Immanuel Kant famously states that the only thing good without qualification is a good will. Do you agree with Kant? Provide an example of someone doing a good thing but out of a motive other than that of good will.

Kant's view is in agreement with religious and commonsense views. A person tries to save a child from an accident but only makes matters worse. Yet we do not blame him because his intention was good. Conversely a person (who is usually very miserly) gives generously to a beggar  in order to impress his girlfriend does not get credit for his good deed.
