The well of inspiration has dried up.Creative well has dried up.
Jiang Yan lived during the Liang dynasty of the Northern and Southern Dynasties Period, in the area now known as Henan province.
Although he came from a poor family, he as extremely hard working, and so became a high-level civil official.
Jiang Yan was very talented in the area of literature. Both his poems and his essays were outstanding, and he was known by nearly all the scholars of his time.
Jiang Yan once had a dream that a man came to him and said, "My name is Guo Pu. One of my pens has been here with your for several years. Please give it back to me now."
In his pocket, Jiang Yan found a multi-colored pen, which he returned to Guo Po.
As Jiang Yan grew older,the poems and essays that he wrote were not as good as those he had written when he was younger.
Everyone said that when Jiang Yan gave away his multi-colored pen, he used up the last of his talent.
英文中与“江郎才尽”意义相近的表达是“The well of inspiration has dried up.”这是一个很有趣的表达方式，也很形象，就是说“灵感的源泉干涸了”(“well”有“井”的意思)，也可以说“Creative well has dried up.”两个表达方式是一样的，所以当你想说自己没有才思了，有点江郎才尽的感觉的时候，就可以说“My well of inspiration has dried up.”或者“My creative well has dried up.”
(1)What to do when your inspiration has dried up?(当你江郎才尽的时候，该怎么办呢?)
(2)We may feel that we have nothing fresh or original to contribute, as though the well of inspiration has dried up.(我们可能会觉得没有任何新鲜的创意才思，就像是江郎才尽了。)
(3)Quickly we jump to fear or worry, afraid that our creative will surely dry up.(很快的我们就会变得害怕担忧，担心自己会江郎才尽。)
Covering One's Ears While Stealing a Bell
Mr. Wang thinks he is clever, but he always does [en]foolish
One day he sees a beautiful bell at the top of a door. "Oh! How nice! I will take it home." He thinks, "What can I do?" After a while he has a "good" idea. "Aha! I have an idea now. I can plug my ears. Then I will not hear the ring when I take off the bell."
Then he does so. But as soon as he takes off the bell, the owner opens the door. "What are you doing?" the owner says angrily.
At the time when Fan, a nobleman of the state of Jin, became a fugitive, a commoner found a bell and wanted to carry it off on his back.
But the bell was too big for him.
[/en]When he tried to knock it into pieces with a hammer there was a loud clanging sound. [/en]
He was afraid that someone will hear the noise and take the bell from him, so he immediatelystopped his own ears.
To worry about other people hearing the noise is understandable, but to worry about himself hearing the noise (as if stopping his own ears would prevent other people from hearing) is absurd.
