Tirukkural 547: The Right Sceptre

The king defends the whole world; and justice, when administered without defect, defends the king.

What is the binding force that keeps youths in the home? Love. If you love your children completely, they won't want to leave. You won't be able to force them out of the house, even if you try. You are bound together by bands of steel made of love.
—Gurudeva
