    I'm Not Perfect,

    and neither is anyone else.  I try to hold myself to a higher standard and try to live by the golden rule, but I accept that I will not always be successful, nor will others.  All I can do is try to make myself a better person and help those around me.  That being said, I'm...

    I Try To Live By It

    The golden rule is a great rule and I'm sure most if not all of us have heard it in one form or another. I think the best version is "Treat others the way they wish to be treated". I feel this is the best version because not everyone wants to be treated the same way I do nor the...

    No Other Way To Live

    My interpretation of the golden rule, learned at my greatgrandmothers knee was, treat other as you would like to be treated.  Most of the time that means using kind words and being polite.  One of my favorite books had the story line of every body carried guns and...

    Treat Others as Though You Would Like To Be Not Realistic However .......

    As much as this sounds promising it is probably too idealistic.  It can only exist in an ideal state. What can be achieved is compassion no matter how trivial what seems small to us is significant to the individual. The simple smile, a cheerful greeting etc. every...

    The Only Rule to Live By

    I truly believe the Golden Rule is the only rule to live by.  If everybody in the world treated everyone else the way they would want to be treated, the world would be a paradise.  It is as simple as that.

    Golden Rule

    Its called a rule for a reason. It's a rule of life more than a rule that's been placed upon us. It's more 'karma' nowadays, and I fully believe the way you treat others will be the way you're treated, if not by the people you're treating badly (or well) but by someone else down...

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Please don't treat me a way you yourself would not want to be treated and I will do the same. The Golden Rule is definitely one to live by, yet so many people don't. I don't understand. It seems so simple a request...
