Hello,

Please help me to deal with a sincere query about "by / with her peresence".

Please tell me whethere the "by / with" used to show through the use or means of / depending on / being based on.

If that is not so, how about "with respect to" / "connected with"?

Thank you for your help.

Today the Queen honored us by / with her presence.

The Queen has a very busy schedule. She receives many invitations.
When she accepts an invitation, and comes to visit you, it is a great honor.
Her presence honors you.

Recently the Queen came to the wedding of two ordinary people. They had sent her an invitation, but never imagined that she would come. She did. The Queen honored them by being there (by / with her presence).

Hi,

Humanbeing exist between heaven and earth.

So the way for / of doing something has two ways:

1.In the model of ” to the will of God“ , it is to day"to vary according to what / to be directed by what"
The idiom "That all depends" means that that are all waiting for and directed by what.
At the time, someone or something is under a direction of what.
So, it is the lower position of logic below what.

2. In the model of "on the earth", it is to say "to be supported by what / to need for one's support"
----We exist in a necessity for one's support.
At the time, someone or something is in a direction of what.
So, it is the upper position of logic and is the top of what.

e.g.

1. Why not make it for yourself instead of buying it?
(the way of making it is to be directed by you, making it is lower position of logic below you / you are the upper position of logic )

2. Why don't you ask him yourself?
(the way of asking him is to be supported by yourself, asking him is the upper position of logic, and "you" is the lower position of logic )

Come back unto the original post : Today the Queen honored us by / with her presence.

(the way of her honoring us is to be supported by / need for her presence, so her honoring us is the opper position of logic and is the top of "her presence" .)
