On the parable of the Good Samaritan:
“I image the first question which the priest and the Levite asked was:
If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?
But by the very nature of his concern the good Samaritan reversed the question:
If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?“
– Martin Luther King Jr.
