Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.
- Bhagavad Gita 2:49
The path to material gain goes one way, the way to Unbinding, another. Realizing this, the monk, a disciple to the Awakened One, should not relish offerings, should cultivate seclusion instead.
- Dhammapada, 5, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
