Taoism


"Pity the misfortunes of others; rejoice in the well-being of others; help those who are in want; save men in danger; rejoice at the success of others; and sympathise with their reverses, even as though you were in their place."



"He who can find no room for others lacks fellow feeling, and to him who lacks fellow feeling, all men are strangers."

Chuang Tzu



"The sage has no interest of his own, but regards the interests of the people as his own. He is kind to the kind; he is also kind to the unkind: for virtue is kind. He is faithful to the faithful; he is also faithful to the unfaithful: for Virtue is faithful."

Tao Te Ching, Chapter 49 (~500 BC)
