Fred Flintstone& the Golden Rule


“Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.” -Confucius (c.500 BC)

“Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets” (Matthew 7:12 NCV, see also Luke 6:31). c. 4 BC to 27 AD

“There is nothing dearer to man than himself; therefore, as it is the same thing that is dear to you and to others, hurt not others with what pains yourself” (Dhammapada, Northern Canon, 5:18). c. 563-483 BC   Buddha

“Love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18) c. 1450 BC to 450 BC

“One who regards all creatures as his own self, and behaves towards them as towards his own self attains happiness. One should never do to another what one regards as hurtful to one’s own self. This, in brief, is the rule of righteousness. In happiness and misery, in the agreeable and the disagreeable, one should judge effects as if they came to one’s own self.” (Mahabharata bk. 13: Anusasana Parva, §113) c. 400 BC

“Universal love is to regard another’s state as one’s own. A person of universal love will take care of his friend as he does of himself, and take care of his friend’s parents as his own. So when he finds his friend hungry he will feed him, and when he finds him cold he will clothe him.” (Book of Mozi, ch. 4) c. 479-438 BC   Mo Tzu

Fred Flintstone helps a stranger who was robbed and left to die. He says “I’d want him to help me.” 1,000,000 BC

One thought on “Fred Flintstone& the Golden Rule

  1. “Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.” – Confucius. This is the golden rule that I try to live by and it is clear you believe the same. How I expect to be treated is how I will treat others. It is the most important thing to understand that what we put out into the world is what we get back; great collection of quotes, you couldn’t have better highlighted this point.
