Ethic of Reciprocity - The Golden Rule - Part 3

Continuing with our thrid month on the subject of the Ethic of Reciprocity (commonly known in North America as the Golden Rule), we bring you examples from Judaism, Zoroastrianism and from the Unitarian Universalists:

Zoroastrianism: "Whatever is disagreeable to yourself do not do unto others."
Shayast-na-Shayast 13:29

Judaism: "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man. This is the law: all the rest is commentary."
Talmud, Shabbat 31a.

Unitarian Universalist: "We affirm and promote respect for the interdependent of all existence of which we are a part."
Unitarian principles
