No doubt there have been countless books and lectures on the importance of helping others. In fact, if you knew that you helped just one person in your life, you could be at peace knowing your life had purpose. Seems attainable enough, right?
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
– Emily Dickinson
