It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely* try to help another without helping himself. – Emerson
Everything is sticky, whether you’re generous or stingy, helpful and conniving, thoughtful or selfish, . . . everything rubs off on you.
Be very careful what you rub up against – whether it’s your thoughts, beliefs or actions.
It all matters.

* Remember it requires sincerely trying to help.
