The Golden Rule

Live by the Golden Rule 

The golden rule is simple enough, and true enough, that virtually every religion and ideology in the world deems it as one of its most important values.  Treat everyone the way you’d want to be treated…plain and simple.  Live by the golden rule, and always show respect to others.  Remember: You can tell virtually all you need to know about a man by the way he treats other people.
