अतितृष्णा न कर्तव्या

अतितृष्णा न कर्तव्या तृष्णां नैव परित्यजेत्।
शनैः शनैश्च भोक्तव्यं वित्तम् स्वयमुपार्जितम्॥
atitṛṣṇā na kartavyā tṛṣṇāṁ naiva parityajet|
śanaiḥ śanaiśca bhoktavyaṁ vittam svayamupārjitam||
Excessive desire must be avoided; nor should one give up desire completely.
In a slow (controlled) manner, one should enjoy self-earned wealth.
(I am sure, if rightly interpreted, this subhāṣitam emphasises karmayogam).

शान्तितुल्यं तपो नास्ति

शान्तितुल्यं तपो नास्ति तोषान्न परमं सुखम्।
नास्ति तृष्णापरो व्याधिर्न च धर्मो दयापरः।
śāntitulyaṁ tapo nāsti toṣānna paramaṁ sukham|
nāsti tṛṣṇāparo vyādhirna ca dharmo dayāparaḥ|
There is no penance like peace; there is no greater happiness than satisfaction.
There is no greater disease than desire; there is no greater dharma than mercy/compassion
