Long before I ever came across this important quote below, I always thought from very young age that helping and reaching out to others has great value, and it is a virtue we should all embrace because of pleasurable feeling it engenders. 

“It is of course required of a [Human] that [s/he] should benefit his/ [her] fellow [Human] — many if [s/he] can; if not, a few; if not a few, those who are nearest; if not these, himself/ [herself]. For when [s/he] renders himself/ [herself] useful to others, he/ [she] engages in public affairs.” — Seneca.
