    Where, in the Torah, is that statement made?

    Nowhere, the source is clearly stated in the lower right corner.

    First thing I thought of was not to drive over 25mph in a residential.

    I find many struggle with the law.

    It is not in the Torah and, despite @Heyo , it is not what Hillel said. You can find the story in the Talmud, Shabbat 31a.

    I should have checked. I remembered the quote to be from Maimonides but when I saw the quote, I thought "the internet must know better than I".

    I find under the Constitution of the Mosaic Law for ancient Israel the ^ above ^ to be true - Leviticus 19:18.
    However, now under the 'Law of Christ' (Galatians 6:2) I find Jesus gave a New commandment at John 13:34-35.
    Christians are to have the same self-sacrificing love for others as Jesus has.
    In other words, to Now love neighbor MORE than self, more than the old Golden Rule.

    Yes, in the Law under the Constitution for ancient Israel - Leviticus 19:18 - the whole Mosaic Law hung, but under 'Christ's Law' (Galatians 6:2 B) Jesus gave a NEW commandment (John 15:12) and as found at John 13:34-35 to Now love as Jesus loves, Jesus loves with a self-sacrificing spirit, and Now he taught to love neighbor MORE than self. More than the old Mosaic Law's Golden Rule.
