हितोपदेश - अनर्थकारण

यौवनं धनसंपत्तिः प्रभुत्वमविवेकिता |
एकैकमप्यनर्थाय किमु यत्र चतुष्टयं ||

- हितोपदेश

Youth, wealth, power, stupidity - any one of them is a recipe for calamity. What can I say when all of them are present in one place? The poet is commenting on what could happen to a stupid prince.
