Luc ten Klooster
All came from the dust and all return to the dust. We are all equal, we are all born in the same way and dying is for all of us a heart that stops beating. As Shylock tells us in Shakespeares “Merchant of Venice”: “I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is?”
Shylocks statement is not only valid for Jews and Christians, it is valid for all people on earth.
