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
Some reactions are healthy; others are unhealthy. The reaction to a reaction is destructive, whereas the reaction itself, when viewed with a balanced mind, eventually becomes an asset.
