TAOISM      6th century BCE


Regard your neighbour's gain as your own gain,
and your neighbour's loss as your own loss.
The good man ought to pity
the malignant tendencies of others;
to rejoice over their excellence;
to help them in their straits;
to regard their gains as if they were his own,
and their losses in the same way.
       ...The Thai-Shang, 3
