The story of a Man

Alone was a man sat in a forest. Drown in sadness. Animals came to him and said, "We do not want to see you sad. Ask us for whatever you wish and you shall have it". The man said, "I want to have a good sight". Eagle replied, "You shall have mine". The man said, "I want to be strong". Elephant said, "You shall be strong like mine". Then the man said, "I have long to know the secrets of the earth". The serpent replied, "I will show them to you". It went to all the other animals. When the man had all the gifts that they(the animals) could give, he left. Then the owl said to the other animals. Now the man knows much and able to do so many things. The deer said, "The man has all that he needs, now his sadness will stop". The owl said, "No.... I saw a hole in man, deep like a hunger he will never fill, it is what make him sad and what makes him want. He will go on taking and taking until the day the world say: I am no more and I have nothing left to give you".

Power, fame, money, technologies, stature...
