"With enjoyment, comes fear of disease

With social position, fear of disfavor

With riches, fear of hostile people (Kings)

With honor, fear of humiliation

With power, fear of enemies

With beauty, fear of old age

With scholarship, fear of challenges

With virtue, fear of traducers

With identification with the body, fear of death

Everything in this world is done with fear

Renunciation alone makes one fearless."

-- Bhartrihari
