|So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Torah and the Prophets [Matthew 7:12 - Yeshua].
Whatever is disagreeable to yourself do not do unto others [Zoroastrian - Shayast-na-Shayast 13:29]
We should conduct ourselves toward others as we would have them act toward us [Aristotle, 385 BCE].
Hurt not others with that which pains yourself [Buddhism - Udana-Varga ].
No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself [Islam - Hadith ].
And if your eyes are turned towards justice, choose you for your neighbour that which you want for yourself [Baha'i - Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, 30].
What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow men. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary [Hillel].
This is the sum of duty: Do naught to others which would cause you pain if done to you [Hindu - The Mahabharata] .
Do to another what you would have him do to you... you need this law alone. It is the foundation of all the rest [Confucius, 500 BCE].
Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire [Shinto - Analects, 15:24 ]
And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit
