From the Dhammapada, Verse 270:
[tweetquote]”One is not called noble who harms living beings. By not harming living beings one is called noble.” The Buddha[/tweetquote]
This is a genuine quote from the Buddhist scriptures, said to have been uttered by the Buddha himself:
‘As I am, so are these.
As are these, so am I.’
Drawing the parallel to yourself,
neither kill nor get others to kill.
It’s from a text called the Nalaka Sutta, which is found in the Sutta Nipata)
