Evil ⧸ Verse 121

Let no man think lightly of evil, saying in his heart, It will not come nigh unto me. Even by the falling of water-drops a water-pot is filled; the fool becomes full of evil, even if he gather it little by little.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
