THE PARASITE PARASITIC AN ART

TYCHIADES

Why in the world is it, Simon, that while other men, both slave and free, each know some art by which they are of use to themselves and to someone else, you apparently have no work which would enable you to make any profit yourself or give away anything to anybody else ?

simon

What do you mean by that question, Tych fades ? I do not understand. Try to put it more clearly.

TYCHIADES

Is there any art that you happen to know ? Music, for instance ?

simon No, indeed.

TYCHIADES

Well, medicine?

SIMON

Not that, either.

TYCHIADES

Geometry, then ?

simon Not by any means.
