Tamil verse of the week (and probably the only post of the week)

Just as wise men know the goodness of non-coveting,
So Fortune herself knows their goodness and draws near.

There is a desire for another's possessions which is thoughtlessly destructive.
There is a pride which, refusing to covet, is mindfully triumphant.

-Tirukkural 18:179-180

Tamil verse of the week

To those who cannot smile in joy the wide world
Lies engulfed in darkness even in broad daylight.

Great wealth amassed by men devoid of that virtue called courtesy
Is like good milk that has soured in an unclean vessel.

-Tirukkural 100:999-1000
