[Buddha-l] Say what?

Every day I get a Peace Quote in my inbox. Being a Buddhist I am of course an
incurable absolute pacifist, so I love these quotes. Today's quote took me by
surprise. It is attributed to the Buddha, but I have never seen anything
quite like it in any Buddhist text, although I have frequently said almost
exactly what this alleged quote says while teaching mettaa-bhaavanaa.
Can someone identify this quote, or at least some qutation of which this might
be an apt paraphrase?
