The Golden Rule

From African Rhapsody by X-ray-Robinson (author's profile)


The Golden Rule

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

We have committed the Golden Rule to memory. Now let us commit it to life.
-Edwin Markham

Therefore, whatever you want men to do you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
-Matthew 7:12

And just as you want men to do you, you also do to them likewise.
-Luke 6:31

One should seek for others the happiness one desires for one's self.

What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.

Let none of you treat his brother in a way he himself would not like to be treated.

We should behave to our friends as we would wish our friends to behave to us.

The law imprinted on the hearts of all men is to love the members of society as themselves.

What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the whole Torah.
-Rabbi Hillel

Do as you would be done by.

Deal with others as thou wouldst thyself be dealt by.
-The Hindu Mahabharata

Do to others as I would they should do to me.

One should not behave towards others in a way which is disagreeable to oneself. This is the essence of duty (dharma). All else results from selfish desire.
