A bargain defined
- Apparently the Mulla only considered the following to be a true bargain:
Take one with the full-moon face and the pearly hue, who was pinched and stretched, imprisoned and released, made to drink and weaned, and pushed into the fire after he had been slapped.
And trade this for:
The pregnant that impregnates, the spoiler who enriches, the saddener who gladdens, the possessor of a puff that sets on fire, and of a germ that breaks forth in light, of an utterance that satisfies, and of a gift that profits, who, when he is struck thunders and lightens, and reveals himself in flames, and who sputters on tinder rags.
