उद्वेजनीयो भूतानां नृशंसः पापकर्मकृत् ।
त्रयाणामपि लोकानामीश्वरोऽपि न तिष्ठति ॥
- रामायण, अरण्य
udvejanIyo bhUtAnAM nRushamsaH pApa karma kRut ।
trayAnAm api lokAnAm eeshvaro api na tiShThati ॥
- ramAyaNa, araNya
If a king behaves in such a way to make his subjects more anxious (and afraid) by his sinful acts, then it does not matter even if he is the lord of three worlds. He will still perish.
- Ramayana, Aranya
