One does not take a wrong course because of desire, because of hatred, because of delusion, or because of fear.
These are the four ways of not taking a wrong course."
If one does not transgress the Dhamma
through desire, hate, fear, or delusion,
one's fame becomes full like the moon
in the bright fortnight.
