Strive to help others

Aristotle said:

“The ideal person is he who takes pleasure in serving others, and who is ashamed when others do things for him, since showing compassion is a sign of superiority, while receiving it is a sign of failure.”

More concise and to the point is the following hadith:

“The Upper Hand is better than the Lower Hand.”

The upper hand refers to the giving hand, and the lower one refers to the receiving hand.
