Those who, so far as possible, engage in the work of doing good to others by giving practical demonstration of their interest in them, are not only relieving the ills of human life in helping them bear their burdens, but are at the same time contributing largely to their own health of soul and body.

The pleasure of doing good animates the mind and vibrates through the whole body.—Testimonies for the Church 2:534.
