This should be unlinked from all Japanese sentences, I believe.

All?

They all sound like OK matches to me.

Note that one is a kotowaza.

The first one is the way I've usually heard it said.

[#174557] represents the "negative form" of the Golden Rule, while this English translation - the positive one.

I agree that they're clearly different. Unlinked.

I think they're logically different enough.

I do good things to others because I'm happy when they do good things to me, but this doesn't mean that I refrain from doing bad things to others because I'm unhappy when they do bad things to me. And vice verca.

> I think they're logically different enough.
+1

In this particular case, we are dealing with two different formulas, in fact. Though they seem the same at a glance, they possess different ideas.

(If the majority of the members think they're close enough to link, please link back the sentences I unlinked.
