कर्म लोकविरुद्धं तु कुर्वाणं क्षणदचर |
तीक्ष्णं सर्वजनो हन्ति सर्पं दुष्टमिवागतम् ||
- रामायण - अरण्य
Oh Nocturnal being (demon)! If you continue your actions that are harmful to the general public, those people will finally kill you. They will treat you exactly like a harmful snake that entered their house.
- Ramayana, Aranya
