Thanks for this Rick and I agree with all but one of these quotes about the golden rule. I do always speak and treat people how I want to be treated myself. I don't think it costs anything to be courteous.

The one thing I don't agree with though is that the customer is always right as in nine times out of ten there is one person who will try their luck and will turn nasty when they do not get what they want. This comes from experience of working on a Customer Service Desk in a supermarket. xxx

Thanks for this! I remember as a small child reading Charles Kingsley's Water Babies and being completely confused by the two ladies in the story... Mrs Do-as-you-would-be-done-by and Mrs Be-done-by-as you-did.

Couldn't understand it then, but it makes perfect sense now! Obviously moral education went straight over my head then! Sue :)

Rick - The application of the Golden Rule has proven to be a time tested principle of reciprocity which benefits all. These days, more of it would be better. I see a lot of TGR around here at Wealthy Affiliate. Thanks for sharing.

Right on! But have you also heard of Elur Nedlog Rick?

If you have not, it is the Golden Rule spelled backward! And meaning as follows:

"Do unto yourself anything you WOULDN'T do unto someone else" ;-)

Think about it....(it's another Martha Beck philosophy)!

Injoy Brother!

A very important reminder, Rick, for any assembly of people.
The famous;"Treat the others in the way you want to be treated". or in different wording,
"And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them." can be applied to any kind of human relationship- friendship, romance, family, business, whatever.
If this principle is not followed, things fall apart....:))
