Lessons from Thirukkural

If we accept that man should enjoy happiness for his good deeds; why should we deem it wrong for him to suffer sorrows for his vile ones.

One-sided love is pain. But mutual love, like balanced load on both sides, is sweet.
The wound of fire is cured soon by treatment within days; those of harsh words remain raw as long one is alive.
He who controls his five senses – lust, ire, greed, attachment and envy – becomes powerful.
Deeds performed with clean mind are known as righteousness. Those done without mind and heart are mere show pieces.
