Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty,
“Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Socrates
“Do not do to others what angers you if done to you by others.”
Socrates

Mark Twain
“Do something everyday that you don't want to do; this is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.”
Mark Twain

Ana Monnar
“Treat other people's home as you want them to respect yours because what goes around comes around.”
Ana Monnar

Charles Dickens
“Remember!--It is Christianity to do good always--even to those who do evil to us. It is Christianity to love our neighbours as ourself, and to do to all men as we would have them do to us. It is Christianity to be gentle, merciful and forgiving, and to keep those qualities quiet in our own hearts, and never make a boast of them or of our prayers or of our love of God, but always to show that we love Him by humbly trying to do right in everything. If we do this, and remember the life and lessons of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and try to act up to them, we may confidently hope that God will forgive us our sins and mistakes, and enable us to live and die in peace.”
Charles Dickens

“I have something that I call my Golden Rule. It goes something like this: 'Do unto others twenty-five percent better than you expect them to do unto you.' … The twenty-five percent is for error.”
Linus Pauling

John Adams
“...The Presidential election has given me less anxiety than I myself could have imagined. The next administration will be a troublesome one, to whomsoever it falls, and our John has been too much worn to contend much longer with conflicting factions. I call him our John, because, when you were at the Cul de sac at Paris, he appeared to me to be almost as much your boy as mine.

...As to the decision of your author, though I wish to see the book {Flourens’s Experiments on the functions of the nervous system in vertebrated animals}, I look upon it as a mere game at push-pin. Incision-knives will never discover the distinction between matter and spirit, or whether there is any or not. That there is an active principle of power in the universe, is apparent; but in what substance that active principle resides, is past our investigation. The faculties of our understanding are not adequate to penetrate the universe. Let us do our duty, which is to do as we would be done by; and that, one would think, could not be difficult, if we honestly aim at it.

Your university is a noble employment in your old age, and your ardor for its success does you honor; but I do not approve of your sending to Europe for tutors and professors. I do believe there are sufficient scholars in America, to fill your professorships and tutorships with more active ingenuity and independent minds than you can bring from Europe. The Europeans are all deeply tainted with prejudices, both ecclesiastical and temporal, which they can never get rid of. They are all infected with episcopal and presbyterian creeds, and confessions of faith. They all believe that great Principle which has produced this boundless universe, Newton’s universe and Herschel’s universe, came down to this little ball, to be spit upon by Jews. And until this awful blasphemy is got rid of, there never will be any liberal science in the world.

I salute your fireside with best wishes and best affections for their health, wealth and prosperity.

{Letter to Thomas Jefferson, 22 January, 1825}”
John Adams, Adams-Jefferson Letters

Deepak Chopra
“If you contemplate the Golden Rule, it turns out to be an injunction to live by grace rather than by what you think other people deserve.”
Deepak Chopra, The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore

Marcel Duchamp
“Do unto others as they wish, but with imagination.”
Marcel Duchamp

Alexandra Katehakis
“If your actions were to boomerang back on you instantly, would you still act the same? Doing to others an act you’d rather not have done to you reveals a powerful internal conflict.”
Alexandra Katehakis

Dejan Stojanovic
“We love the imperfect shapes in nature and in the works of art, look for an intentional error as a sign of the golden key and sincerity found in true mastery.”
Dejan Stojanovic

Marcus Buckingham
“Remember the Golden Rule? "Treat people as you would like to be treated." The best managers break the Golden Rule every day. They would say don't treat people as you would like to be treated. This presupposes that everyone breathes the same psychological oxygen as you. For example, if you are competitive, everyone must be similarly competitive. If you like to be praised in public, everyone else must, too. Everyone must share your hatred of micromanagement.”
Marcus Buckingham

John Rachel
“You can't teach calculus to a chimpanzee. So just share your banana.”
John Rachel, Blinders Keepers

Mahavira
“Can you hold a red-hot iron rod in your hand merely because some one wants you to do so? Then, will it be right on your part to ask others to do the same thing just to satisfy your desires? If you cannot tolerate infliction of pain on your body or mind by others' words and actions, what right have you to do the same to others through your words and deeds?

Do unto others as you would like to be done by. Injury or violence done by you to any life in any form, animal or human, is as harmful as it would e if caused to your own self.”
Mahavira

Jesse Ventura
“Why should I have to hide the fact that I don't believe there’s a supreme being? There’s no proof of it. There’s no harm in saying you’re an atheist. It doesn't mean you treat people any differently. I live by the Golden Rule to do unto others, as you'd want to be treated.

I just simply don't believe in religion, and I don’t believe necessarily that there’s a supreme being that watches over all of us. I follow the teachings of George Carlin. George said he worshipped the sun. He was a fellow atheist. I’m in good company … Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Charles Darwin. It’s not like I’m not with good company and intelligent people. There have been some good, intelligent atheists who have lived in the world.”
Jesse Ventura

W.B. Yeats
“Jonathan Swift made a soul for the gentlemen of this city by hating his neighbor as himself.”
W.B. Yeats, Selected Poems and Four Plays

N.D. Wilson

Rule 2 for Mortals: Love your neighbor as yourself.
Tip 1 for Mortals: Ask God to call your bluffs.”
N.D. Wilson, Death by Living: Life Is Meant to Be Spent

“A man should not be judged by his fame, power, or money, but rather by how much love he gives to others.”
Sandranil Biswas

David Chiles
“Pay it forward with free compliments. They are returned in due time. NetworkEtiquette.net”
David Chiles

Israelmore Ayivor
“Do unto others what you want them to do to you. Don’t deceive if you don’t want to be deceived. Don’t cheat if you don’t want to be cheated. Relationship is mutual. This is the golden rule for all great connections!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Mahavira
“In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.”
Mahavira

Chila Woychik
“I don’t want to believe in boxes or one-way relationships; I’m naïve, you see. I’d rather moon the moon than flip off a friend, but sometimes I flip so I don’t get flipped. And I still think I’m misunderstanding the Golden Rule.”
Chila Woychik, On Being a Rat and Other Observations

“Do unto others; then split.”
Apocryphal

“We as humans tend to overlook lesser beings and things, but we should instead come to love and respect them.”
Sandranil Biswas

Herman Melville
“Let us be Christians toward our fellow-whites, as well as philanthropists toward the blacks our fellow-men. In all things, and toward all, we are enjoined to do as we would be done by.”
Herman Melville, Bartleby, the Scrivener

Lemony Snicket
“Hungry people should be fed. It takes some people a long time to figure this out.”
Lemony Snicket, "Shouldn't You Be in School?"

Steve Shallenberger
“Replacing rudeness and impatience with the Golden Rule may not change the world, but it will change your world and your relationships.”
Steve Shallenberger, Becoming Your Best: The 12 Principles of Highly Successful Leaders

Chila Woychik
“I’m a rat. I used to believe in the Golden Rule but now question it. It’s too easy to be snarky at those who are snarky toward me. I like how it feels—the yellow cheese giving way between pointed teeth. My tail begins to twitch.”
Chila Woychik, On Being a Rat and Other Observations

Steve Shallenberger
“If you REALLY want to know what another person is like, notice how he or she treats the less fortunate or those without position or title.”
Steve Shallenberger, Becoming Your Best: The 12 Principles of Highly Successful Leaders
