    Looking for Quote

    I was reading a thread and it reminded me of a quote I read one time; however, I cannont remember where from, so I was unable to reference it. Let me preface that I may have read this in a book, webpage, or on this forum; I just don't remember where or the quote word for word.

    The author was making the point that those who do not defend themselves and rely on others/police, place a higher value on their own life, than the others by waiting for someone else to show up and protect them. Went something like this: "Why is your life so valuable that another should risk their life to protect yours".

    Of course that is paraphrased, but hopefully makes the point. Thanks for any help. bm

    Buddy I checked all over and couldn't find it. Hopefully someone else will have better luck. :(

    I've read it too, which makes it even more irritating. :)
