The 10,000 things are all there in me

"The ten thousand things are all there in me. And there's no joy greater than looking within and finding myself faithful to them. Treat others as you would be treated. Devote yourself to that, for there's no more direct approach to humanity."

~ Mencius XIII.4 (translated by David Hinton)

Humanity (ren): our inherent goodness, encompassing compassion, benevolence, respect, and virtue.
