SN 1.3.2 Purisasuttaṁ
Three Roots of Evil

King Pasenadi asks what things when they arise are unbeneficial, unsatisfactory and uncomfortable.

77. Lobho doso ca moho ca, purisaṁ pāpacetasaṁ,
Hiṁsanti attasambhūtā, tacasāraṁ va samphalaṁ.

Greed and hatred and delusion,
When they arise in his mind,
Destroy the person with bad thoughts,
Just as the fruit destroys the reed.

from Buddhist Wisdom Verses
