Jā 126 Asilakkhaṇajātakaṁ

Through a strategem a sneeze wins a bride and a kingdom for a prince, but a brahmin who sneezes loses his nose.

93. Tad-ev’ ekassa kalyāṇaṁ, tad-ev’ ekassa pāpakaṁ,
Tasmā sabbaṁ na kalyāṇaṁ, sabbaṁ cāpi na pāpakaṁ.

That which is good for one maybe
That which is bad for another,
There is nothing completely good,
There is nothing completely bad.

from Buddhist Wisdom Verses
