Vedas on Waywardness of Fortune

Friends aren’t enough to make one happy, nor foes are enough to make one unhappy; wisdom cannot guarantee wealth nor wealth can guarantee happiness. Prudence isn’t enough for attainment of wealth nor foolishness hinders success; the wise man, not the fool, understands this secret of the world.

Fortune follows whomsoever she meets, the understanding and bold, the silly and cowardly, the dull and the wise, the weak and the strong. Just how a cow belongs to the herdsman, to the master and to the thief; to him who drinks her milk the cow verily belongs. The most foolish in the world and the most prudent easily win success; but he who stands midway between them is afflicted.
