Vidur’s Advice to Dhritarashtra

He that is learned, examining everything carefully and reflecting well, should, from a distance, avoid the friendship of vile and wicked-minded persons.

Excess of pride, excess in speech, excess in eating, anger, the desire of enjoyment and intestine dissensions, O King, are the six sharp swords that cut off the period of life allotted to creatures. It is these which kill men, and not death. Knowing this, blessed be you!
He that accepts the teaching of the wise, he that is acquainted with the rules of morality, he that is liberal, he that eats having first dedicated the food to the gods and the Pitris, he that envies none, he that is incapable of doing anything that injures others, he that is grateful, truthful, humble and learned succeeds in attaining to heaven.
