Man has right over only that much wealth as is enough to satisfy his hunger. He who lays a claim on the surplus is a thief and deserves punishment.
Bhagavata Purana 7.14.8
Obeisance to that Kali (age) where the words of wife are the Vedas, to earn money is Dharma and ones own intellect is authority.
One should be careful in speech, restrained in one's thoughts and do no wrong with one's body. Once these three parts of action are cleared, then one will gain the path of the sages.
Dhammapada Atthakatha, Bk. 20 (6)
Old age stands threatening like a tigress. Diseases are striking the body like enemies and life is leaking out like water from a broken jar; but, strange to say, men are still regardless of doing good.
In any endeavor, it is the sentiment (bhava) behind it that is the sole determinant. A man embraces his wife with one feeling, and his mother with another.
Skanda Purana. Maheshvarakhanda, Kaumarikhanda. 42.62
Indulge a child till five years; for the next ten, chide him to mend his faults; but, as soon he becomes sixteen years old, start treating him like a friend.
Chanakya Neeti Darpan: 3.18
Evenness of mind (samata) is called yoga.
Bhagavad Gita 2.48
"Dharma is called 'dharma' because it upholds (dharan) the world. Therefore, whatever possesses this characteristic of support and sustenance is dharma."
Mahabharata Shanti Parva 109.11
Who does not become proud by a stroke of good luck? Who is not laid low by death? Which beggar can be dignified? Whose mind is not affected by a woman? Who can escape when caught by rogues? Who can be a favorite of kings? Who has ever heard or seen an honest gambler, a clean crow, a woman not swiftly moved by passion, a benevolent serpent or a drunkard fond of science?
Panchatantra, Book I (157)
Question to Goddess Lakshmi: "Where do you live?" Her Answer: "I live in women devoted to their husbands".
Mahabharata Anushasana Parva 11.14
Where women are revered, there the gods rejoice; but where they are not, all endeavors fail.
The wise do not seek to hasten the ripening of that which is not yet ripe, but rather they wisely await its ripening.
Digha Nikaya ii 333
No truth, no austerities, no control over senses, no mercy for all beings this is the definition of a Chandala (an out-caste).
Alone is a man born, alone does he die. Alone he enjoys the fruits of his good and evil deeds.
The good people who earn their livelihood with righteous means, who are attached only to their wives, who have control over their senses and who love their guests there is salvation in their house itself.
The relinquishing of the present happiness and the pursuit of a future one is never the policy of intelligent people.
Mahabharata, Shanti Parva, 140.36
A dog wags its tail, falls at the feet of its master and lies down flat on the ground to show its mouth and stomach to the man who feeds it: but the noble elephant looks with a clam and steady glance upon the face of its master and condescends to take its food after a series of soothing and flattering entreaties.
The fish which lives deep in the sea gets caught, the deer which runs faster than the wind gets bound, even the bird, which can discern a piece of meat from a distance of several miles cannot see the net nearby - all because of the vagaries of fate.
Padma Purana. 2.81.28-29
He, who, in spite of the wealth that he has neither gives it away in charity nor puts it to self-use; that wealth is not his. He is the like a fake man made of straw who protects the crop for the sake of somebody else.
Women are like flowers.
Kama Sutra 3.2.6
