An argument for community?

The quote for the day on the calendar that sits on my office desk:

"Learn to let others do their share of the work. Things may be done less well, but you will have more peace of soul and health of body. And what temporal interest should we not sacrifice in order to gain these blessings?" (Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne)

More peace of soul and health of body, huh? Sounds like a good argument for a life lived in community, relying and depending on others, and not just oneself...
