Social Morality


To love our neighbor as ourselves
is such a truth for regulating human society,
that by that alone one might determine all the cases in social morality.
- John Locke

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

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)

Be kind whenever possible; and it is always possible.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Religion is no more the parent of morality
than an incubator is the mother of a chicken.
- Lemuel K. Washburn

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.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
