Leadership/Tikkun Olam

If a person resides in town for thirty days, that person is responsible for continuing the soup kitchen; After three months, the charity box; After six months, to the clothing fund; After nine months, to the burial fund; And after 12 months, that person is responsible to the repair of the town walls.

~ Jewish Proverb/Quote

I believe this is from the Talmud, but I am not sure.  If more people had this mindset, the world would surely be a better place.
