Connected Discourses with Devatas

78. Love

“What should he not give who loves the good?
What should a mortal not relinquish?
What should one release when it’s good,
But not release when it’s bad?”

“A person should not give himself away;
He should not relinquish himself.
One should release speech that is good,
But not speech that is bad.”
