We should be Good to our fine Friends here!

The Buddha on the Universality of Friendliness:
I am a friend of all bipeds;
I am a friend of those with four feet,
I am a friend of the many-footed,
I am a friend of those with no feet!

Anguttara Nikaya 4.67

As I am, so are others... As others are, so am I...
Having thus identified self and others,
Never harm anyone, nor hurt any being.
Sutta Nipata 3.710

Among tigers, lions, leopards, and bears I lived in the jungle.
No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone...
Uplifted by such universal friendliness, I enjoyed the forest.
Finding great solace in such sweetly silenced solitude...
Suvanna-sama Jātaka 540

With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart and mind:
Beaming above, below, and all around, unobstructed, without trace of hostility.
Sutta Nipata I, 8

Train yourself in doing good that lasts and brings genuine happiness.
Cultivate generosity, the life of peace, and a mind of infinite universal love.
Itivuttaka 22
