Everything the good renounce, the peaceful chatter not of fond delights, and whether touched by pleasure or pain nor joy or woe in the wise is seen.

“Everything the good renounce, the peaceful chatter not of fond delights, and whether touched by pleasure or pain nor joy or woe in the wise is seen.”

Explanation: The noble and wise persons are not attached to anything whatsoever in the world. The disciplined persons do not talk desiring worldly things, material benefits or sensual delights. Whatever fortune or ill-fortune may touch them, they remain calm, neither depressed or elated.

— Buddha(Verse 83, Dhammapada)
