This was a merchant who sold pills that had been invented to quench thirst. You need only swallow one pill a week, and you would feel no need of anything to drink.
“Why are you selling those?” asked the little prince.
“Because they save a tremendous amount of time,” said the merchant. “Computations have been made by experts. With these pills, you save fifty-three minutes in every week.”
“And what do I do with those fifty-three minutes?”
“Anything you like…”
“As for me,” said the little prince to himself, "if I had fifty-three minutes to spend as I liked, I should walk at my leisure toward a spring of fresh water." (The Little Prince)

[Era un mercante di pillole perfezionate che calmavano la sete. Se ne inghiottiva una alla settimana e non si sentiva più il bisogno di bere.
“Perché vendi questa roba?” disse il piccolo principe.
“È una grossa economia di tempo”, disse il mercante, “Gli esperti hanno fatto dei calcoli. Si risparmiano 53 minuti a settimana”.
“E cosa se ne fa di questi 53 minuti?”
“Se ne fa quel che si vuole…”
“Io”, disse il piccolo principe, “se avessi 53 minuti da spendere, camminerei adagio adagio verso una fontana…”] (Il Piccolo Principe)
