Since man is a valuing being and since choices
of value always presuppose some center of value, in a general
sense human life is always lived toward some god or hierarchy
of value. Both the just and unjust live by faith that something
makes life worth living. Even suicide, a negation of all value,
pursues certain values, such as the elimination of guilt, or the
attempt to strike back at a cruel world; and therefore it assumes
some specific orientation toward some center of value.
