Quote by William Shakespeare
You take my life when you do take the means whereby I live.
This quote, spoken by William Shakespeare's character Portia in the play "The Merchant of Venice," expresses the profound connection between one's livelihood and their existence. Portia argues that depriving someone of their means of survival is equivalent to taking away their life itself. It highlights the importance of having the resources necessary for a decent life, highlighting the inseparable link between material well-being and human existence. Portia's words serve as a reminder of the fundamental need for sustenance and how deeply intertwined it is with our very being.
September 11 I will never forget feeling scared and vulnerable I will never forget feeling the deep sad loss of so many lives I will never forget the smell of the smoke that reached across the water and delivered a deep feeling of doom into my gut I will never forget feeling the boosted sense of unity and pride I will never forget seeing the courageous actions of so many men and women I will never forget seeing people of all backgrounds working together in community I will never forget seeing what hate can destroy I will never forget seeing what love can heal
But in the end, science does not provide the answers most of us require. Its story of our origins and of our end is, to say the least, unsatisfactory. To the question, How did it all begin?, science answers, Probably by an accident. To the question, How will it all end?, science answers, Probably by an accident. And to many people, the accidental life is not worth living. Moreover, the science-god has no answer to the question, Why are we here? and, to the question, What moral instructions do you give us?, the science-god maintains silence.
