"Iba y venía, delicado y fatal, cargado de infinita energía, del otro lado de los firmes barrotes y todos lo mirábamos.
Era el tigre de esa mañana, en Palermo, y el tigre del Oriente y el tigre de Blake y de Hugo y Shere Khan, y los tigres que fueron y que serán y asimismo el tigre arquetipo, ya que el individuo, en su caso, es toda la especie.
Pensamos que era sanguinario y hermoso. Norah, una niña, dijo: 'Está hecho para el amor'"

J. L. Borges, "El Tigre"

"He came and went, delicate and deadly, full of endless energy, at the other side of the strong bars and everyone watched.
It was the tiger of that morning in Palermo, and the tiger from the East and the tiger of Blake and Hugo and Shere Khan, and tigers that were and will be and also the archetypical tiger, as the individual, if any, is all his kind.
We thought it was bloody and beautiful. Norah, a girl, said: 'It is made ​​for love' "

J. L. Borges, "The Tiger"
