"Every being fears punishment; every being fears death, just as you do. Therefore do not kill or cause to kill."

Dhammapada Ch. 10

"Comparing oneself to others in such terms as "Just as I am so are they, just as they are so am I," he should neither kill nor cause others to kill."

Sutta Nipata 705

"Is there a deed, Rahula, thou dost wish to do? Then bethink thee thus: Is this deed conducive to my own harm, or to others harm, or to that of both? Then is this a bad deed entailing suffering. Such a deed must thou surely not do."

Majjhima Nikaya 1.415
