Lachs argues that we should love life as long as there is something worth loving. There is plenty that is worth loving, from the joys of childhood to the pleasures of the body (the organ of our activities) and the comforts afforded by technology. That we love rather than merely like life is evident by the delight we take in its activities; we throw ourselves into life with boundless enthusiasm, never getting enough of it. Lachs nevertheless cautions against wanting life at any price, for the price is sometimes simply too high.
