Tirukkural 577: Benignity

Men without kind looks are men without eyes; those who (really) have eyes are also not devoid of kind looks.

What is the binding force that keeps youths in the home? Love. If you love your children completely, they won't want to leave. You won't be able to force them out of the house, even if you try. You are bound together by bands of steel made of love.
—Gurudeva
