Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself

It was said that a monk who made baskets was putting handles on them, when he heard another monk saying nearby, "What shall I do? The trader is coming soon and I haven't got any handles to put on my baskets."

So he took off the handles he had put on his own baskets, and took them to the nearby monk, and said, "I don't need these; take them and put them on your baskets." He helped the brother to finish his baskets, but left his own unfinished.
