The Golden Rule


Do to others as you would have them do to you.
- Luke 6:31 (the "Golden Rule")

Do not do to others what would anger you
if done to you by others.
- Isocrates (Ancient Greek)

Never impose on others what
you would not choose for yourself.
- Confucius (Ancient Chinese)

That which is hateful to you,
do not do to your fellow.
That is the whole Torah;
the rest is the explanation.
- Talmud (Jewish Wisdom)

Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.
- Arthur Schopenhauer

Know that the true essence of the Golden Rule
is always being compassionate, kind,
generous, and being in service to others.
Compelling others to behave as you wish
them to behave in the name of the
Golden Rule is a corruption of a sacred principle.
Compassion is the universal standard for moral living.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
