रामायण - अरण्य - कामवृत्तं महीपतिम्

सक्तं ग्राम्येषु भोगेषु कामवृत्तं महीपतिम् |
लुब्धं न बहु मन्यन्ते श्मशानाग्निमिव प्रजाः ||

- रामायण - अरण्य

If king muses himself with the coarse sensory pleasures only and is greedy also, then his subjects will not honor him. They will treat him with same disdain as a fire in a cemetery (burning bodies).

- Ramayana, Aranya
