2.2 Chanakya Niti

भोज्यं भोजनशक्तिश्च रतिशक्तिर्वराङ्गना ।
विभवो दानशक्तिश्च नाल्पस्य तपसः फलम् ॥२.२॥

bhojyaṃ bhojanaśaktiśca ratiśaktirvarāṅganā |
vibhavo dānaśaktiśca nālpasya tapasaḥ phalam ||2.2||

to have food and the strength to consume it; to have a woman and the strength to ravish her; to have prosperity and the strength to give charity; these are not results of small austerities

Excerpt from the book “Old Chanakya Strategy: Aphorisms” by Rajen Jani
