Oh, Yeah

“Would you receive benefits? Bestow benefits then. Would you have mercy? Be merciful then. Would you be commended? Commend others. Would you be loved? Then love. You be the judge yourself; you be the lawgiver of your own life. That which you hate, do not to another. Cannot you endure reproach? Do not reproach others. Cannot you endure to have others envy you? Do not envy others. Cannot you endure to be deceived? Do not deceive others” (Burroughs, Irenicum, p. 377).
