8.饕餮                                     

 

  我在漫游四方时,曾于一座岛上见过一个人头铁足的怪物,在一刻不停地吃着泥土,饮着海水。我在旁边观察良久,然后走近问道:"你从不感到满足吗?你的饥渴永不会消解吗?"

  怪物回答:"不,我已经满足了,我甚至已倦于吃喝;但我担心明天没有泥土可食,没有海水可饮。"

The Plutocrat

In my wanderings I once saw upon an island a man-headed, iron-hoofed monster who ate of the earth and drank of the sea incessantly. And for a long while I watched him. Then I approached him and said, "Have you never enough; is your hunger never satisfied and your thirst never quenched?"

And he answered saying, "Yes, I am satisfied, nay, I am weary of eating and drinking; but I am afraid that tomorrow there will be no more earth to eat and no more sea to drink."
