The soul floats like the lotus on the lake unmoved, unruffled by the tide.
The rivers, the flowers, the moon'a phases, disappear but return, not so youth. Katha Saritsagar
Amass that wealth which has nothing to fear from kings or thieves, and which does not desert thee in death.
Having crossed the sea of Fascination, and having killed the giants, Inclination, Aversion, the wise shall, married to Peace, enjoy repose of soul.
As the sun is not sullied by the defects of external objects, so the inner soul of all beings is not sullied by the misery of the world.
The storm may uproot the trees, but not the mountains
Wealth stops at the house, friends and relatives at the time of death, good and evil deeds follow the dying person
There's no greater enemy than pride / ego
As people abandon old and threadbare clothes to put on others new;
so casts the embodied soul its worn-out frame to enter other forms. Bhagavad
The friendship of the bad is like the shade of some precipitous bank with crumbling sides, which, falling, buries him who sits beneath.
Who are destitute of sight? Those who turn a blind eye. Who are the deafest? Those who ignore good advice.
Wherever you roam your deeds will follow you as the shadow the substance.
They know not their own defects who search for the defects of others.
Who has no sense of his own, what can be done for him? What will a mirror do for him who cannot see?
Don't be the slave of money nor of money worshippers
He who learns without real understanding fails to benefit; just as the spoon doesn't taste the sweetness of sugar.
Meditate on your own defects, not that of others
Look at the clouds, how they roll on,
Look at us, how soon we're gone!
