“Seldom make fun about the future of any person; irrespective of present condition. Never underestimate the power of time; it turns even a worthless coal into a priceless diamond. ”


“Speak the truth in such a way that it should be fair. Never speak that assumed truth, unfairly. Never speak untruth, even though it might be pleasant. This is the path of perennial Dharma.”


“One must never place excessive faith on one’s Dhana (Wealth), Jana (People) and Yauvana (Youthfulness) for these three are the most transient in our lives – there today, gone tomorrow.”


“Pursuing happiness is but the nature of every creature. But there is no happiness without Dharma. Therefore, pursue Dharma.”


"Wealth cannot give happiness by itself. One has to understand that it is always a means, never an end. By recognizing wealth as an end, it becomes a source of misery. Wealth is temporary and unsteady. It moves from one to another. Greed drives people without knowledge of wealth to destruction. Therefore, knowledge and wisdom are crucial in earning, retaining and dissipating wealth, righteously."


Kautilya a.k.a. Chanakya
