“Every man takes care that his neighbor does not cheat him.
But the day comes when he begins to care that he does not cheat his neighbor.
Then all goes well.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It is a very high goal: free and responsible development of the individual,so that he may place his powers freely and gladly in the service of mankind. ”
“The Golden Rule would reconcile capital and labor,
all political contention and uproar, all selfishness and greed.”
“It has long been clear to me that unless we learn to apply the Golden Rule globally, treating all nations, all peoples without exception as we would wish to be treated ourselves, taking their aspirations and difficulties as seriously as we take our own, we are unlikely to have a viable world to hand off to the next generation.”
– Karen Armstrong
