Riches ruin the man
weak in discernment,
but not those who seek
the beyond.

Through craving for riches
the man weak in discernment
ruins himself
as he would others.

– Dhammapada [24]

Even the evil meet with good fortune as long as their evil has yet to mature. But when it’s matured that’s when they meet with evil. Even the good meet with bad fortune as long as their good has yet to mature. But when it’s matured that’s when they meet with good fortune.

– Dhammapada [9]

How, monks, does the practitioner remain established in the observation of the Four Noble Truths?

A practitioner is aware,
“This is suffering” as it arises,
“This is the cause of suffering” as it arises,
“This is the end of suffering” as it arises,
“This is the path which leads to the end of suffering” as it arises.

– Sathipatthana sutta

The world’s end can never be reached
by means of traveling through the world,
Yet without reaching the world’s end
there is no release from suffering.

Therefore, truly, the world-knower, the wise one,
gone to the world’s end, fulfiller of the holy life,
having known the world’s end, at peace,
longs not for this world or another.

– Buddha, “The Connected Discourses of the Buddha”
