. He had no strength to spend, and he had a fat and big hare.
He thought to himself; if he could get to the hare every day, the days would be better. Since then, he is no longer willing to work hard. Every day, he put his hoe on his side and lay in front of the tree, waiting for the second and third hare to hit the tree. There are so many cheap things in the world. Of course, the peasants did not pick up the dead hare again, and his field was ridiculous.
This idiom satirizes those who just wait for a stroke of luck, rather than making efforts to obtain what they need.
