The humming person is Charvak and the curious one is Epicurus)   Epicurus: hey, sir, what are you humming so sweetly, what is its meaning?   Charvak: It is my couplet in Sanskrit. Its meaning is ‘live happily till there is life. For no one is outside the gaze of the Death.   Epicurus: by god, this is what I also say. That one should not fear death and that from every other thing there may be some security, but as far as death is concerned we live in city without walls.   Charvak: So nice.

He is such a nice man.   Euthyphro: Oh, he did not do it knowingly. But a murder is a murder. And it is in the interest of Piety or justice that he be punished.   Socrates: But, I think puniing one’s own father is not right, nor it is pious.   Euthyphro: No, I think, rules of  piety and righteousness are same for one and all.
