Do Unto Others

The great Rabbi Hillel, who lived in the 1st Century, BCE, and into the first few years of the 1st Century, CE, was once challenged by a would-be convert to recite the entirety of Jewish Law while standing on one foot. Rabbi Hillel obliged the man. Taking his stance on one foot he said, "What is harmful to you, do not do to any person. This is whole Torah, and the rest is merely commentary."
