真正的藝術家/A True Artist

這是我在烏克蘭流浪時聽來的故事:

說故事的那個人上了一輛公共汽車,看到有位年輕人,一身黑衣,全身上下充滿藝術氣息;帶著個皮箱,一看就知道裡頭裝的是薩克斯風。

那個年輕人身旁那個人跟他說:"你一看就知道是個藝術家。為我們演奏一曲如何?"

年輕人答道:"我是個成名的藝術家。我的表演費很高的!"

那人說:"你說得一點都不錯,真正的藝術家的演出費的確很高;"

他繼續說:"或者,一介不取!"

那年輕人聽了以後,愣了一下,若有所感。

然後,他以閃電般的速度,掏出他的樂器,開始演奏!手段果然不低!

全車的人聽得如癡如醉,不曉得有多少人坐過了站,包括告訴我這個故事的人在內。



This is a story I heard while back packing in Ukraine:

The gentleman told me the story got on a bus on day. He saw a young man in black looking quite artistic. His case appear to be containing a saxophone.

The gentleman standing next to the young man told him "You look like an artist. Would you play something for us?"

"I am a famous artist. The price tag for my performance is very high." The young man replied.

The gentleman agreed "You are right. A true artist either charges a lot..."

He continued "... or nothing at all!"

The young man became quite for a moment.

After a moment, he pulled out his weapon in a lightning speed, and began playing! He was indeed very good!

All the passengers enjoyed his music. Many people missed their stops, including the gentleman told me this story.
