तृष्णे देवि नमस्तुभ्यं याया वित्तान्विता अपि ।
अकृत्येषु नियोज्यन्ते भ्राम्यन्ते दुर्गमेष्वपि ॥
- पञ्चतंत्र, अपरीक्षितकारक
Oh Goddess of greed!! I salute with respect. The reason I do that is because I think you are very powerful. Under your influence even wealthy people (whose needs are satisfied) will wander in desolate areas - forts and hills (searching for money).
