Bhagavad Gita

कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते मां फलेषु कदाचन । मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि ।।

Bhagavad Gita, Chapter II, Verse 47.

Karmanye Vaadhika-raste, Maa Phaleshu Kadachana; Maa karma-phala-hetur-bhoorma, MaTe sangostwakarmini.

You have the right to work only but never to its fruits. Let not the fruits of action be your motive. Nor let your attachment be to inaction.

अधिष्ठानं तथा कर्ता करणं च पृथग्विधम् | विविधाश्च पृथक्चेष्टा दैवं चैवात्र पञ्चमम् || 14||
Bhagavad Gita, Chapter XVIII, Verse 14.

adhiṣhṭhānaṁ tathā kartā karaṇaṁ cha pṛithag-vidham vividhāśh cha pṛithak cheṣhṭā daivaṁ chaivātra pañchamam.

The body, the doer, the various senses, the many kinds of efforts, and Divine Providence —these are the five factors of action..

संस्कृत: सुभाशिता:

अन्नदानं परं दानं विध्याधनमतः परम् | अन्नेन क्षणिका तृप्तिः यावज्जीवं च विध्यया ||

Sanskrit Subhashita

Anna daanam param daanam vidyaa danaam atah param . annena kshinikaa truptih yaavajjeevam cha vidyayo.

Serving food to the needy is a charity of high order and so also teaching some one free of charge. Whereas food gives momentary satisfaction to the recipient, the satisfaction of becoming learned remains with the recipient throughout his lifetime.
