1: Why is it important to have a good relationship with one’s neighbors?

One: “A bad neighbor is a misfortune, as much as a good one is a great blessing”
Hesiod quotes (Greek poets, “the father of Greek didactic poetry”, 700bc)

Two: “I have also learned why people work so hard to succeed: It is because they envy the things their neighbors have. But it is useless. It is like chasing the wind…It is better to have only a little, with peace of mind, than be busy all the time with both hands, trying to catch the wind.”
( Ecclesiastes quotes from

Three: “Sometimes a neighbor whom we have disliked a lifetime for his arrogance and conceit lets fall a single commonplace remark that shows us another side, another man really; a man uncertain, puzzled and in the dark like ourselves”
(Willa Sibert Cather quotes from

3: What would you cite to prove that “The Good Samaritan” is a good title for the story?
