In March when I was at one of the funerals for our family, the gift shop for the Sisters of St. Joseph in LaGrange had a poster which I found quite lovely & thought I would share it with you to think about. This poster & many others lovely things can be found at http://www.motagifts.com/ The poster has the following passages on it:
And who does not want to be treated with Love?
Blessed are those who prefer others before themselves.
~ Baha'u'llah - Tablets of Baha'ullah 71
Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.
~ Udana-Varqu 5:18
In happiness and suffering in joy and grief regard all creatures as you would your own self.
~ Lord Mahavir 24th Tirtankara
What is hateful to you do not do to your neighbor that is the entire Torah the rest is commentary go and learn.
~ Rabbi Hillel to Shammai
Talmud Shabbat 31a
Be not estranged from one another for God dwells in every heart.
~ Sri Guru Granth Sahib
Human nature is good only when it does not do unto another whatever is no good for its own self.
~ Dadistan-i-Dinik, 94:5
No one is a believer until you desire for another that which you desire for yourself.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
~ Jesus Luke 6:13
Some others I found:
This is the sum of all duty: do not do to others what would cause pain if done to you.
~ Mahabharata 5:1517
Respect for all life is the foundation
~ The Great Law of Peace
Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto you.
~ Analects 15:23
Makes one really wonder why we see so many differences to separate us when we could look for similarities to connect us!
