Jainism


"Have benevolence towards all living beings, joy at the sight of the virtuous, compassion and sympathy for the afflicted, and tolerance towards the indolent and ill-behaved."

Tattvarthasutra 7:11



"Killing a living being is killing one's own self; showing compassion to a living being is showing compassion to oneself. He who desires his own good, should avoid causing any harm to a living being."

Suman Suttam, verse 151



"One should treat all beings as he himself would be treated."

Mahavira, Agamas Sutrakritanga 1.10.13
