Dhammapada 24 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

II- Appamadavagga, Heedfulness
2 - Kumbhaghosakasetthi Vatthu
Utthanavato satimato,
sucikammassa nisammakarino;
sannatassa dhammajivino,
appamattassa yaso bhivaddhati.
24: If a person is energetic, mindful, pure in his thought, word and deed, and if he does everything with care and consideration, restrains his senses, earns his living according to the Law (Dhamma) and is not unheedful, then, the fame and fortune of that mindful person steadily increase.
