One should win over kama (desire) by giving up all resolves, anger by giving up desire, greed by looking upon wealth as an evil, and fear by pondering on the true nature of reality (Tattva).
Shrimad Bhagavata Purana. 7.15.22
Those who have an element of attachment in them weaknesses appear even in the forests. Control over the five senses in the house itself is penance. One who follows the noncensurable path, for him, away from attachment, the home is the penance grove.
Excess is the cause of ruin. Hence one should avoid it in any case.
Obeisance to that Kali (age) where the words of wife are the Vedas, to earn money is Dharma and ones own intellect is authority.
Like the featherless young bird crying out for its mother, the hungry calf eager for cow's milk and like the wife who has intense longing for her beloved husband away from home, so am I, O lotus-eyed god, keen to behold you.
Shrimad Bhagavata Purana 6.11.26
People with great intellect conquest the impulse of anger while the people of lower caliber are conquered by it.
He who does not have mother in the house and has a wife of harsh speech, should go to a forest: (for him) as is the forest so is his house.
Brihanaradiya Puran, 10.44
The mother is a thousand times great than the father.
Never look at your own reflection in water.

Shrimad Bhagavata Purana 7.6.29
Never trust a bad friend. Even a good friend should not be trusted too much, because, if he ever gets angry, he will reveal all your secrets.

Even a serpent with no poison should raise its hood in full. Poison there may or may not be, the display of the hood itself strikes terror.
Control over the senses is the real penance.
A woman's mouth is forever pure.
Where women are revered, there the gods rejoice; but where they are not, all endeavors fail.
One should be careful in speech, restrained in one's thoughts and do no wrong with one's body. Once these three parts of action are cleared, then one will gain the path of the sages.
Dhammapada Atthakatha, Bk. 20 (6)
Question to Goddess Lakshmi: "Where do you live?" Her Answer: "I live in women devoted to their husbands".
Mahabharata Anushasana Parva 11.14
This is the family of the wise man- Dharma is father, forbearance is mother, compassion is wife, qualities are sons. All others are only illusions.
Worship the following as gods: your mother, father, teacher and the guest who comes unannounced to your home.
Taittriya Upanishad 1.11.2
A tree bends when its fruits have ripened; a fresh water cloud hangs low; similarly, a gentleman becomes all the more humble in prosperity.
Shakuntala Act IV, 12
