3.4 Chanakya Niti

दुर्जनस्य च सर्पस्य वरं सर्पो न दुर्जनः ।
सर्पो दंशति काले तु दुर्जनस्तु पदे पदे ॥३.४॥

durjanasya ca sarpasya varaṃ sarpo na durjanaḥ |
sarpo daṃśati kāle tu durjanastu pade pade ||3.4||

between an evil person and a snake, a snake is better and not an evil person; for a snake strikes only when it is fated, but an evil person strikes at every step

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