महाभारत - उद्योग - धर्म

न जातु कामान्न भयान्न लोभात्
    धर्मं जह्याज्जीवितस्यापि हेतोः ।
नित्यो धर्मः सुखदुःखे त्वनित्ये
    जीवो नित्यो हेतुरस्य त्वनित्यः ॥

- महाभारत, उद्योग

One must not give up Dharma succumbing to lust, or fear, or greed, or simply to the desire to live. Dharma is eternal. Happiness and Sorrow are temporary and will pass. Life (as in life on this world) is eternal. Each living being (us) and the reason for it to be in this world is temporary.

- Mahabharata, Udyoga
