恶人害贤者,犹仰天而唾。
唾不至天,还从己堕。
逆风扬尘,尘不至彼,还坌己身。
贤不可毀,祸必灭己。

— 释迦牟尼佛
《四十二章经》: 第八章

When evil persons harm those virtuous, it is like looking up to the sky and spitting. Their spittle does not reach the sky, returning to follow, on themselves falling. Against the wind tossing dust, the dust does not reach others, returning as dust on their own bodies. The virtuous cannot be destroyed, while misfortune will definitely destroy themselves.

— Śākyamuni Buddha
(Sūtra Of 42 Sections: 8th Section)
