Nights are demonic.
Relieving others of their suffering is the highest worship of god.
Bhagavata Purana 8.7.44
Father, mother, brothers and sons, all follow their own individual destinies. It is only the wife who shares her husband's destiny.
This is the family of the wise man- Dharma is father, forbearance is mother, compassion is wife, qualities are sons. All others are only illusions.
A man's behavior reveals his family background, his manner of speaking his place of origin, respect reveals his affection, and the makeup of his body reveals his food habits.
Chanakya Neeti Darpan: 3.2
To be without qualities is good. Fie upon qualities. While other trees have their jolly good existence, it is the sandalwood trees that are cut.
A backbiter does not cause as much hurt by not being kind as he does by harsh words. A mosquito causes more pain to the ear by its hum than by sucking blood.
Suffering means being under somebody else’s control. Happiness is being under one’s control only. This in a nutshell is a definition of happiness and suffering.
Though one might be exceedingly strong and clever, one should be wary of an unnecessary foe. Though a doctor may be available, for no reason should one carelessly drink poison.

Baudhayana Dharma Sutra 2.3.30
The principal wealth of a man is his wife.
(Mahabharata, Shantiparva 144.14)
Yoga means skill in action.
Bhagavad Gita 2.50
With the idea that the wife is mine, if she is pampered a lot, she rudely insults the very husband. The lamp is mine, if with this idea it is given a deep kiss, it singes badly the very moment the bristles on the face.
A wise man accepts there and then the cooked food, the ripe fruit, a woman in early youth, a wise saying, and a betelnut.
The greatest of warriors is one who conquers the Self.
The king who has control over his senses is truly Indra.

Always respect food. Eat it without criticizing. Express pleasure on seeing food and pray for receiving it forever.
