それからはべつだんの会話かいわなかった。またなが会話ができかねるほど、ひとがぞろぞろあるところ大観音おおがんのんまえ乞食こじきがいる。ひたいにすりつけて、おおきなこえのべつにして哀願あいがんたくましゅうしている。時々ときどきかおげると、額のところだけがすなしろなっている。だれもかえりみるものがない。五人ごにん平気へいきぎた六間ろっけんも来たときに、広田ひろた先生せんせいきゅういて三四郎さんしろういた

きみあの乞食にぜにをやりましたか」

「いいえ」と三四郎があとをと、れい乞食は、白い額のした両手りょうてわせて相変あいかわらず大きな声を出している。

「やるにならないわね」とよしがすぐにった

「なぜ」とよし子のあにいもうとを見た。たしなめるほどにつよ言葉ことばでもなかった。野々宮ののみやかおつきはむしろ冷静れいせいである。

「ああしじゅうせっついていちゃ、せっつきばえがしないからだめですよ」と美禰子みねこひょうした

「いえ場所ばしょわるからだ」と今度こんどは広田先生が言った。「あまり人通ひとどおおおすぎるからいけない。やまうえさびしい所で、ああいうおとこったら、だれでもやる気になるんだよ」

そのかわ一日いちにちっていても、だれもとおらないかもしれない」と野々宮はくすくすわらした

三四郎は四人よにんの乞食たいする批評ひひょうを聞いて、自分じぶん今日こんにちまで養成いくせいした徳義上とくぎじょう観念かんねん幾分いくぶんきずつけられるような気がした。けれども自分が乞食の前を通る時、一銭いっせんげてやる了見りょうけんこらなかったのみならず、じつをいえば、むしろ不愉快ふゆかいかんつのった事実じじつ反省はんせいしてみると、自分よりもこれら四人のほうがかえっておのれまことであるとおもいついた。またかれは己に誠でありうるほどなひろ天地てんちの下に呼吸こきゅうする都会人種しゃかいじんしゅであるということをさとった

Rough translation

There was little in the way of further conversation. And they were too far into the thick of the crowd to converse at length. In front of the Ōgannon Temple they saw a beggar. He was prostrating himself to the ground and crying out incessantly, striving his utmost to garner sympathy. He occasionally lifted his gaze, showing a forehead powdered in dirt. No one gave him a second thought. The five of them passed by unconcerned. About ten meters further on, Professor Hirota suddenly turned and asked Sanshirō, "Did you give that beggar a coin?"

"I didn't." Sanshirō looked back and saw the beggar, now with his hands clasped beneath his dusty forehead, still crying in a loud voice.

"He doesn't inspire pity," Yoshiko added immediately.

"Why?" Nonomiya questioned his younger sister. His question carried no hint of reproach, only a sense of detached curiosity.

"It's his non-stop begging. It's ineffective if it's overdone." Mineko offered her opinion.

"Actually, he's chosen the wrong place." This time Professor Hirota weighed in himself. "There are too many people here. If you met that man on a lonely mountain, you'd be moved immediately to help him."

"On the other hand, he could wait there all day and not meet a soul," Nonomiya chuckled.

Sanshirō felt that their attitudes toward this beggar were somehow an affront to his long-nurtured notion of morality. He himself, however, had not been inclined to throw the beggar even a single sen as they'd passed. If the truth be told, he'd instead felt a growing sense of unease. Reflecting on this truth, it occurred to him that it was the other four who were sincere to their own feelings. They were people who had lived and breathed the air of this vast city, where sincerity to oneself was standard fare.
