याज्ञवल्क्य - राजधर्म

प्रजापीडनसंतापात्समुद्भूतो हुताशनः |
राज्ञः कुलं श्रियं प्राणान् चादग्ध्वा न निवर्तते ||

- याज्ञवल्क्य

The heat from the hatred felt by the subjects will not relent until it burns down the king, his dynasty and his wealth. Such is the hatred that is caused by a king who builds his treasure by hurting his subjects.

- Yajnavalkya
