Excessive anger is a great harm, but greater still is The unmindfulness born of excessive pleasure. Just as perpetual poverty slowly slays one's knowledge, So does frequent forgetfulness destroy one's prestige.
- Tirukkural 54: 531-532

It's easy to see The errors of others, But hard to see Your own. You winnow like chaff The errors of others, But conceal your own-- Like a cheat, an unlucky throw. If you focus on the errors of others, Constantly finding fault, Your effluents flourish. You're far from their ending.
- Dhammapada 18, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

I saw a man in Paradise for a deed as simple as cutting down a tree that stood in the middle of a road, causing wayfarers much distress.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Ibn Umar

To endure the cross is not tragedy; it is the suffering which is the fruit of an exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

There is no reward for following the commandments in this world.
- Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 39b
