श्रुतमप्यधिगम्य ये रिपून् विनयन्ते न शरीरजन्मनः ।
जनयन्त्यचिराय संपदां अयशस्ते खलु चापलाश्रयम् ॥

– किरातार्जुनीय

shrutamapi adhigamya ye ripUn vinayante na sharIra janmanaH ।
janayanti achirAya sampadAm ayashaH te khalu chapalAshrayam ॥

– kirAtArjunIya

If a person is very well read and yet not able to conquer the enemies with in his own body – the senses, then he shall get the ill fame as a person who lost all his wealth. Indulging in sensory pleasures will deplete one of all his wealth and underscore the fact that such pleasures are all temporary.

One must control the enemies with in his own body – eyes and other senses. If one has control over them, then it is equivalent to have won over the whole world.

One must not hurry while starting something important. If you hurry, it is a recipie for disaster. Success automatically comes to those who patiently plan before starting something. Success is attracted towards such qualities.

श्वस्त्वया सुखसंवित्तिः स्मरणीयाधुनातनी |
इति स्वप्नोपमान् मत्वा कामान्मागास्तदंगताम् ||

All the sensory pleasures you enjoy today will only be recalled as memories tomorrow. Tomorrow they are nothing more real than dream. Hence sensory pleasures must be treated like all other dreams – unreal.

श्रद्धेया विप्रलब्धारः प्रिया विप्रियकारिणः |
सुदुस्त्यजाः त्यजन्त्योऽपि कामाः कष्टा हि शत्रवः ||

Sensory pleasures are worse than conventional enemies. They will corrupt a person who has till then lead a righteous life. If a person embraces them with love, it will destroy him in return. It will not let go of him easily even if he wants to. Indeed, traditional enemies are better.

व्रजन्ति ते मूढधियः पराभवं
    भवन्ति मायाविषु येन मायिनः |
प्रविश्य हि घ्नंति शठास्तथाविधान्
    असंवृताङ्गान् निशिता इवेषवः ||

– किरातार्जुनीय

If person does not deal with a crook in crooked manner, he is bound to face defeat. They must be paid back in their own coin. Just like how an arrow most certainly hits (and hurts) that part of the body (how ever small) that is not covered by the armor, such deceitful people search and hurt only those people who are innocent and incapable of deceit themselves.

Greatness like fame, happiness and ability to rise above human mediocrity comes naturally (as if coincidental) to people who have trained themselves not to react to joy and sadness and believe in action

One must destroy the darkness that emanates from anger as early as possible. If unchecked, it will destroy everything. The darks spots on the moon will engulf the entire moon during the waning phase.

One who does surrender himself for money, one who does take up immoral occupation for money, one who does not control his senses will finally end up losing his freedom and be domesticated like a cow.
