to an inconsequential man.

Kural 752

Those who have nothing have everyone's contempt,
while the rich are exalted by one and all.

Kural 753

Wealth is an unfailing lamp whose light
reaches every imaginable land, dispelling darkness.

Kural 754

that harms no one, will bring both piety and pleasure.

Kural 755

Kural 756

tax and customs--these constitute the royal revenues.

Kural 757

Kural 758

Kural 760
