It is truth which bears this world, the sun shines because of truth, and the wind blows because of truth; all are established in truth only.
Chanakya Neeti Darpan: 5.19
These three are destroyed soon: Trees on the bank of a river, a woman who lives in another's house and a king without ministers
Chanakya Neeti Darpan: 2.15
Amongst birds the crow, in animals the dog, in saints the one prone to anger, and in humans the one who criticizes everybody, these are the outcastes (chandala).
Chanakya Neeti Darpan: 6.2
Think of the other's wife as your mother, and your own wife as half of your body.
Bhagavata Purana 4.16.17
"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
The mother is a thousand times great than the father.
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
A well-born person is worthy of respect, more than him is an artist, more than him even is a scholar, still more than him is one of good conduct, more that still him is a rich person, more than even a rich person is a philanthropist. But even his fame is eclipsed by him who has never begged.
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)
That man may be considered to have (really) subdued his sense-organs who on hearing and touching and seeing or tasting and smelling (any thing) neither rejoices nor repents.
He who allows the occasion for coming to the assistance of his friends to pass is worthless, even if he were to achieve great things.
Valmiki Ramayana, 4.29.14
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.
By performing action without attachment one attains the Highest.
Bhagavad Gita 3.19
Money, relatives, age, karma and knowledge, all these are to be respected. The latter ones more than the former (For e.g. relatives are more important than money etc.)
One who respects all three – Mother, Father and Guru, he has respected all Dharmas. One who disrespects them; he has failed in all ways.
If one has not given up hypocrisy, what has one to do with vows and austerities? If the blindness of the eye is not gone, what use is looking at a glass or lamp?
All these are useless: Rainfall in the sea, feeding those with already a full stomach, donating wealth to the already rich, and lighting a lamp in the day.
Chanakya Neeti Darpan: 5.16
Yoga means skill in action.
Bhagavad Gita 2.50
Like the featherless young bird crying out for its mother, the hungry calf eager for cow's milk and like the wife who has intense longing for her beloved husband away from home, so am I, O lotus-eyed god, keen to behold you.
Shrimad Bhagavata Purana 6.11.26
When the destruction (loss) of the whole impends, a wise man foregoes half (a part of it).
