Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, does not consider glory and fame to be of great account unless they are achieved through having my subjects respect Dhamma and practice Dhamma, both now and in the future.

In fact, it may be even more difficult for a great person to do.

There are no idealists in the plant world and no compassion. The rose and the morning glory know no mercy.
