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

“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

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

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

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

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, The Adams-Jefferson Letters: The Complete Correspondence Between Thomas Jefferson and Abigail and John Adams

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

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

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

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.”
Lord Mahāvīra

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

“Instead of seeing how much pain I can dish out towards those I disagree with, or who I believe have done me wrong, I seek to follow the golden rule and use my words and behavior to create more of what the world needs – love, compassion, and connection.”
Aspen Baker

Johnny Hart
“Whoever has the gold makes the rules.”
Johnny Hart

Walter Kaufmann
“The Golden Rule is intolerable; if millions did to others whatever they wished others to do to them, few would be safe from molestation. The Golden Rule shows anything but moral genius, and the claim by which it is followed in the Sermon on the Mount -- 'this is the Law and the Prophets' -- makes little sense.”
Walter Kaufmann, Without Guilt and Justice: From Decidophobia to Autonomy

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

A.D. Aliwat
“They say ‘Treat others as you’d like to be treated,’ but that saying’s messed up. It should be ‘Treat others as they’d like to be treated.’&nbsp”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

A.D. Aliwat
“They say ‘Treat others as you’d like to be treated,’ but that saying’s messed up. It should be ‘Treat others as they’d like to be treated.’”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

David Smail
“Do as you would be done by' informs every action of the superconscientious person, but it never seems to occur to him or her that this is a rule which should apply to anyone else, so that 'others should treat me as I treat them' simply doesn't enter the frame.”
David Smail, How to Survive Without Psychotherapy

Alice Hoffman
“Do as you will, but harm no one. What you give will be returned to you threefold.”
Alice Hoffman, Magic Lessons

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don’t die without mining the gold in your mind.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

Thich Nhat Hanh
“We have to find ways to nourish and express our compassion. When we come into contact with the other person, our thoughts and actions should express our mind of compassion, even if that person says and does things that are not easy to accept. We practice in this way until we see clearly that our love is not contingent upon the other person being lovable.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

“Silence has many stories weaved in it.”
Ansuman Das

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Everything in religious law comes down to the refinements, applications, and interpretations of the Golden Rule, “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want them to do to you.” This we saw was the logic behind Hammurabi’s rule.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

“Self observation is the first sprout of awaken mind. It surely leads to certain prosperity.”
Gagandeep Kaushal

“Only one golden rule: Treat others with the same respect you would want to be treated.”
Marty Rubin

Raymond Khoury
“God doesn't care about what you eat or what you drink. He doesn't care about how often you pray to him or what words you use or where you go to do that....He only cares about how you behave towards one another.”
Raymond Khoury, The Sign
