Dhammapada 62 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

5 - Balavagga, The Fool
3 - Anandasetthi Vatthu

Putta ma'tthi dhanam ma'tthi, iti balo vihannati;
atta hi attano natthi, kuto putta kuto dhanam.
62: "I have sons, I have wealth"; with this (feeling of attachment) the fool is afflicted. Indeed, he himself is not his own, how can sons and wealth be his?
Mya Tin, Daw, tr. The Dhammapada: Verses and Stories. Rangoon: Burma Tipitaka Association, 1986.
