“One goes to the market to participate in the world. As with all things that concern
the world, being in the market requires caution. The market – the essence of the
city – is always alive with possibility and danger. Strangers encounter each other
in the world’s infinite variety; vigilance is needed. Everyone is there not only to
buy and sell, but because it is a duty. If you sit in your house, if you refuse to go to
market, how would you know of the existence of others? How would you know of
your own existence?”
