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.

Anyone can strengthen another's faith through encouragement, personal example, good natured humoring, praise, flattery, adulation, or take it away by the opposite methods.
