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
This physical world, though necessary to our evolution, is the embodiment of impermanence, of constant change. Thus, we take care not to become overly attached to it.
