Safran (1982), the author of this article, describes one of the most significant moments of the rescue: "They aimed one line at the balding man. Once more, he caught it. Did he think then, even briefly, of his own chances for survival". Different people would probably have t...

    907 words
    Goethe's statement, "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help then to become what they are capable of being" is commonly used in both a positive and negative form in today's society.

  • Need Of Help
    777 words
    "It takes a village to raise a child", a famous quote with much more truth in it than may be realized.

  • Good And Simple People
    708 words
    After reading The Courage To Care I believe that Odette Meyers quote "I do think that good people, simple people are much more complicated than evil people, which is one reason perhaps why we do not bother with them so much". is true for just about all of the rescuers. If these people were evil, they would have never found the courage to help out so many people. In my opinion, evil people are cowards acting out for attention.
