Crew and passengers alike were terrified as the ship tossed helplessly in the turbulent waters. No  one commanded, none of the crew cooperated. Only the Anabaptist endeavored to help, but a  frightened sailor struck him a hard blow, and from the force of it the sailor himself fell overboard.  Caught on a masthead, he seemed to be lost. The good Anabaptist rescued him and lost his own life  in the action. Candide wanted to sacrifice himself when he saw his benefactor die, but Pangloss  convinced him that a wise Providence had arranged all this so that the Anabaptist would not survive.  For the doctor, all things continued to be for the best. And at that moment the ship split open.  Everyone perished except Candide, Pangloss, and the heartless sailor who had been saved by the  Anabaptist. The first two reached shore on a plank.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
