Even if he hanged himself…

A monk went to ask a abbot:

There are two monks. One of them stay in his cell in silence, fasting six days a week and he toils away. The other one is nursing a sick person. Which one of them pleases God more?

That one who is fasting six days a week, even if he hanged himself of his nostrils, would never be able to reach the virtue of the brother who is nursing the sick man.
