What was the self-sacrifice?"
I jettisoned half of a much-loved and I think irreplaceable pair of shoes."
Why was that self-sacrifice?"
Because they were mine!" said Ford, crossly.
I think we have different value systems."

It can be very dangerous to see things from somebody else's point of view without the proper training.

Anything that happens, happens.
