my math teacher:
*pulls out dollar bill* how much is this worth?
Students:
$1
teacher:
*folds bill in half* how much is this worth now?
students:
$1
teacher:
*folds bill in half again* how much is it worth now?
students:
$1
teacher:
what about if I crumple it up and throw it on the ground? Will someone pass by it and say, "Ooh, a dollar, but I won't pick it up because it's all crumpled and dirty"?
students:
No, because it's still worth a dollar.
teacher:
Exactly. No matter how much a human goes through or how much they do, they're still worth the life of a human.

Pride? What pride?

"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonimously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

(“Pride and prejudice”, Chapter 5)
