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".

Bribery corrupts the giver, the taker and the nation. To participate in bribery is to go into a deceptive, illegal partnership between the briber and the bribed.
