Good Deeds?

“No good deed goes unpunished.” I think this statement is true. I think that this means that no matter how good of a deed you do, you will always be punished in some way. For example, if you give food or money to a homeless person, you will have that much less money or food for your family. But, I’m not saying you shouldn’t do good deeds, I’m just saying that there are consequences for all actions. Another example, more extreme, is when Hans Hubermann in The Book Thief gives bread to a Jew as they are being paraded through Molching. He is immediately pushed to the ground and whipped by a Nazi soldier.
