महाभारत - आदि - शम

पृथिवी रत्न संपूर्णा हिरण्यं पशवः स्त्रियः ।
नालमेकस्य तत्सर्वमिति मत्वा शमं व्रजेत् ॥

- महाभारत, आदि

pRuthvivI ratnam sampUrNA hiraNyam pashavaH striyaH ।
nA alamekasya tat sarvamapi matva shamam vrajet ॥

- mahAbhArata, Adi

This earth gives lot of gems, gold, animals and women. Even if all of that is given to one person he will still not be satisfied. The moral of the story being that greed can not be satisfied by trying to satiate it.

- Mahabharata, Adi
