Rasselas reflects on the difference between a beast and man. “’I am hungry and thirsty like him, but when thirst and hunger cease I am not at rest; I am, like him, pained with want, but am not, like him, satisfied with fulness. The intermediate hours are long and gloomy; I long again to be hungry that I may again quicken my attention.’”

Samuel Johnson The History of Rasselas
