Proverb Analysis

Uploaded by MafiaBoy85 on Mar 15, 2002

Have you ever helped a friend or family member in need? Or even a stranger? You probably did this out of good intent and wanted to be a good Samaritan. Well I applaud you! Well done! However, have you ever thought about what would happen if that person was in trouble again? I answered this question by writing my own proverb, “Help a person in need, and he will think of you again when he is in trouble.” It is pretty self explanatory.

A while later, they return asking for more help but this time in a bit more urgent and less appreciative manner. You still help them. This continues on until they do it so much it gets on your nerves and no matter what you say, they still keep asking for help. They might tell friends and they’ll ask you for answers as well as him, or he might never stop. This may be resolved but you have learned a lesson. Some people cannot be trusted. That is what I believe! However I believe that you shouldn’t trust anyone just to be safe. Now this has happened to a friend of mine exactly how I described in the example. What convinced me to believe in...
