Sayings of Sri Ram from the Kishkindha Kanda in Ramayan

The rain has washed everything clean; there is no trace of dust to be found anywhere. This is how anger, when it surfaces, drives away dharma, making one incapable to differentiate between the right and the wrong.
The earth is decked with rich crops, even as a generous and charitable person is endowed with riches that will benefit everyone.
Wealth does not adorn a person who is miserly and refuses to part with even a penny to help others.
Green grass grows and covers the path just like proud people who cover the path shown by the scriptures. They insist on their own opinions and disregard the words of wisdom of holy books. We must follow the scriptures and not get misled by futile words.
