KRITIK
Karya: Kahlil Gibran

Suatu ketika menjelang malam seorang pria yang berkelana di atas punggung kuda menuju laut mencapai sebuah penginapan. Ia turun, dan seperti semua penunggang kuda yang menuju laut, ia mengikatkan kudanya ke sebatang pohon di dekat pintu dan memasuki penginapan.

Tengah malam, ketika semuanya tengah lelap, seorang pencuri datang dan mengambil kuda pengelana itu.

Keesokan harinya pengembara terbangun dan menemukan kudanya telah dicuri. Dan ia meratapi kudanya.

Lalu teman-teman menginapnya datang dan berdiri di sekelilingnya, dan mulai berkata-kata.

Dan pria pertama berkata, “Betapa bodohnya kau mengikat kudamu di luar kandang.”

Dan yang kedua berkata, “Lebih bodoh lagi, tanpa mengikat kaki kuda!”

Dan pria ketiga berkata, “Yang paling bodoh adalah pergi ke laut dengan menunggang kuda!”

Dan yang keempat berkata, “Hanya yang lamban dan malas yang memiliki kuda.”

Si pengelana tercengang. Dan akhirnya ia berteriak, “Kawan-kawan, lantaran kudaku telah dicuri, kalian berebut memberitahu kesalahan dan cacatku. Tetapi anehnya, tidak satu kata pun kalian ucapkan tentang orang yang mencuri kudaku.”

CRITICS
By: Kahlil Gibran

One nightfall a man travelling on horseback towards the sea reached an inn by the roadside. He dismounted, and confident in man and night like all riders towards the sea, he tied his horse to a tree beside the door and entered into the inn.

At midnight, when all were asleep, a thief came and stole the traveller’s horse.

In the morning the man awoke, and discovered that his horse was stolen. And he grieved for his horse, and that a man had found it in his heart to steal.

Then his fellow-lodgers came and stood around him and began to talk.

And the first man said, “How foolish of you to tie your horse outside the stable.”

And the second said, “Still more foolish, without even hobbling the horse!”

And the third man said, “It is stupid at best to travel to the sea on horseback.”

And the fourth said, “Only the indolent and the slow of foot own horses.”

Then the traveller was much astonished. At last he cried, “My friends, because my horse was stolen, you have hastened one and all to tell me my faults and my shortcomings. But strange, not one word of reproach have you uttered about the man who stole my horse.”
