हितोपदेश, मित्रलाभ - तृष्णा

तृष्णया चेत्परित्यक्तो को दरिद्रः कः ईश्वरः ।
तस्याश्चेत्प्रसरो दत्तो दास्यं च शिरसि स्थितम् ॥

- हितोपदेश, मित्रलाभ

If one does give up greed, it does not matter (to him) if he is poor or rich. On the other hand, if one lets greed thrive, then it is certain that he will end up being its slave.

- Hitopadesha, Mitralabha
