Tirukkural 940: Gambling

As the gambler loves (his vice) the more he loses by it, so does the soul love (the body) the more it suffers through it.

You don't discipline yourself to attain the feeling of love. You attain the feeling of love and then you want to discipline yourself because you love the discipline, because it brings more love.
