He saw the traveller bleeding in the road, and he stopped to aid him without thinking of the circumstance or the difficulty it might bring him. The Samaritan tended to the traveller's wounds, applying oil and wine, and he carried him to an inn, gave him all the money he had, for the owner to take care of the traveller, as the Samaritan, he... continued on his journey. He did this simply because the traveller was his neighbour. He loved his city, and all the people in it. ''[sighs]'' I always thought that ''I'' was the Samaritan in that story. It's funny, isn't it?
