The quote " Sometimes, she said, they threaten you with something - something you can't stand up to, can't even think about, And then you say, 'Don't do it to me , do it to somebody else, do it to so-and-so....You think there's no other way of saving yourself, and you're quite ready to save yourself that way. You want it to happen to other person.... All you care about is yourself" is a true feeling of human emotion when a human feels hopeless and wants to get out of a situation knowing they can put the blame on someone else so they can get out of the predicament that they are in. For example, You hit your younger sibling because they hit you first and you know your mom already told you - you can't hit them. You try to bribe your little brother because you know your consequence will be bad or you'll try to blame it on your other sibling. When it comes down to you knowing you are trapped you will do anything and everything to get out of it even if it is risking someone else's life.
