Our motto “World Brotherhood and Peace Through Poetry” was conceived from he ideas of the “Golden Rule” and “The Way to Peace and Happiness.”
THE GOLDEN RULE

- As ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. (Luke 7:12)
- One should seek for others the happiness one desires for himself. (Buddha, Indian philosopher). Live on good terms with thy fellow citizens. (From Indian books)
- What you would not want done to yourself, do not do to others. (Confucius, Chinese philosopher). Interpreted also by his disciple Tshen-Tseu: Love your neighbor as yourself.
- The true rule of life is to guard and to do by the things of others as one would do to his own. (Hindu Scripture)
- In your dealings with others, harm not that you be not harmed. (Seneca, Roman philosopher).
- Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Socrates, Greek philosopher).
- We should behave toward friends as we would wish friends to behave toward us.(Aristotle, Greek philosopher of Stagira).
- Do to no one what you would not want done to you. Tobit 4:15, a book of the Old Testament rejected as apocryphal by the Jews & Protestants but received by the Roman Catholic Church. It contains the life of Tobit, a Jew carried captive to Nineveh, and his son Tobias; written probably in 4th century B.C. by a Jew.
