Quote by Mario Batali
Are we Darwinists - where we live and let live? Or are we nurturing as a society? There has to be a standard of living that we decide to support.
This quote raises the question of whether we should adopt a Darwinist approach, allowing individuals to pursue their own self-interest and survival without interference, or whether we should prioritize nurturing as a society. It suggests that we need to establish a standard of living that we collectively agree to uphold and support. Essentially, it prompts a reflection on the balance between individualism and societal well-being, questioning the level of care and support we owe to one another as members of a community.
My dad and mom divorced when I was around ten, and I didn't live with him after that, though he was close by and we saw each other weekly. I wasn't really aware that he was a writer I didn't start reading his writing until I was about fifteen. It occurred to me then that my dad was kind of special he's still one of my favorite writers.
