Attachment is the root of all unhappiness and attachment causes fear – Mahabharata Quotes

The root of all mental ailments is affection. Affection makes a man attached and that leads to misery.

Just as water quenches fire, knowledge quenches mental ailments.
Just as a hot iron ball affects the water in a pot, mental pain affects the body.
Attachment is the root of all unhappiness and attachment causes fear.
Every kind of happiness and unhappiness results from attachment.
It is attachment that leads to the desire for material objects. Both are evil, but attachment is more evil than the desire for material objects.
