Tirukkural 174: Not Coveting

The wise who have conquered their senses and are free from crime, will not covet (the things of others), with the thought "we are destitute".

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The good-and-bad concept should be thrown out with a lot of other things, including the up-and-down concept. There is no good; there is no bad. You don't raise your consciousness, nor do you lower it.
—Gurudeva
