Words of Wisdom – Panchatantra

From covetousness anger proceeds; from covetousness lust is born; from covetousness come delusion and perdition. Covetousness is the cause of sin.

Many men can utter words of wisdom; few men can practice it themselves.

Bit by bit, the wise enjoy the wealth they earn, slowly, very slowly, as some precious elixir is savoured drop by drop, not gulped unceremoniously.

Silence leads to success in everything.

By banding together the weak can become unassailable to a powerful foe.
