Robert A. Heinlein
“Our behavior is different. How often have you seen a headline like this?--TWO DIE ATTEMPTING RESCUE OF DROWNING CHILD. If a man gets lost in the mountains, hundreds will search and often two or three searchers are killed. But the next time somebody gets lost just as many volunteers turn out.

Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers

“Anxiously you ask, 'Is there a way to safety? Can someone guide me? Is there an escape from threatened destruction?' The answer is a resounding yes! I counsel you: Look to the lighthouse of the Lord. There is no fog so dense, no night so dark, no gale so strong, no mariner so lost but what its beacon light can rescue. It beckons through the storms of life. It calls, 'This way to safety; this way to home.”

Raymond Chandler
“The main hallway of the Sternwood place was two stories high. Over the entrance doors, which would have let in a troop of Indian elephants, there was a broad stained-glass panel showing a knight in dark armor rescuing a lady who was tied to a tree and didn’t have any clothes on but some very long and convenient hair. The knight had pushed the vizor of his helmet back to be sociable, and he was fiddling with the knots on the ropes that tied the lady to the tree and not getting anywhere. I stood there and thought that if I lived in the house, I would sooner or later have to climb up there and help him. He didn’t seem to be really trying.”
Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep

He isn't waiting to punish you and he doesn't give you blessings just to strip them away.”
Sylvain Reynard, Gabriel's Redemption

Her thoughts of God had a homeliness that at times seemed shocking, in spite of their power, which could rescue her from terror or evil with an ease that astonished her.”
Elizabeth Goudge, The Scent of Water

Charles Martin
“You rescued me when I thought nobody would. When I thought I wasn't worth the effort. You gave me everything and asked for nothing.'
She pressed her face to mine.

She shook her head.
'But if you give you to me, then'-
she placed her palm flat across my chest
-'come heavy”
Charles Martin, Thunder and Rain

Roberto Bolaño
“And finally the two of them plunged into the dark sea, a sea like a pack of wolves, and they dove around the boat trying to find young Reiter's body, with no success, until they had to come up for air, and before they dove again, they asked the men on the boat whether the brat had surfaced. And then, under the weight of the negative response, they disappeared once more among the dark waves like forest beasts and one of the men who hadn't been in before joined them, and it was he who some fifteen feet down spotted the body of young Reiter floating like uprooted seaweed, upward, a brilliant white in the underwater space, and it was he who grabbed the body under the arms and brought him up, and also he who made the young Reiter vomit all the water he had swallowed.”
Roberto Bolaño, 2666

Donna Goddard
“Walk a bit further.
There is a different land not far away.
The people in it have the magic to break the icy fingers of the great death.
I heard that you don’t even have to pay.
However, you have to find their door.
It is only found by those who pay the other price.”
Donna Goddard, Love's Longing

“Working at the animal shelter has afforded me two observations: a dog without a master has no religion; and there’s no sin more punishable in this world than failure to find love.”
J. A. Robitaille, A Dog's Religion

Joel A. Robitaille
“Sometimes someone receives help who doesn’t want it. Sometimes that someone falls under the Mental Health Act. Sometimes that someone is a child. And sometimes that someone is a dog. What do you do? Look the other way? Pretend it doesn’t matter? There’s a drive deep inside of me to help dogs. It’s not a choice. It’s a function of being me.”
J. A. Robitaille, A Dog's Religion
