Tirukkural 557: The Cruel Sceptre

As is the world without rain, so live a people whose king is without kindness.

Contemplation is man's power over his mind as he begins to go within himself. Concentration is man's power over his mind as he goes through life working out life's problems. And meditation is man's wisdom.
