Quote by Newton Gatambia
We are not good because of the good we do but we are good and so we do good.
This quote suggests that our innate goodness is what drives us to perform good deeds, rather than the other way around. It implies that being good is a characteristic of our nature and is not solely dependent on our actions. Essentially, it implies that the essence of being good is rooted within us, and as a result, we naturally tend to engage in acts of kindness and benevolence.
The sciences do not try to explain, they hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work.
