"Let him not destroy or cause to be destroyed, any life at all, nor sanction the acts of those who do. Let him refrain from even hurting any creature, both those that are strong and those that tremble in the world."
From the Sutta-Nipata, part of the Pali Canon, a Buddhist scripture from the first century BCE.
