Why Do Social Work?

On Jan 22, 2012 David Doane wrote:

As I read the piece, I thought of the statement by Rabindranath Tagoare that "I slept and dreamed that life is joy; I awoke and saw that life is service; I took action and saw that service is joy."  I also thought of Alan Watt's statement that virtue is its own reward.  I believe it is important in social work and otherwise to be aware of my motives, be careful about ulterior motives or hidden agendas, and be sure that my action is with compassion and for my growth and that of the other person.
