When one gives one's kindness for the sake of getting something back in return, for the sake of getting a good name, for the sake of causing other people to like oneself, if the motivation is for the self, then this would not really be a bodhisattva deed. Therefore, one pointedness points to the giving only for the sake of helping others. - Dalai Lama 14th
