Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Buddhism - "A state which is not pleasant or enjoyable for me will also not be so for others, and how can I impose on another a state which is not pleasant or enjoyable for me?" (Samyutta Nika V, 353.35 - 342.2)
Baha’i - “If thou lookest for justice, choose thou for others what thou choosest for thyself.”

Christianity - "In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.” (Matt. 7:12)

Confucius - "What you yourself do not want do not do to another person." (Sayings 15.23)

Jainism - “Human beings should be indifferent to worldly things and treat all creatures in the world as they would want to be treated themselves.” (Sutrakritanga 1, 11, 33)

Judaism - “What is hateful to you, do not to others. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.” (Talmud, Shabbat, 31a)

Taoism - "So look at someone else as you would yourself and treat others families as you would your own; See your community in other communities, think of all countries as part of your being and treasure the world as the round center of everything." (Tao te Ching: 54)

Wicca - “Do as ye will, but do no harm, for what you send returns three times over.” (Saying)
