Dhammapada 84 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

6 - Panditavagga, The Wise
9 - Dhammikatthera Vatthu
Na attahetu na parassa hetu,
na puttamicche na dhanam na rattham;
na iccheyya adhammena samiddhimattano,
sa silava pannava dhammiko siya.
84: For his own sake or for the sake of others, he does no evil; nor does he wish for sons and daughters or for wealth or for a kingdom by doing evil; nor does he wish for success by unfair means; such a one is indeed virtuous, wise and just.
Mya Tin, Daw, tr. The Dhammapada: Verses and Stories. Rangoon: Burma Tipitaka Association, 1986.
