Can anyone confirm the two assertions made in the following quotation (from
_The New Pioneers_ by Tom Petzinger, Jr.):

In many ancient languages the word equivalent of "business" shares the same
roots as "life"; in old Sanskrit, "man" was derived from a word meaning to
weigh, value, count out, or share.

Thank you.
