It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can
sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I just remembered a quote by Shunryu Suzuki:
“Even though you do not realize the oneness [...] with everything, when you give something you feel good, because at that time you feel at one with what you are giving. This is why it feels better to give than to take.”
