解释 ( paraphrase )
前辈人终止栽培了树木,后来的人就能在大树阴下乘凉。
这条谚语告诉我们:前辈人艰苦创业是为了后代人生活幸福。后代人不可忘记前辈人的功劳。

This proverb tells us that we should never forget that the benefits we enjoy are the result of previous generation's hard work.

乘凉:热天在凉快的地方休息。
         To rest in a cool place on a hot day.

造句 ( example )
正所谓“前人栽树,后人乘凉。”我们所做的一切都是造福子孙万代的事业。
