yay! grin

a shot by me, kinda like it:
There are four brothers in this world that were all born together. The first runs and never wearies. The second eats and is never full. The third drinks and is always thirsty. The fourth sings a song that is never good.

Hmm...

Is the first brother Time?  Maybe the second Famine?  I'm not too sure about the third, but perhaps the fourth is Death?

Sounds a bit like the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse  (yes,  I KNOW Time isn't one)

Am I on the right track here, or totally off base, Rakshiri?

Your thought goes into the right direction but it has nothing to do with Christian concepts.

This seems to remind me of a book I read as a child. Would they happen to be chinese brothers, Yin and Yang paired with Time and Famine. Oh well, thats my guess.

It's definitely time related then I'd say... And the verbs are probably more metaphorical than literal.

The first might be the Present, the second might be the Past? The third the Future? And then we have a singer as well that is no good... lol

Water alwasy runs, yet never wearies.. Fire always eats but is never full.

then Earth could drink, and Wind could sing.. but that doesn't make much sense..

Actually I think that does make a lot of sense earth, wind, fire and water, they are the elements, not as in periodic table elements obviously, but you know the elements of the world.

Thats why i tried to fit them in.. we need a set of four concepts that express the properties of the brothers..

The four elements is the right answer.

I find it a rather nice description of the four elements.

Well, and it does make some sense that Earth drinks and is always thirsty. That the wind sings is definitely very true - it just doesn't sing a song we are used to, Mira :)

It says that the song isn't good. ;)
