“Disaster doesn't sort us out by preferences; it drags us into emergencies that require we act, and act altruistically, bravely, and with initiative in order to survive or save the aid and pleasure are linked, that the ties that bind are grounds for celebration as well as obligation.” 
― Rebecca Solnit, A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster
