Serious Thoughts 3/5/11

I found this in one of my favorite books ever, Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, and I thought I would share it with you all.
The Golden Rule
"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them,for this is the law of the prophets." 
-Matthew 7:12

"What is harmful to you, do not to your fellow men. That is the Law; all the rest commentary."
Shabbat, 312

"This is the turn of duty; do naught unto others which could cause you pain if done to you."
-Mahabharata, 5, 1517

"Surely it is the maxim of loving: Do not unto other that you would have them do unto you."
-Analects, 15, 23

"Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain and your neighbor's loss as your own loss."
-T'ai Shang Kan Ying P'ien

"Hurt not others in ways you yourself would find hurtful."
-Udana-Varga 5, 18

"That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not food for itself."
-Dadistan-i-dinik, 94, 5

"No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself."

Secular View
"Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same."
-George Bernard Shaw

This was posted just so I could say. In case those pictures of Jesus I posted are insulting, I believe that if I can  make fun of myself, and I can accept people making fun of me, then I think it's all right if I can make fun of something as long as they can take it.

"Do unto others as you and others do unto yourself"
