Purity in Action
Good alliance brings success; And good deeds all one needs. Avoid always deeds that do not lead to Lasting good and fame. Those who seek greatness must avoid What will stain their name. Men of clear understanding Will not do mean acts even in distress. Do not do what you will regret; and if you do, Better not repeat the same. Do not do what the wise condemn Even to save your starving mother. Better the pinching poverty of the wise Than the pile of wealth hoarded by vice. Ends achieved without any regard to the means Will bring grief.. What's gained with other's tears will go in tears; What's won fair, though lost, will surge again. Stocking ill-got wealth is like storing Water in an unbaked pot.
